Newsletter



Welcome to Cleanzine



Welcome to the Spring 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.

In this issue we focus on sponsorship – “the two-way street...a loving, spiritual, and compassionate relationship that helps both the sponsor and sponsee” (IP No11). Two of our area seniors share their experience, strength, and hope with sponsorship. One of the articles mentions sponsorship as one of the first loving and trusting relationships the addict had known after years of using and being confused about intimacy and love. Another addict recalls their experiences of working with sponsors and sponsees over years gone by. The addict invites all of us to take a leap of faith and trust with our sponsors.

Our literature tells us “a sponsor is not necessarily a friend, but maybe someone in whom we confide. We can share things with our sponsor that we might not be comfortable sharing in a meeting” (IP No 11). Learning to trust a sponsor is key to working the steps. Our sponsor guides us through the steps, traditions and concepts, takes our phone calls, and shares their own experience, strength and hope with us. The relationship with our sponsor reflects our ability to trust another human being, and the capacity to practice kindness and love. I could not be eighteen months and a few days clean without the generous support and guidance of my sponsor. Recently, I have been gifted with two young men who continue to show their trust in me as their Sponsor. Sponsorship is truly a two way street. Each time I take their phone-calls or go over step work with them, I am filled with hope and gratitude. Listening to their struggles with insanity and journey to surrender helps me understand different aspects of recovery. We sincerely hope the two feature articles help you with understanding “that special person” in our lives.

The key to our recovery is working the steps. An addict shares his experience of working Steps Four and Five. The addict mentions how taking a moral inventory and sharing the inventory with a sponsor helped him develop a deeper relationship with another human being. Steps Four and Five allowed him to understand patterns in his life. Instrumental in his realizations was his sponsor’s guidance. Once again, we are reminded that finding a sponsor who is willing to help us with step work is vital for our recovery. We......

Conflict

Page 194

"We learn that conflicts are a part of reality, and we learn new ways to resolve them instead of running from them."

Basic Text, p. 90

From time to time, we all experience conflicts. It may be that we just can't get along with that new co-worker. Maybe our friends are driving us crazy. Or perhaps our partner isn't living up to our expectations. Dealing with any conflict is difficult for recovering addicts.

When tempers rise, it is often a good idea to back away from the situation until cooler minds prevail. We can always return to further discussion when we have calmed down. We can't avoid troubling situations, but we can use time and distance to find perspective.

Conflict is a part of life. We can't go through our entire recovery without encountering disagreements and differences of opinion. Sometimes we can back away from these situations, taking time to reflect on them, but there always comes a time when conflict must be resolved. When that time comes, we take a deep breath, say a prayer, and apply the principles our program has given us: honesty, openness, responsibility, forgiveness, trust, and all the rest. We didn't get clean to keep running from life - and in recovery, we don't have to run anymore.

Just for Today: The principles my program has given me are sufficient to guide me through any situation. I will strive to confront conflict in a healthy way.

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.
