Re: Had to get it out

Hi Leppi, keep up the good work. I don't know if I would be able to take being let go right now. It's good to hear from someone that can.

Re: New beginning

Hi Lucky, I'm Rusty and I'm an alcoholic. Good share. I can relate with a lot of what you shared.

Read your Big Book and come to some meetings. Try different ones. Maybe you'll find a group you like and even hook up with a sponsor to work the steps with.

Take care,
Rusty

Re: Day 3...and struggling

Wow, you got a sponsor already? That's great! It took me a while to get a sponsor because I always have a hard time making decisions.

Congratulations on a week too. Keep it up!

Re: The moment I have been waiting for

Hi LadyByrd, I'm happy for you. Keep it up. Would it be possible for you to get an online sponsor and speak with her on the phone using Skype or something similar? I go to f2f meetings and have f2f meetings with my sponsor as well as talking on the home with him almost every day. It's easier for me ...

Re: 4th Step Progress

I think what makes this part of the 4th step work for me is knowing that I need it or I'm going to die. I have no doubt in my mind that if I start drinking again I will die from it. I want this program to work and if I don't make it work I have no hope left. It's amazing to me that the people who wr...

4th Step Progress

Hi all, I'm Rusty and I'm an alcoholic. I'm currently working on my 4th step and I am here to report that it works. I just did what it says in the Big Book. I wrote down a list of people whom I had resentments about. I wrote a simple sentence or two about what I resent that they did. I wrote down a ...

Re: Had My First Drinking Dream

A long time ago when I was younger and didn't drink so much I had dreams. I was very depressed and I talked to a psychologist about it. I talked about my disturbing dreams with him. He told me that many professionals in his field believed that dreams were a way of our brains dealing with difficult i...

Re: two sides to a husband

i had to read the 'Family Afterwards' and understand their stand. They are also going thru a phase, the whole family is in recovery. He is probably spiritually sick and you can do nothing about it. You may suggest he go to Al-anon. Avaneesh is right. Al-Anon or some other group for codependants wou...

Re: Had My First Drinking Dream

Day 16 and I had a second drinking dream last night. My memory of it was cloudy, but I do remember drinking Bailey's Irish Cream. My dreams are so vivid now that I'm sober. I don't think I dreamed at all when I drank til I passed out. Have you started Step Four? I sure have Lee. I'm working with my ...
