Sparkling Raconteur

A weird thing happened at that Friday night meeting.  Something came over me.  An ease with others, heretofore only achieved after a glass of something.  It was like a veil came off.  I was teasing my sponsor about her new hair colors.  Giggling conspiratorily with another of her sponsees.  I was making merry.  I was at ease with others, friends and strangers.  My insides matched my outside.

That was me being released from something.  The gifts of program are beyond the questions that I ask of it.


  1. Yes! That feeling of freedom from something we carried too long!!! I recognize the liberation in your words. When you read my story, you will know much of my story, Carol. Thanks for 'riding along in my taxi'

  2. It is so good to have that feeling of comfort around people in program. I have come to have such good friends there.
