Classic rock fans

Not sure if we have any fellow classic rock fans. I like a wide rand of bands in the classic rock period. For simpiicity we will call classic rock from Elvis's first record(1954) to the end of disco/beginning of new wave(1980). So from 1954-1980 bands. Myself I like the following bands(no particular...

Off topic section

Can we have an off-topic section that we can talk about non-aa stuff(like music, movies, etc)? I am not sure if we did have one here, maybe it was worded ambiguous and I didn't noticed it.

The thing that I have is this network of Young People in AA from a bit of branch in San Marcos, and then to San Antonio, Texas. I have a new sponsor that I mentioned.

Overwhelemed in soberiety

I feel somewhat overwhelmed in sobriety. I have 6 months sober but I somewhat feel disillusioned, overwhelmed, slightly distanced(from non-Alikies/addicts/etc). I feel somewhat disillusioned with the Young People in AA here in San Antonio, Texas. I know people here on the forum had said for me to tr...

Re: Pass Regrets and Recovery

I usually feel depressed/regret/sadness feelings between the late afternoon to evening nights. Like this afternoon I went with my sisters, my brother-in-law to a restaurant. My oldest sister had an alcoholic drink and there was a bar in the restaurant, and other people in the restaurant drank. I fel...

Pass Regrets and Recovery

I wasn't sure where this topic in this forum should go but this thing has been bothering me a couple of nights for the past week and a half. I'm not sure if anyone has had some regrets/bitterness feeling at night in their own recovery. I would get a "trigger" whenever I browse other peoples' faceboo...

Re: Dysfunctional Family, and other bits

A counselor I had saw at the university told me that I can't do much to fix the dysfunctional family, but rather to fix how I react to it. I mean from a personal emotional reaction to it. The family situation has some conflict for a few days now. I try to avoid intervening on it but I'm not sure if ...

Steps 8-9

This had been steps that I stopped at my last sponsor in San Marcos before I went back to my hometown in San Antonio. I do have a temporary sponsor and I have been going through the steps slowly, but I recall the steps that I stopped at 8-9. I know Step 8 is just writing a list of people that I have...

My sponsor is 21 years old and has been sober since February 2012. I'm 22 and have been sober since February 21, 2014. Being young and sober is truly amazing thing to be, and to even sponsor someone is truly amazing as well. You can be young and sober and healthy and live a long prosperous life, its...
