Home Recovery Strong Weave, Durable Fabric

Strong Weave, Durable Fabric

I have been working with the Voices of Recovery Workbook and my sponsor suggested I submit my response to the questions of January 8: “How would I describe my recovery tapestry? What are the program threads I’ve used to weave it?” (p. 4).

I am so lucky to have found this program. I would have to describe my recovery tapestry as tweed or burlap. Tweed appears to be a blend— a combination of several fabrics joined together to be stronger (and warmer). Burlap is hessian—what many sacks and bags are made of— bags designed to hold lots of heavy things like grains, potatoes, and the like. As I continue my recovery journey, I’ve become able to carry more understanding and ability to deal with what life has given me, one day at a time! Using the Steps, Traditions, and Tools (especially a sponsorship) as well as program slogans, has increased the value of my personal recovery tapestry. I am forever grateful for this program, which has given me a better outlook on life as well as a new body—60 pounds (27 kg) gone!
