Re: Newcomers meetings

Re: Why do you want to become sober?

Aloha folks, Antonio here. Recently I was driving drunk and I could have killed myself. I had crashed my car in my subdivision.

Re: Is it normal to have massive anxiety talking at meetings

Re: Patience And Tolerance :)

Years ago I had a dog and a cat in my house. Both were adopted.
They were true buddies and a delight to watch as they teased each other. :D
