Re: Sponsor's Anniversary

She said that she hopes one day she can make me 1/8 as happy as I have made her. She's a great person and the perfect sponsor for me. Thanks everyone! Also, for the manuscript they had it at one of the meetings we went to in the literature section. I believe they also have it at the AA central offic...

Re: Sponsor's Anniversary

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. She already has a copy of the original BB manuscript. I ended up putting together a photo album for her and getting her a small card from the AA office. She seemed to really appreciate it. She's done so much for me that it was nice bringing a smile to her face f...

Re: Sponsor's Anniversary

Thanks Lali that is a great idea! I got her a nice card and small wallet thing from the AA store and also made her a little photo album. I hope she likes it :) I think a gift card to a coffee shop or something would be right up her alley as well.

Sponsor's Anniversary

Hello Everyone,

My sponsor's 20 year anniversary is today and I'm trying to think of something to get her. The AA bookstore is right next to where I work and I was thinking about stopping in there. Any recommendations?

Re: The drugs v alcohol debate

I disagree that people announce they are addicts to point out that they are different. I announce that I'm an alcoholic/addict because that is part of me acknowledging that I have no power over alcohol or drugs. And yet, curiously, nobody in an AA meeting ever - ever - announces "I'm an alcoholic/a...

Re: The drugs v alcohol debate

I disagree that people announce they are addicts to point out that they are different. I announce that I'm an alcoholic/addict because that is part of me acknowledging that I have no power over alcohol or drugs. It is also me acknowledging that drugs are part of my story. It is not to say I'm differ...

Re: SOBER 4 Months 2maro but I need more.....

Hi Carl, Congratulations on being 4 months sober! I will hopefully have two months on September 14th. It took me 7 months to get here. Sponsorship is a good thing. When I started out I asked a friend of mine to be my temporary sponsor. She got me through some really hard things. As I started to grow...

Re: Quick Question

Thanks you guys. I've been having issues with this therapist for a little while now and it sent up warning flags when she asked me about it too. I guess I will talk to my sponsor about it and see what she has to say but honestly I do not want to sign a release. As someone who has trust issues in the...

Quick Question

I have a question and I'm not sure if any of you have experienced this or not but thought it would be good to get some different opinions around it. I've been going t...
