We went to a meeting at this place in Canada last year. This year, I don’t know. Alaska? Maybe. Probably not. I know I did not want to go to a French-speaking meeting in Canada, since I don’t speak French. Happily English meetings were plentiful. It’s a blessing I’m always aware of and grateful for, the meetings in the places I go. I know many people in the world aren’t so lucky.
We celebrated May anniversaries at my group last night and I got an XXXI coin. It’s truly amazing to me, like an unfathomable amount of money or something. I remember a long time a ago when a sponsor of mine celebrated 16 years and that seemed like an incredibly long amount of time to have in the program, not drinking.
I don’t have much to write about, but I do want to say that I still participate in Alcoholics Anonymous for many reasons, but I guess the biggest reason is that some bit of sanity has returned to me, and I realize that without it I couldn’t stop drinking, and that drinking was killing me and giving me an awful life in the mean time.
