Aloha my name is Michael and I have been a member of the EDI for 16 years off and on. Upon coming to the club I was seeking refuge from a storm of my own creation. From this facility I met many people of all walks of Life. And the theme has always been there is a shelter here in these dark days . I was met with Challenges to my world view and Laughter and many tears. I learned to be a productive member of this community by listening to those who walked this path before me. I am a work in progress and I owe it to the staff of the Club who kept the doors open for me and many others. I hope to continue to support the people who come to the club seeking a better way to live.
Always Grateful

I retired and started attending daily morning or noon meetings at the current EDIC location.  I volunteered to be membership secretary but got talked into becoming treasurer.  I have stayed involved in the Club since.   A geriatric specialist said that people who retire and don’t have a reason to wake up every morning, tend to not wake up for too many more mornings.  I still love my coffee in the morning and going to a morning meeting.  There are always many things to do at EDIC.   I am grateful that EDIC gives me a place to be of service and to meet so many people on the way to sobriety and make new friends.

I was not able to stop drinking or using drugs on my own, despite how much my addiction had ruined my life.  Treatment was the safe place that I needed to regain my health and my dignity.  I knew that I was safe there but feared I would relapse when the day came for me to leave that bubble.  Luckily I had tried to get sober before and knew some people who were living successful lives free of drugs and alcohol. I reached out to them and started going to meetings with them at the Sur-Del Easy Does it Club a month prior to leaving treatment.  I moved in with some of those sober friends and continued going to meetings at the club.  I then signed up to volunteer at the club, considering it a wise investment in my ongoing sobriety.  The sense of connection and purpose that I got from the EDIC were invaluable to me at the time.  My fear gave way to a healthy routine and a sense of community that continues to be an important part of my life today.  The club, it’s meetings, and the people who attend them were there for me when I needed them the most.  I have no doubt in my mind that I owe at least a part of my life and happiness to the Easy Does It Club and the people who work hard to keep its doors open.
