Re: New and like a deer in the headlights

Hello, Hartrate Welcome. You have started the steps. How about that? You have admitted that you have a problem. That's step one. Now as Reborn stated, just find someone that has good sobriety, and strike up a conversation. If you don't, find people here, or in the meetings you go to for support. Esp...

Re: Day 5.

I didn't realize how much sugar I was consuming before sobriety, but I know now.
Is there such a thing as Junk Food Anonymous :lol: ?
Everything in moderation is the best I can come up with.

Peace, Tony

P.S. I am literally going to see if there are anymore cupcakes left right now :oops: :lol:

Re: Alcoholic at 22 years old

Hi, Mike I have 30 years on you, and it sounds like nothing has changed from then to now. The idea of giving up what you have come to know as your coping mechanism can be confusing, and downright terrifying. But, in truth, your obsession isn't going to get you anywhere. At least, not anywhere you wa...

Re: odouls slip?

Not only that, but depending on laws in your area, a .02 can get you a DUI if you have a previous one.
In no way worth it.

Re: I don't know. hi

It isn't religion.
The only thing you have to commit to is, not drinking today.
That is on you. If you chose to ask for help from someone, somewhere, or something, it is of your choosing.

Peace (in a totally secular way :lol: )

Re: When to throw in the towel

Hi, Pasta I could get rip snortin' drunk right now, and have a great time, I can guarantee that. The only problem, for me, is I would come to, probably, at some point. And, pick up hating myself all over again. No thanks. Try getting to know yourself without it. That is the real you, anyway. Peace, ...

Re: being treated like a child by partner!

Hi, Barbera Same thing happened to me, in a way. I called to get a ride to a meeting, and at first, they told me there was no one available. The next day I got a call back telling me they had found a ride for me. When this person came to pick me up,the look on his face suggested, maybe, he was going...

Re: Sponsor.....or not?

I agree with Brock on this.
I don't have an actual sponsor, but have so many people to call, if needed, that I don't feel I'm missing out.
If you use the numbers you get at meetings, maybe no actual sponsor is necessary for you.
Whatever it takes for you, go right on with it.

Peace, Tony

Re: looking for advice

Welcome, rex Being selfish in the beginning is all right. I look at my situation as " If I'm not good with myself, how am I going to be good with anyone else"? As far as the alcoholic part, I was exactly the same as you. Even with all of the signs, so large they blocked everything in my sight, I sti...

Re: Questions from a beginner

For me, my first meeting , I felt like I was speeding down a gravel road at top speed, in the back of a rickety, old pick up truck. Everything was shaky. When I spoke my voice didn't sound like me. Not what I was saying, just shaking so bad that it sounded like someone else. I was fighting myself so...

Re: I'm pissed

You are correct, Booj. Meetings are almost always held in churches in my area (not in the chapel) , and no one has been converted into a religious zealot (to my knowledge) as a result. That said, this person might just have an unresolved bias, for whatever reason, against such institutions. Again, t...
