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......

Real values

Page 255

"We become able to make wise and loving decisions based on principles and ideals that have real value in our lives."

Basic Text, p.105

Addiction gave us a certain set of values, principles we applied in our lives. "You pushed me" one of those values told us, "so I pushed back, hard." "It's mine" was another value generated by our disease. "Well, okay, maybe it wasn't mine to start with, but I liked it, so I made it mine." Those values were hardly values at all-more like rationalizations-and they certainly didn't help us make wise and loving decisions. In fact, they served primarily to dig us deeper and deeper into the grave we'd already dug for ourselves.

The Twelve Steps give us a strong dose of real values, the kind that help us live in harmony with ourselves and those around us. We place our faith not in ourselves, our families, or our communities, but in a Higher Power-and in doing so, we grow secure enough to be able to trust our communities, our families, and even ourselves. We learn to be honest, no matter what-and we learn to refrain from doing things we might want to hide. We learn to accept responsibility for our actions. "It's mine" is replaced with a spirit of selflessness. These are the kind of values that help us become a responsible, productive part of the life around us. Rather than digging us deeper into a grave, these values restore us to the world of the living.

Just for Today: I am grateful for the values I've developed. I am thankful for the ability they give me to make wise, loving decisions as a responsible, productive member of my community.

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.
