One of the best things for me, personally, about being in recovery is the simple ability to go do fun things with fellow recovering friends. For example this weekend a group of NRAPians are going to Stockton CA for the ACYPAA Summit. For some of us this is our first twelve step conference/convention experience. It should be quite an experience for all who get to attend. Things like this though are what make recovery amazing. When I was in my active addiction I had no freedom. I didn’t have the capability or desire to live life and experience all the amazing things out there. Thankfully I have gotten into recovery and am able to live and enjoy life. I am truly blessed.
