Newsletter



Welcome to Cleanzine



Welcome to the Summer 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 current issue is all about love. Love is a word we often hear in our meetings. We hug and say, “I love you” to each other. A sponsor and sponsee shares a loving bond between each other. What is love? How will I find love? How will I learn to love myself? These are some of the questions we often ask ourselves at meetings. When I came into the rooms I knew nothing about love. I was wrecked from many years of using. Further, I had broken the trust of my loved ones; I hated my image in the mirror. In the rooms I heard the proverbial saying, “we will love you till you learn to love yourself.” I had no clue what this saying meant. I was needy, broken, and all I knew was to demand attention. My relationships with my sponsee brothers are teaching me about love. I love both of my sponsors. My first sponsor is a patient and caring person. I learnt a lot about love by observing his relationship with all of his sponsees. My new sponsor opens up his life with me, and we share across our differences in order to hold each other up.

Our literature says that one addict honestly sharing with another addict is the heartbeat of recovery. In the basic text love is defined as the flow of life energy from one person to another. In “Living Clean: The Journey Continues” love is defined as an action; we hug each other, we tell each other the difficult truth, we learn to work lovingly across differences in order to achieve unity in the program. In this issue we present multiple perspectives about love. One addict speaks about the ways the NA program is teaching the addict to love oneself and each other, whereas, another addict mentions love as the ability to tell the complete truth. The truth according to this addict is liberating, since telling the truth requires living under no pretension or covering to project a false image. Love is felt in our hugs, phone calls, service commitments, and most of all in the smile of a new comer. Love shared between fellow addicts helps us stay clean and present through all of life’s ups and downs. In a reflection about her journey clean, an addict writes about staying present for her grand mother through the death of her mother. In recovery we learn to love ourselves, be present for life and become responsible members o......

The ties that bind

Page 45

"As long as the ties that bind us together are stronger than those that would tear us apart, all will be well."

Basic Text, p. 60

Many of us feel that without NA we would surely have died from our disease. Hence, its existence is our very lifeline. However, disunity is an occasional fact of life in Narcotics Anonymous; we must learn to respond in a constructive way to the destructive influences that sometimes arise in our fellowship. If we decide to be part of the solution instead of the problem, we are headed in the right direction.

Our personal recovery and the growth of NA is contingent upon maintaining an atmosphere of recovery in our meetings. Are we willing to help our group deal constructively with conflict? As group members, do we strive to work out difficulties openly, honestly, and fairly? Do we seek to promote the common welfare of all our members rather than our own agenda? And, as trusted servants, do we take into consideration the effect our actions might have on newcomers?

Service can bring out both the best and the worst in us. But it is often through service that we begin to get in touch with some of our more pressing defects of character Do we shrink from service commitments rather than face what we might find out about ourselves? If we bear in mind the strength of the ties that bind us together-our recovery from active addiction-all will be well.

Just for Today: I will strive to be of service to our fellowship. I will be unafraid to discover who I am.

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.
