My first AA convention: from  N K

I had the privilege of being sponsored by Hope to attend the 7th annual convention.  The weekend was themed, “The Road to Happy Destiny” and saw AA members come from all over the world to celebrate their sobriety with each other in the beautiful surroundings of Kovalam.

During the weekend I attended meetings on the beach where I sat with fellow members, surrounded with the warm, flickering glow of candles, the sound of waves crashing gently in the background, stars above our heads.  I sat and listened to members describing their journey in recovery, the ups and downs, the joys and pains, the miracles unfolding within their very lives.  Incredible experience, strength and hope was shared and relished by all in a truly spiritual atmosphere which words simply cannot adequately describe.

There was a dinner and dance held where members really set an example on how to have fun in sobriety.  The highlight was probably when the live band started playing Red Red Wine by UB40…..the irony of that moment had everyone of all ages laughing from their bellies, a moment which everyone shared, a moment that reminded us all of the miracle that sobriety is, and miracle of being able to truly live today!  Thank you AA’s of Kovalam for this wonderful experience and a fantastic weekend, I will be back next year!
