In my (SL)AA experience, I have never met a member who has not experienced some degree of pain.
I have never met anyone who decided to come into the program on a beautiful morning in spring when everything was going well.
Most of us entered on our knees, and the sharing of this mutual pain is a large part of what brings us back to meetings.

Thought to Ponder . . .
When I share my story and remember the last days of my addiction,
I remember the desperation of selling the last pieces of my soul.
