My 18th NA Meeting

 

logo09

 

I got up in front of the class and spoke at this meeting. I overcame my fear of public speaking and just did it.

I started off my NA speech by saying, “The only reason why I’m here is because I was assigned 6 months of NA by my counselor in order to earn back some goodtime that I lost 20 years ago for smoking weed.” I  mentioned my blog and how I post after every NA meeting. Then I shared the following posts: My 1st NA Meeting, and My 2nd NA Meeting.

As I read, I’d periodically look up and scan the room. I was surprised to see that I had everyone’s attention. There was no side talk or aimless doodling… all eyes were on me. It felt good. I concluded by expressing my desire to “pay it forward”. I’m talking about the gift of blogging.

I offered everyone a Stone City Blog flyer that my wife and I put together, which informs guys how to get started if they want to blog. Everyone took a flyer, except for two guys.

It is my sincere hope that writing and sharing will help others the way it has helped me.
