A NEW YEAR: Can it be any better than last year? YES, if you use the TOOLS!
We've all been through this cycle before. Elul, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkos and Simchas Torah - carrying us to lofty and spiritual levels. How can I even think about "acting out" when I'm so immersed in Mitzvot and family responsibilities? I'm feeling pretty good about myself and may even think that I have finally "conquered" my disease.
Then, we put away our esrog and lulav, our boys go back to Yeshiva, we say goodbye to family and in-laws and then it's Cheshvan and we enter that long dry run until Chanukah. We're back at work, our Tefillos go back to "normal" and that lofty status we held just a week ago starts to fade. What can we do? How do we guard ourselves to stay sober and to stay connected? How can we keep half of our New Year Resolutions that we declared before Hashem? I want to stay clean! I want to succeed this Year!
The answer starts with realizing that you don't have to go it alone.
Maybe you're asking yourself:
Am I finding it too difficult to make a face-to-face SA meeting?
Do you want to be part of a fellowship of a small group of men who share your struggle?
Are you concerned about privacy and anonymity?
But you know that you would benefit by working a 12 Step Program.
GYE is proud to offer an In-depth B'Iyun 12 Step Big Book Study Group Lunch & Learn
Led by DuvidChaim, an experienced 12 Step Program Sponsor and Bucky for those who are unable or unwilling to make a face to face meetings. See this page for more info.
The Big Book Study Lunch & Learn (BBSGL&L) will use the traditional and proven format used by millions of 12 Step sponsors and sponsees who have; with G-d's help found recovery and freedom from their addiction.
The BBSGL&L will meet in a free conference call - 4 days a week, Monday thru Thursday at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time.
The BBSGL&L is a TEXT STUDY Chabura; based on the AA Big Book (you can purchase a copy here). We will cover 2 to 3 pages from the Big Book each day and WORK THE STEPS.
This program is a proven method of success! (Just ask the participants from the last Group!)
We will begin IY"H on Monday October 19th. This is a Program for men who are willing to make a serious commitment to finally find the freedom from their addiction; as literally promised by the Program.
Another "PLUS" to this upcoming session is that we will have an awesome group of veterans joining the Group who will be serving as "Big Brothers" - who will help participants keep up with the material.
"Keep coming back because it works if you work it - and you're worth it!"
