Newsletter



Welcome to the Cleanzine



Welcome to the Winter Issue of the CLEANZINE, our area newsletter. The primary purpose of our newsletter is to carry the message of hope and recovery to all sick and suffering addicts.


The theme of this issue is “identify not compare.” I went to a speaker meeting last week. One thing I found particularly insightful was the speaker's suggestion to focus on the similarities between addicts, not the differences. Differences are easy to spot. Age, race, sexual identity, drug of choice, and length of addiction are all things that can separate us from our program, if I choose to compare. Instead, if I choose to identify with the stories and experience of addicts around me, I can strengthen my recovery.


In this winter issue of the Central Ohio Area of Narcotics Anonymous Cleanzine we are examining the similarities that bring us together in recovery. Two addicts recount their stories and how they used the program to recover. Another piece examines and reflects on steps six through nine, offering insight and experience. Additionally, we have a beautiful poem written by one of our area's members. And finally, we've included the December Area Service Committee chairperson's report.

Just For Today

February 24, 2017

A new influence

Page 56

"Personality change was what we really needed. Change from self-destructive patterns of life became necessary."

Basic Text, p. 15

In early life, most of us were capable of joy and wonder, of giving and receiving unconditional love. When we started using, we introduced an influence into our lives that slowly drove us away from those things. The further we were pushed down the path of addiction, the further we withdrew from joy, wonder, and love.

That journey was not taken overnight. But however long it took, we arrived at the doors of NA with more than just a drug problem. The influence of addiction had warped our whole pattern of living beyond recognition.

The Twelve Steps work miracles, it's true, but not many of them are worked overnight. Our disease slowly influenced our spiritual development for the worse. Recovery introduces a new influence to our lives, a source of fellowship and spiritual strength slowly impelling us into new, healthy patterns of living.

This change, of course, doesn't "just happen." But if we cooperate with the new influence NA has brought to our lives, over time we will experience the personality change we call recovery. The Twelve Steps provide us with a program for the kind of cooperation required to restore joy, wonder, and love to our lives.

Just for Today: I will cooperate with the new influence of fellowship and spiritual strength NA has introduced to my life, I will work the next step in my program.

NA was simultaneously started in California and New York? New York had more focus on autonomy of groups, while the California version had a more unified approach which eventually succeeded.
