The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

At this time of year, most people reflect on the past year.  Some us also make some plans for the next year too.

So we at the Recovered podcast thought we would take time to reflect on 

our own recovering program specifically and 

the recovering community in general 

over the past 12 months.

In general, what are your thoughts on AA and the recovering community as a whole over the past year?

What steps were significant for you, why?

What prayers were important to you, why?

What slogans helped, why?

This year I moved a little closer to acceptance

After Andrew’s suicide

I talked with Russ long and hard about why…

Why Andrew, 

Why me, 

why this why that

Russ encouraged me to keep asking my higher power about these things

Russ told me that some day, maybe the need for an answer may not seem so important.

What I have found is that by accepting what has happened and try to help others with our experience has brought new meaning to my recovery program.

So my question in prayer has moved from why to how….

my prayer has moved from why God

to How can I make meaning

what can i do to honour Andrew’s memory?

He only posed the possibility that me need for an answer might fade.

This has made a tremendous difference in my outlook.
