    Thirty years ago today, I encountered a group of random individuals who assured me life could be pretty good if I would follow a few simple instructions. Several of them had been around varying numbers of years, but I seriously doubted my ability to do what they had done. Then a young man shared that he had been clean and sober for 30 days thanks to doing what these folks suggested. In that moment I found genuine hope and started down a new path that only had to be traveled one day at a time. Many thanks to all the people I've encountered along the way. Life certainly is pretty good.

    I now have a support group of friends, some with 30+ years and most in the 20 year range. What I have found is that above all, they are content and serene, which is something I needed and wanted. They accepted me for who I am and have kept me in the middle of the herd giving me a new sense of purpose in life. And for that I will forever be grateful.

    I think you nailed it! "keeping me in the middle of the herd giving me a new sense of purpose in life"
    Me too! Always the exception, always the scared outsider, always cynical, then I hit my bottom.
    Now a part of, not apart from, now able to accept myself and others, for the first time in my life, a true member of a community.
    Herd? Sometimes I call AA my tribe. And what a wonderful herd/tribe we be!
