Re: Addiction Paper

In this society with the electronic means it flows and it might even distract real recovery and how it works! When I look back ov...

Re: A real issue

This event is not unique and I know about this out of body experience with my drinking, anger and inability to control my addiction! Misery is optional! Meaning you will just get worse and it will be harder to stop. You can get help by getting to a meeting and finding out you aren't alone. I hope yo...

Re: AA In Maldives

I lived in Diego Garcia for 27 months back in the mid-1990's and besides the beauty of the atoll it was great that we had AA because it was a drinkers paradise!

Re: Speaker tapes

Strong arm tactics....... =biggrin Well the alternative is go back to what you were/have been doing and see if the results change with all of the knowledge you have on the disease of alcoholism. What I have learned in my 30 plus years sober is I control very little and I have to know my limitations ...

Re: Help me to understand!

I know we all hope and mean well and then the poster never shows up again and then "we" kick around the purposes and requirements and other 12 step guidance's that we live by. I am very to the point and at times not tolerant of foolish online string pullers. Today 31 years ago I hit the wall and cou...

Re: Help me to understand!

I believe going to a meeting in person is what you need as reality has a way of making you aware.

Re: When will I feel normal?

I look at your question as this for me! I will never be normal and or equal to those who may indulge in life's distractions. Because of this I have to learn to live in that world without participating in those things as I am not responsible nor can I control my urges. What have I've done in the past...

Re: Military Requirement

While I was on the job today one of my co-workers whom was in the Army mentioned the situation at Ft. Hood! It was interesting to hear his take on various things not mentioned in media. Then we shifted gears to being on the clock and how to out wit leadership acting as if we were hard at work while ...
