Re: Was my sponsor unreasonable?

I recommend the GSO pamphlet on Sponsorship. This is also available to read online.

Re:I’m getting so much more out of AA than just not drinking

I have been attending AA for 6 months now, I have a sponsor & I am working the steps. My confidence has started to increase. I just wanted to post this to say that I am grateful for AA not only for helping stay sober but for helping me come out of my shell & do the things I once feared. Good for yo...

Re: The Hardline Approach

There surely is a middle ground to be found with just a little common sense, and I agree that the Big Book is a good example of that. Tough and straight forward where it’s needed, and encouraging and supportive in other places. I don’t think that means we should mollycoddle them and never dare ment...

Re: Questions Heard At Meetings.

I sometimes hear the statement ‘alcoholism is a disease of perception'. Can you tell me what this means? We suffer from a disease of the brain which directly affects the way we perceive things. Blaming everyone else for our problems is our way of taking the attention off ourselves. We lie to oursel...

I'm new to trying to get help. I'm not even sure that I can quit drinking. I really want to be able to limit myself so that I can drink socially as I am in college right now. My drinking really doesn't affect my classes or my jobs but I feel like this is just an excuse to justify it to myself. Welc...

Re: Questions Heard At Meetings.

In my experience, this danger is mainly when we are new to AA. But when we are following this program as it’s designed, our life is so good we don’t look back on our drinking days at all, except maybe when we meet a person who is in trouble, and let them know we have been there ourselves. We start ...
