Planning Our Future Follow-Up Survey

On Saturday, 9/23/23, addicts in GPRNA attended a Planning Our Future event which aimed to identify ways in which GPRNA can better carry the message to the addict who still suffers.  Attendees generated three consensus project ideas.  Now, we are asking for input from all addicts in GPRNA to determine which project should be started first.

Just For Today:

February 23, 2024
Messages and messengers
Page 55
"Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities."
Tradition Twelve

The Twelfth Tradition reminds us of the importance of putting "principles before personalities." In recovery meetings, this might be paraphrased, "don't shoot the messenger!." We often get the message confused with the messenger, and negate what someone shares at a meeting because we have personality conflicts with the person speaking.

If we are having problems with what certain people have to share at meetings, we might want to seek the guidance of our sponsor. Our sponsor can help us concentrate on what's being said rather than who's saying it. Our sponsor can also help us address the resentments that may be keeping us from acknowledging the value of some particular person's recovery experience. It is surprising how much more we can get out of meetings when we allow ourselves to do as our Twelfth Tradition suggests, focusing on recovery principles rather than personalities.

Just for Today: I will practice the principle of anonymity in today's NA meeting. I will focus on the message of recovery, not the personality of the messenger.
