Just for today:
I will strive to be a part of unity.
I know that unity does not equal uniformity.
Unity is a must in Narcotics Anonymous.
Basic Text, p. 63

Hello and God Bless you.
Well its finally snowing in NYC. I looked out my window this morning and saw snow and immediately thought I should go back to bed I don’t feel like going to a meeting.  Then I thought about how when I was using snow didn’t stop me from running back and forth to the spot or hanging out looking for trouble or whatever to get into. So I looked at my phone and the Just for Today spoke about Unity. Then it hit me, I never felt like I belonged anywhere and how the unity I see and feel in the rooms is one of the things that attracted me to NA. That plus the fact that I do this to save my life got me going to a meeting. The meeting was a anniversary for a brother with 14 years. Unity showing up again.

I  am grateful to be a part of a group of people who get together, network, share and hangout. But what’s really great is there’s no drugs, gun play or jail time involved. I think I like the new unity a whole lot better than my old perception of unity.

The more time passes by the more I can see and feel that what I always wanted I have finally found. I have tried many things to get clean jails institutions etc. Who would have known the last thing I tried would be the one thing that worked. Gotta Love It.

    “Then I thought about how when I was using snow didn't stop me from running back and forth to the spot or hanging out looking for trouble or whatever to get into.” A very powerful statement you made to yourself and thank you for sharing it. This will help me in my PTSD struggles of getting out of the house! Thanks so much my friend…
    “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self…(Ephesians 4:22-24a).”
    I love this Christian principal! It is a wonderful way of Recovery : )
