At a meeting I attended tonight someone drew an analogy about the disease of addiction and the disease of cancer. He stated that if cancer patients had the ability to arrest their disease by merely going to meetings with other cancer sufferers, you would not be able to keep people away. Of course addiction is a potentially fatal disease, in much the same way cancer is, but never have I thought about it in this perspective. We have the ability to do this for ourselves, control our disease by going to meetings and sharing/listening to each other, give/gather strength, experiences, and tools to use and combat and hopefully arrest our affliction. So in a way we are luckier than we think. And I am humbled yet again, and thankful for the fellowship and the years of sobriety and experience available to me in AA.
