This week, we read and discussed how to be abstinent during holidays or on vacation. We read the recent post on this topic and some of the handouts which are available from the OA World Service website.

Due to the fluid nature of the internet, please go to their website directly to obtain (if still available) their documents on Abstinence.

The documents that we discussed in our meeting were:

  1. Action Plan Rev slides
  2. Abstinence Retreat Slides
  3. Abstinence presentation
  4. abstinence and plan of eating handout and
  5. Tips for Abstinent Travel

This is a repost of the picture I made of how to work a program of recovery as given to me by my first sponsor:


Next week, we will continue our regular group format of reading the 4 Absolutes and the stories out of the AA Big Book.

The homework is:

“What does it look like in your life when you are Absolutely Loving? Write out a vision for yourself….”.

Here is the link for the Four Absolutes Pamphlet:


The plan for our group is to divide our time between doing the steps and reading from the stories in the AA Big Book.

I am so grateful to be sharing this journey with all of you!

Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.

“Together we can do what we can never do alone.”

In love and service,
