Grapevine : July 2011
on a friend's suggestion. The more I showed up, the more people reached out, and I began to see life in a way that I had not been able to before. These new friends understood me. Before I knew it, I hadn't had a drink for quite some time. My new friends told me to get a sponsor, work the Steps, and keep going to meetings, which I did. I picked up service com- mitments, learned how to be on time, andtodowhatIsayIamgoingtodo and how important it is to help oth- ers. In turn, I received a dignity that I never had before and started feeling okay in my own skin, able to look the world in the eye. Most importantly, I have developed a relationship with my Higher Power that I am grateful for every day. I now have a life I never dreamed possible. I'm active in my communi- ty, a student in college, a great father to my children and I recently got en- gaged to a wonderful woman who is my best friend. Years have passed and I now consider my AA friends more like a family. I know that, together, we can get through anything life has to offer, including the pain.Jason H.
