LifeRing is posting articles relevant to the Dry January movement throughout the remainder of the month. Here's a quick one with words of encouragement for all who challenge their relationship with alcohol.

Below is a clip from the  December 28th Recovery Elevator Newsletter article holiday sobriety and a pitch for Recovery Elevator's intensive REstore course for alcohol restoration written by Odette Cressler. This article includes the following paragraph that captures the essence of support offered in LifeRing meetings and in our eGroups.

If you are hurting and struggling this week, we are here for you. If you are white knuckling sobriety this week, we are here for you. If you are happily sober this week, we are here for you. If you are doing field research this week, we are here for you. No matter what, we are here for you, rooting for you and thinking of you. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! ... [W]e believe that we are all trying the best that we can. .....

Odette Cressler, It's the last week of the year!
