Abstaining or Recovery ???
Meetings help, but meetings are only a small part to how GA works....

GA is a 12 step organisation that offers the program that keeps me in recovery...

For me the word recovery means healing.
For me abstaining only means that I have stopped causing myself self abuse and pains.
Once I abstained from all unhealthy habits I was able to exchange unhealthy habits in to healthy habits. 
The wording I want to be normal is not very healthy.
Until I admitted to myself that my unhealthy reactions to people life and situations was an indicator that my hurt inner child was not healed.
Before my recovery I use to bury and suppress my feelings and my emotions.
The recovery program was a manual to finding a healthy life.
Untill I got my ass in to gear and put time and effort in my recovery I was going to remain reacting in such unhealthy ways.
My making a decision was setting a boundary to live a healthy life.
The recovery program was not about who is right wrong, or not about who is good or bad, it is all about me  becoming healthy.
No one could do it for me.
Untill I admitted to myself what was healthy or unhealthy I could not change.
Every pain in my life caused fears I did not understand.
The recovery program was about putting much time and effort in to my recovery.
To become motivated in so many heaalthy ways.
I am a non religious person.
Yet over time I gained faith and hope in myself.
If I am trully  an equal to all people in the recovery program then if any one is able to achive success so can I.
Love and peace to every one.
