Tradition Three in action

This is how, after one and a half years in AA, God helped me resolve my resentment toward the Third Tradition. I didn't understand why dually addicted people couldn't talk about their drugs other than alcohol.

So God placed two very young AA members in my life, with the same resentment. We three prayed about starting an NA (Narcotics Anonymous) group here. It had been tried three times before and had failed. We were unsure but decided to try.
