All Is Right With the World

I count my sobriety from January 13, 1992. I stopped drinking in November 1983, but continued to use other substances until that date. I believe my alcoholism convinced me that other substances were okay to use. Since my "return" to AA, I have, by the grace of God, wanted with all my heart the "full meal deal" offered by AA.

I have received many gifts from the AA program, but the greatest to date is the gift of listening to others share their experience, strength, and hope. I have also been privileged to hear several Fifth Steps, and this is a profound way to enjoy the grace of God in our life-giving program.
