Carrying the message
We hear the maxim - Carry the message - often when two or more of us meet and usually at meetings in format readings.
But what exactly is the message?
Our 12th Step states: 'Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs'.
Our 5th Tradition tells us: 'Each Group has but one primary purpose - to carry the message te the addict who still suffers'.
This message, as we understand it, is the program of recovery as presented in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
In keeping with our theme, our program this year is centered primarily on chapters from the Big Book and useful and informative programs about Cocaine Anonymous, its service legacy ans structure, and how and why these are integral to our primary purpose - to carry the message.
Who is it for?
Cocaine Anonymous is ever inclusive - and, despite it's name - is not a drug specific fellowship. Anyone seeking recovery from drugs or alcohol is warmly welcome.
Why should I go?
Conventions are a great way to learn a lot more about the program of recovery from addiction to all mind altering substances including alcohol, and to meet other recovering addicts.
