Grapevine : October 2011
aagrapevine.org 1 In "Slip and Slide," an AA in Australia writes that until he learned to love his new life, he kept getting drunk. The same situation occurs for a woman in "Go Mow the Lawn," who discovers that by grabbing hold of the tools of recovery she becomes the person she was meant to be. And in "Six--Pack and Back," a member is in and out for 34 years before developing a relationship with a Higher Power. "If I had had a reliance on God and not people, the outcome might have been different," he writes. These stories of experience, strength and hope show how recovery is achieved in spite of setbacks, and the authors go on to lead full, productive lives. Similarly, a bipolar member is able to use prayer, meditation and other tools to regain serenity in "Getting Off the Roller Coaster." And in "Tree of Life" a doctor is able to restore his career with a simple act of service. Please share your own experience, strength and hope with the Fellowship. On page 60 you will find issue themes you can submit your personal stories for. And you will find the complete editorial calendar and writer's guidelines on AAGrapevine.org, where you can submit online as well as subscribe to Grapevine's online publications. Look forward to hearing from you! In fellowship, The Managing Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Relapse can often be a part of recovery, as this month's stories by members demonstrate.
