Starting days of my journey as an AA member, identification of my problem took me to feelings changing day to day like, I have to attend meetings, it's compultion for me, I can't live with out program and finally it turned to natural process, Today all those feelings naturally within me and I am on journey. Now It was that "I can only lead my life by practicing what I am thought in the program in ONE DAY AT A TIME and has become part my life. Day to day journey was different experience. Every experience teaching and taking me more deeper into program. In my journey I am able to meet such a wonderfull persons who were living in the program. They were "Legends" for my vision and were my HP choosen messengers for me. Here I am sharing about another such "Legend" who turned my direction to LISTNEING.

When I am running my own business, many times I use to see one of my frend taking different people to some ware from a near by hospital. One day I asked him. He told me little about program. I felt my friend was doing good social work (as we both were participating in AOL organisation cources). Later came to know what he was doing. He was in AA science long back
The first day of my AA meeting: An old man came to me and said "I am....now I am having dental doctor appointment, we will meet tomorrow same time." He explained me about HALT and said that he did as his earlier friends did. I am surprised and felt " Idon't know him, why he was telling me?."
Second day we met. While returning back from meeting he said, " if possible can you stay a little while babu." Something comfort I felt to stay as he said. He introduced me two members 3 months elder than me in program. From that day we 3 simply connected and our relation was comfortable till today.
Reached very comfortable. First time! met co member who triggered and helped me in quitting tobaco. Hugged him heartfully.
