Turning to Tuesday

It will be Tuesday very soon, my "night" is over and a new day begins.  I visit two recovery sites every day and email one friend who doesn't have access to either of those (personal preference).  I would not have been able to be in recovery if I didn't belong to some "group" or another - I cannot do it all by myself.  That's why I do this everyday I can.

 

One thing that keeps me on the right track today is a feeling of loyalty to other people in recovery, no matter where they may be. We depend on each other. I know, for example, that I’d be letting them down if I ever took a drink or used. When I entered recovery, I found a group of people who were not only helping each other, but who were loyal to each other. Am I loyal to my group and to my friends in recovery?
