online aa forums

I know this topic has been locked. Yet I wanted to say how thankful I am for this website. I live in the woods and the closest AA meeting is once a week about an hour and a half away. I have been before, yet it takes such a mental and physicle toll on me to get there, I never make it. I have said it...

Re: Surrendering to God's Will

They higher power theme is the only thing consistent in my recovery. Things constantly change in every environment and my trust in the higher power and the ability to surrender my own desires Is all that has gotten me throught the last few years. I love how this always comes back in discussion. I ne...

Re: The Lords prayer

This is a great discussion. For me it is all about the higher power and less about community. I know we all have our own walk and ways we got to here and now. But for me it is and will continue to derive me strength from the higher power. I know that everyone believes in something, It is just a matt...

Re: Lonliness after been through the steps

wow, heavy hitting this morning, I dealt with that big time. Lonlieness is such a heartbreak. When I quit drinking, I felt like I lost all my friends. Yet, the friends that were by my side proved to be my true friends. The ones who were concerned about my sobriety were the ones who actually cared. I...

Re: Primetime aa

This a mega confusing discussion. I started reading and it all was fine, then everyone started speaking to the degree of what was right and wrong. often according to the Big Book. as I like the Big Book, it is not gospel. It is a great foundation. I have not looked at this PrimTime thing, yet I imag...

Re: Judgement & Resentment in Sober Housing

gol darn, That sounds so rough, when I hit the sobriety scene I had family support. I can only imaging how hard it is being in an environment like that. Sounds like your being tough and strong. Reporting is not a worry because it is against the principals of the facility and directly affects your re...

Re: Our troubles

This is another heavy thinker. We can not control or blame others. Just trust in God. I liked the part about loaning things to friends, when you were too nice and caring and should never have loaned that out. This gets me because I am all into helping friends in need, but when it backfires it hurts ...

Re: Is it all in my head?

This is an awesome topic, the quotes are heavy hitters, this made me think all morning and reflect on the little things we say to ourselves that put us "below thought." I loved how each of the two quotes dealt in a way with self being and self thought. Giving all your problems to God in your life ta...

Re: Anxiety and Recovery

This is an awesome post. We deal with alcohol and all our other problems, but if we leave it all to God we will survive and thrive. I liked how you can recognize your own flaws and how they affect you personally and socially. I have a hard time because I am my own worst critic and my own biggest fan...

Re: My Greatest Fear

Geez, what a great post. This has gotten me through with out knowing it. ALL OR NOTHING. I had to give it my all or I would get nothing. I am used to this in life and in snowboarding. If I want to do a new trick or new jump, I have to give it all or end up with nothing. You can not half attack. I lo...

Re: Pain Medication

This is another great discussion. It is wild how we have tendencies for abusing certain sussbstances. I have a problem with alcohol, not with pain killers. I have been injured many times and have been put on all sorts of pain killers. I rarely finish my perscriptions, I do not know why I have an ove...

Re: Those 3 Magic Words...

Dang, This was powerful. Giving up knowledge is great. I was just thinking this at work the other day, "I do not know alot of things." And I should not be expected to know. It is a hummility thing to accept that you do not know. Being complacent with the term "I don't Know," show confidence in yours...

Re: Looking for God in the bottle

That was a great post and great responses. You hit a big topic for me today. I never replaced God with the bottle, but deffinately made the bottle more of a prority at times. As I keep paticipating in these disussions it makes me reflect on how much of a slave I was to the bottle. These posts and ev...

Go for it, That is great. I found a sober skateboard group and it is awsome. we meet we skate, we chat. Just like skateboarding, there are no rules and no judgment. We just enjoy the comrodery of skating and sharing the battle of the booze. Anything that can bring you all together in posative light ...

Re: I don't want to feel complacent but I do

You all responded so well. I live far away from meetings, I drove an hour to the closest meeting in my early recovery. Then a man at the meeting questioned my attendance and my participation. I never went back, I was completely turned off. We are not all the same, what works for you may not work for...
