Newsletter



Welcome to the Cleanzine



Welcome to the Winter Issue of the CLEANZINE, our area newsletter. The primary purpose of our newsletter is to carry the message of hope and recovery to all sick and suffering addicts.


The theme of this issue is “identify not compare.” I went to a speaker meeting last week. One thing I found particularly insightful was the speaker's suggestion to focus on the similarities between addicts, not the differences. Differences are easy to spot. Age, race, sexual identity, drug of choice, and length of addiction are all things that can separate us from our program, if I choose to compare. Instead, if I choose to identify with the stories and experience of addicts around me, I can strengthen my recovery.


In this winter issue of the Central Ohio Area of Narcotics Anonymous Cleanzine we are examining the similarities that bring us together in recovery. Two addicts recount their stories and how they used the program to recover. Another piece examines and reflects on steps six through nine, offering insight and experience. Additionally, we have a beautiful poem written by one of our area's members. And finally, we've included the December Area Service Committee chairperson's report.

Just For Today

August 31, 2016

Gratitude

Page 253

"Hopeless living problems have become joyously changed. Our disease has been arrested, and now anything is possible."

Basic Text, p.106

The NA program has given us more freedom than we ever dreamed possible. Sometimes, though, in the daily routine, we lose track of how much we've been given. How, exactly, have our lives changed in Narcotics Anonymous?

The bottom line of recovery, of course, is freedom from the compulsion to use. No longer must we devote all our resources to feeding our addiction. No longer must we endanger, humiliate, or abuse ourselves or others just to get the next "fix." Abstinence itself has brought great freedom to our lives.

Narcotics Anonymous has given us much more than simple abstinence-we've been given a whole new life. We've taken our inventory and have identified the defects of character that bound us for so long, keeping us from living and enjoying life. We've surrendered those shortcomings, taken responsibility for them, and sought the direction and power we need to live differently. Our home group has given us the personal warmth and support that helps us continue living in recovery. And topping all this off, we have the love, care, and guidance of the God we've come to understand in NA.

In the course of day-to-day recovery, we sometimes forget how much our lives have changed in Narcotics Anonymous. Do we fully appreciate what our program has given us?

Just for Today: Recovery has given me freedom. I will greet the day with hope, grateful that anything is possible today.

Did You Know?

NA was simultaneously started in California and New York? New York had more focus on autonomy of groups, while the California version had a more unified approach which eventually succeeded.
