Heard at a meeting - 090621

(a paraphrase)
"I tried everything to fill that 'god shaped hole' in me: relationships, sex, money, jobs, status, booze, drugs, family, activity, work, food, shopping, children, exercise, status, image, good looks, jewelry, art, distractions - all those things failed to fit that hole...

"In the end, it was only the God I found in AA - through hanging out in the fellowship, working our program of recovery, and being of service - that this hole was filled and I felt complete."

I've tried to fill the hole inside me with lots of stuff as well. It never worked. Thanks Ed.

Sounds good. My 'heard at a meeting' was last week.

Someone recounted their sponsor's advice that since it took 36 years of walking into the forest that one could not walk out in 6 weeks.

But it only takes 12 steps.
