Hello all. I’m hoping to get a little feedback from those members who have realized a sense of serenity and peace through either a 12 step program (AA) or any other form of recovery that you may have chosen to address the issue of alcoholism.
Basically, I’m curious as to at what point in your recovery, and after taking what action (step-work/service work) you began to get a sense of peace and serenity?
I’m terrible at expecting immediate gratification and obviously it’s not working that way. I know that I will get out of it what I put into it, and I am active in AA and attempting to work a strong program, but it always makes me feel better when I hear of the success of others who have been in my position.
So…if anyone can share a little of their strength, hope and serenity it would be greatly appreciated.
