Re: Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to all. After a dreary and cool Christmas Eve, it was a crystal clear day today, sunny and broke 60 in NE Texas. There weren't any Dark Shadows around here today!

Re: Empty Beer Cans on the Curbside!

I'm sure glad those airplane sized bottles aren't legal to sell in Texas, or there might have been little empty scotch bottle all along my routine routes! Seriously though, I'd keep a half gallon of my favorite libation bagged up in the toolbox of my truck. Then I bought a new super crew (4 door) pi...

I didn't see the Doors, ZZ-Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band or Crosby, Stills & Nash.

May The Lord wrap his loving arms around you, but more importantly, around the family of your friend. My condolences to you, Hawk.

Re: Counting the days/months/years

If I use time ala Tosh, it would be about three years since he rounds numbers, and technically, when rounding numbers, you round up at the half way mark. But, I'm just about a half a month over two and a half years, and that ain't half bad! I guess the first year I kept a pretty close track. But my ...

Re: In a very tough situation in life at 21 years old

Hello friend, and welcome. Before I say anything else, I've got to say that I wish I was 21 again and had the opportunity you is literally yours for the taking. By the time I was 21, I had already been asked to leave one institute of higher learning, tried to start over at a community college and de...

Re: Detoxing and awful smell

I'm just thinking out loud here, but when I was drinking, my wife repeatedly told me that I smelled horrible during the night. She said I smelled like scotch, which was my libation of choice. For the record, she complained too about me rattling the rafters snoring as well. Once I quit drinking, I st...

Re: 2015 International AA Convention in Georgia, USA

I was reading that list you posted where they talked about the weather in Atlanta. I remember one national industry conference I attended in Dallas several years back. It was in June. It was a blistering hot June, even for Dallas standards. People from Canada were just about to melt! I think the tem...

Re: 2015 International AA Convention in Georgia, USA

You should be able to get a room outside the housing block. Rent a car if your flying in and stay out in Norcross or elsewhere. You'd prolly come out about even dollar wise and get something that'll work for you.

Re: 2015 International AA Convention in Georgia, USA

Knowing how many people will be coming into Hot-lanta for this, and if you're planning on going, I highly recommend getting your room reservations sooner - like NOW - rather than later. I know it's basically a year out, but those room blocks set aside for AAer's will fill up fast! Case in point, bac...

Re: Sober 6 weeks

There is a lot of truth in what Lali relates above. Most specifically, recalling the worst consequences of a horrible drinking experience. Early on, and even now after stringing together nearly 900 consecutive 24 hours, I still think about how horrible that experience was, although not as often and ...

Re: Any alcoholics who stutter out there?

Welcome Matt! You've landed in what continues to prove to me to be one of the best places on the net! What an amazing life story and connection between you and Brock! I can't help you on the speech impediment other than to say one of my best friends outside the fellowship has a similar speech impedi...
