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

October 22, 2017

Look who's talking

Page 308

"Our disease is so cunning that it can get us into impossible situations."

Basic Text, p.83

Some of us say, "My disease is talking to me." Others say, "My head won't turn off." Still others refer to "the committee in my mind" or "the monkey on my back." Let's face it. We suffer from an incurable malady that continues to affect us, even in recovery. Our disease gives us warped information about what's going on in our lives. It tells us not to look at ourselves because what we'll see is too scary. Sometimes it tells us we're not responsible for ourselves and our actions; other times, it tells us that everything wrong with the world is our fault. Our disease tricks us into trusting it.

The NA program provides us with many voices that counter our addiction, voices we can trust. We can call our sponsor for a reality check. We can listen to the voice of an addict trying to get clean. The ultimate solution is to work the steps and draw on the strength of a Higher Power. That will get us through those times when "our disease is talking."

Just for Today: I will ignore the "voice" of my addiction. I will listen to the voice of my program and a Power greater than myself.

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.
