Question of the Day
Be a part of The Journal! In every issue The Journal asks a question. Submit your answer for the “Question of the Day” and it might be chosen for publication in the next issue. Writing a story about S.L.A.A. recovery can be a healing experience for you, a meaningful experience for others in the Fellowship, and an attraction for suffering sex and love addicts to our program.
We are now accepting short shares and articles for the next Question of the Day:
According to Dictionary.com, Pink clouding, or Pink Cloud Syndrome, is a phenomenon many recovering addicts experience when they first go into recovery. When pink clouding, they feel a sense of euphoria that's then followed by a crash once reality sets in.
Have you experienced a “pink cloud” in recovery? If so, please describe your experience and how it impacted your recovery. How did you maintain your connection to Program/spirituality?
You can answer the question via this Google Form!
The due date for submissions is Sept 15, 2021
Download the PDF flyer - please distribute digitally among your meeting members during this time.
Please write a response to the QOTD for the next issue of The Journal. Submissions can be given to your meeting’s Intergroup Representative, brought to the Intergroup Meeting, or email your response to: firstname.lastname@example.org
