My 11th NA Meeting


thC8MP42MP - Copy


This NA post is about the 12th principal in Chapter 4: HOW IT WORKS. It says,


“Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to addicts, and to practice these principals in all our affairs.”


When I translate and apply this to my daily life, it reads like this: “Having had a spiritual awakening, I carry the message of hope and love through my actions as I practice these principles in all my affairs.”

By writing this post and giving these principle’s specific and in depth thought, it adds to the long and tedious process of cleaning up a once very polluted thought atmosphere.

This is exactly why I love NA and what it’s doing for me.

At first I was reluctant and skeptical. I’m not a drug addict. I don’t need NA. I’m only here to get back good time. But as I sat in that very first meeting, I realized I needed to change my thinking and seek the good within this program.

My hope is that someone reading this will get something valuable out of it that they can apply to their daily life.
