Get to a MeetingPremium Content

If you want to remain clean and sober, I suggest that you get to a meeting, and frequently.

Early in my recovery, there was one thing that I did tire of – the act of defending myself. I was so occupied with convincing others that I was not using, it seemed certain that I was. So, in the hopes of eliminating that annoyance, I started going to meetings. I chose to do doing something that came highly recommended – I began to just listen. I'm not saying that you shouldn't share, but in the beginning just sit quietly and pay attention. The first couple of meetings may surprise you. With the exception of one or two, the people around you look normal, healthy, content, satisfied, and to some degree – successful. They do not look like winos, drunkards, junkies, or residents of skid row.

Topic Suggestions for MeetingsPremium Content

At the beginning of the meeting ask those attending if there is anything on their mind or that they would like to discuss with their fellow Christians in recovery. If no one responds suggest a topic. Think up something that YOU would like to discuss. Below are some suggestions. You do not have to stick with these topics. These are only suggestions!

Use these CIR Materials as a springboard for discussion:
CIR Workbook & Meeting Guide
CIR Devotional Journal
Daily Recovery Thought, Scripture & Prayer as a springboard for discussion.
The 12 Steps

Select a favorite scripture and discuss that.

One on One with NewbiesPremium Content

At times you may find yourself in a one-on-one situation (you and one newcomer alone in the chat room). Remember that some people are not Christians, or may have little knowledge of the Bible. Do not launch in immediately with Christian words and concepts, and lots of Bible quotes. Start from where they are spiritually and not where you are. Pray asking God for guidance
