STEP FIVE CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER
I have been sober in Alcoholics Anonymous for 22 years and step five has changed my life forever. The reason why is that I was never right from an early age. I felt like a square peg in a round hole. It seemed like everyone else had the script to life and I didn’t. I was uncomfortable around people and felt like they were trying to have one over on me. I became a victim blaming people places and things for how I felt. Alcohol made me feel comfortable. It smoothed the edges off. Made me feel like I was a part of again, where things did not bother me. I would not listen or take advice. An extreme version self-will run riot.

In my early twenties I was broken. I was crushed by this self-imposed crisis. I could not go on. I was never cut out for a crazy life even though I had some great times I wished for the end. When I arrived in AA I was beaten. My life was in the balance because I had not realised what I was suffering from.

Advice on Sponsorship

The Government continues to re-iterate the clear message that we must stay at home to protect ourselves, our loved ones, the NHS and those around us.

They have suggested to us through Public Health England (PHE) that :-

Only in exceptional circumstances should an individual sponsor visit a sponsee to provide 1:1 support at home. They should both then follow the same precautions as are required of essential services i.e. stay at least 2m apart in an adequately ventilated area, both wash hands, don't go if either party is showing any symptoms of the virus, don't visit people who are self-isolating because they have COVID 19 symptoms, don't visit those who are being shielded because they are highly vulnerable or if the sponsor themselves is from a vulnerable group.

It is good to know that our work with PHE is recognised in their concern for our wellbeing and their understanding of how we work.

Yours in fellowship and service

Conference 2020 April Dates Cancelled

Please read statement from Marc D the Conference Chair.

Dear all,

Over the weekend the Conference Steering Committee discussed the future of Conference 2020
given the current rapidly changing situation regarding the Covid-19 virus and its effects on society.
We considered many options but ended up with just three that we felt were either practical or required
consideration. These were :

1. Continue Conference as is, in April.
2. Cancel Conference and reconvene in 2021.
3. Reschedule Conference to a later date this year.

We considered that potentially there could be no overseas observers and CER Region members due
to travel restriction both here and in their home countries. We also considered that regional delegates
on mainland GB might also pull out with either fear of carrying and passing on the virus as well as
catching the virus once at Conference.

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Notice

Tradition 12: Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

The spiritual substance of anonymity is sacrifice. Because A.A's Twelve Traditions repeatedly ask us to give up personal desires for the common good, we realise that the sacrificial spirit - well symbolised by anonymity - is the foundation of them all. It is A.A.'s proved willingness to make these sacrifices that gives people their high confidence in our future.

From Tradition Twelve, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions
