I first experienced “Popsicle Sticks” at the Thursday Midnight night meeting at the Northwest Alano Club in Wayne Michigan. At first I hated it, then I got used to it, then it became my favorite meeting.

It is no more cowardly to use help in recovering from a drinking problem, than it is, to use a crutch if you have a broken leg. A crutch is a beautiful thing, to those who need it.

The rhythm of our own special routine has a soothing effect, and an apt principle around which to organize some orderliness is—yes, “First Things First.”

Recovered Podcast

Some of us insist that it was never the availability of the beverage that led us to drink, any more than the immediate unavailability kept us from that drink we really wanted. We live in a drinking society and we cannot avoid the presence of alcoholic beverages forever.

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.

What First thing would you like to share
