Re: Checking In.

I am sorry e bear. Please do not drink. It will solve nothing. Use the program and the steps to carry you through. We could all of ended up like Mark. Be the example. Show your family that this thing works. My prayers to you and your family.

Re: Totally new

My mom was a drunk. I begged, pleaded and did everything I could to get her to stop. I swore I would not be like her. I loved her and she was loved me, but she was sick. I turned out just like her. I went to AA, and learned how to stop and understood why she could not. You are not a hypocrite. AA ha...

Re: Higher power

Hi Jordanmarie, Please dont quit quitting. Coming back here and tell on yourself is big. Many do not have the courage to do that, and never make it back. For me, I had to want to be sober more than I wanted to be drunk, and was willing to do whatever it took to stay away from that first drink. Call ...

Re: Fear, I have no Higher Power

Im sorry that you are struggling highcost. Medical stuff is scary and the waiting is the worst. BUT, it hasn't happened yet. I had a medical thing (life threatening, not cancer). I had to try to stay in that day, and just act as if everything was going to be ok, then deal with the outcome when it ca...

Re: Step 12 - Keep it Simple

Thank you Wiganman. You helped this alcoholic today. I identified with everything in your post, and it prompted me to revisit my progress. Sometimes I forget how much I have grown and reading that was a good reminder =biggrin

Re: struggling to get back in the lifeboat

Welcome e bear. Isn't it funny how things work out without us even trying? I love it. =biggrin. Your post resonated with me hard. I had so many attempts and failures for years. AA is the only thing that worked for me when I finally surrendered and was willing to do whatever they said they did. As an...

Re: Cheapest Big Books?

I am glad I asked this question here, based on price and discount GSO appears to be the best, and the profit goes back to AA. Thanks Brock. Im glad you brought it up too. Our group never shakes out even on our big books, so with the reduced price, we stand a fighting chance if someone needs one and...
