The Wisdom of Norm
My first home group had a fun format for the last Friday noon meeting each month. We called it “chip day” and that’s when we celebrated the sobriety anniversaries for any group member that had occurred during that month. It was a very special event. We had a big cake and lots of happy fellowship. Normal attendance at the clubhouse would almost double to around 70 members on chip day. Folks from all around the area would return to celebrate recovery milestones with old friends and newcomers alike. One particular Friday stands out as a reminder for me to help keep my ego in check.
