Re: Step 2 Spiritual Guidance

I am in the process of re-working Step 2 and one of the questions I want to ask is how do YOU sense spiritual guidance? In the past, I often avoided actually asking for spiritual guidance in certain important situations like employment. Why? Out of fear I guess....fear that God's will wouldn't be t...

Re: My mother.

I wonder if I could share something with you all and perhaps ask your advice. My mother is an alcoholic. She will not admit to being one even though, in January, she spent three weeks in hospital with liver problems. She was warned by her doctors never to drink again or she will cause irreparable d...

Re: The Fitness Thread...

Does anyone run, walk, do yoga, lift weights, do zumba, rumba, boxercise, Insanity, T25, Extreme Chalean, etc? I'm currently getting back to fitness after a long lay off of six months due to injury, followed by a period of laziness and I'm quite enjoying it. I'm focussing on speed (I normally would...

Re: 2nd day after

The first day after drinking I hate myself and can't believe that I would give in again. I do stupid things that I would never do sober and I hate when I end up drinking again. It's not fair to my wife and my kids and I really want to stop. The second day after drinking all the negative feelings ar...

Re: Thank You button

There are many many great posts here, many just need a simple thank you, but we have to reply. Is it possible for the group conscious consider asking the web master if this option can be implemented ?
