  Hi, my name is Nan, my sobriety date is 9/23/01 and I am a happy alcoholic. That is the way I identify at meetings.  It sounds like an oxymoron, but when you've been entombed in the bowels of Hell, this new life looks like Heaven and I am deliriously thrilled to be here.  There are a few who are offended by my "happy" demeanor, but in the words of that can-poppin', spinach-chompin' sailor man, "I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam."

   Writing has always been my therapy, and the Muses began after I learned about the death of a struggling Sister in sobriety.  I wrote about it and decided to send it to the AA women on my mailing list.  The feedback was so heartwarming, I continued to send out my daily thoughts and observations; my musings.

   Thank you for letting me share my experience, strength, and hope with you.

~Nan

Recovery Times has but one purpose and goal, and that is to carry the message of 12-Step Recovery  -- as written and practiced in its founding organization's (AA's) unaltered 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, and 12 Concepts for World Service, but not limited to only AA-sanctioned material (such as The Holy Bible, The Koran, The Upanishads, etc.).

Recovery Times publishes only each author's opinions or positions on all matters, and doesn't necessarily agree or disagree with anyone on anything. Our Principles and Protocols are expressed beautifully in the Prayer of St. Francis (p.99, 12-Steps and 12-Traditions).
