The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

When we come into recovery, we begin a whole new way of life.

This means changing our actions and our attitudes.

We are promised a new freedom and a new happiness.

The Big Book talks about the program resulting in huge

emotional displacements and rearrangements.

By definition, we are going to experience t

hings, situations, people for the first time.

This is our topic tonight.

First Times in Recovery

Where do you guys want to start?

We may want to talk about our first meeting our first sponsor, our first holiday sober.

Let’s keep the New comer in mind.

Let’s share our experience, strength, and hope so that the new guy doesn’t feel so unique.

Like he is the only one to fear watching the Lions on Thanksgiving day sober for the first time.

There is hope.  Let’s give that to them tonight.
