Hi! My name is Cindy Charles Ouellette and I do not want a drink or drug today, no matter what! My sobriety date, but by the Grace of God, is December 27, 2003.
I did get clean and sober in a 3rd world country and did not have a support team in the beginning. So, I learned about LIM – a recovery newsletter sent out every 2 months for people in recovery who are Loners & International. It is a snail mail meeting. I learned about the most wonderful internet recovery listening library. It is a WOW! XA-Speakers.org. I ordered the Big Book study CDs by Joe and Charlie, and I got an on line sponsor, who guided me thru my new sober life 6 years.
Have you heard of an old timer from the beginnings of 12 Step recovery named Clarence Snyder? He and his wife, Gladys, elected to be open about their recovery in order to be of service to anyone seeking recovery help. I, too, elect to break my own anonymity.
However, alcoholism and addictions are no respecter of persons. What am I saying? Some Doctors, CEOs, policemen, bartenders, professors, missionaries, judges, school board leaders, nurses, politicians, priests ( and on and on ); are also on the list of persons, having an honest desire not to pick up or use today, no matter what.
Of these people and more, they choose to maintain anonymity for professional reasons. Then, there are people living on top of a mountain, in the middle of an island, on the front lines of battle, in the air, on the ocean, (and like I was once) living in a foreign country, where 12 Step meetings are not in English.
So, if for any reason you cannot get to a 12 step meeting and need a boost of recovery power just for today, I invite you, with love, to tune in and enjoy my mini bite size addiction recovery tips.
Please invite others and go to my web site: CindyCharlesOuellette.com to share your own favorite recovery tips to be broadcasted. That would be so nice of you! If you would like your home group or recovery institute to be mentioned as sharing a tip, just state so.
