Re: New Here

Don't worry about what people think about you going to an AA meeting. It's something that could save your life so who cares what people think about it. Quite right. What other people think is not an issue. I can't see where Jaz1 said he was concerned about what other people think. She said she was ...

Re: Had My First Drinking Dream

For me it doesn't bother me that I have drinking dreams. It bothers me that I like drinking in the dream. It bothers me that I let my worst enemy in my life again and even had the nerve to be happy about it. :(

Re: Advice needed

MDSMITH for years I thought like you. I don't have a drinking problem because my story isn't as bad as some of the other stories of alcoholics. So I kept drinking and my story ended up being as bad as some of those stories. You're so lucky that you can still quit drinking when things aren't that bad...

Re: pregnancy during recovery

If I have to love my dad or forgive him for the things that he has done to be well then I won't be well. He's pretty much evil and he doesn't deserve my love or my respect.

Re: pregnancy during recovery

I do believe alcoholism is genetic because my dad's side of the family has a huge problem with it. No it doesn't mean that a child I had would be an alcoholic for sure but I'm not willing to take the chance and ruin the child's whole life. I hope I never have children and that will never change. I w...

Re: pregnancy during recovery

I don't think alcoholics should have children because we're just most likely going to pass on the alcoholism to the children. There has to come a time where we say this disease stops with us and we'll never pass it on to more family members.

Re: Why should we trust God?

I like the God within idea and that's all I can offer right now. If the conscience is supposed to be God trying to help me do the right thing then I'm ok with that. I'm not some monster anyway. I try to do the right thing and I just happen to have a major drinking problem but even the times I drink ...

Re: Step 4

Why do we have to have resentments to be an alcoholic? I don't drink alcohol because I hate people or things. I just drink because I am addicted and I feel like I have almost no choice but to drink. I don't drink because I'm sad, mad, happy or whatever else. I drink no matter what I feel like and no...

Re: Why should we trust God?

The first 2 steps are easy for me but it's hard to give total control to God. I'm a spiritual person that usually does the right thing but I just don't trust God and I'm always paranoid when it comes to him. Bad things always happen to good people. Why can't I agree to do the right thing on a regula...

Why should we trust God?

The God thing is easily the hardest part for me. Why should I trust that he'll do the right thing with my life now when his great idea in the beginning was to make me born an alcoholic and a drug addict? I've spent my entire adult life and many years before that in misery because of my addiction to ...

Re: New and White Knuckling It

32 days sober is great! I'm half way there at 16 days. I can't wait until I get to 32 days and eventually 32 years. Good luck staying sober and having a great life. :D

Re: Best friends become enemies

The meeting tonight is Big Book study but I don't have a Big Book. Do they have Big Books at the meeting that I can use if I don't have one? I know this might be a dumb question. :roll:
