Re: Am I an alcoholic?

Thanks for all your comments I really appreciate you taking the time. For me the question of alcohol centres more on my morality - am I a bad person for going out to the bar and displaying actions which would repulse me if I was sober. I think the most difficult part for me, and I wonder how others...

Re: Romantics of alcohol

Someone in a meeting I went too almost 4 years ago now, once mentioned about how we romanticize alcohol. For some reason that has really stuck with me... and I'm so glad it has... as today, for some reason when the 'panic' of quitting sets in, my brain is sending me messages of a romantic nature of...

Re: want to go deeper

Hi everyone just wanted to check in and say I took the third step with my sponsor yesterday morning. She had me work on my own words to write a prayer, which I did, and we said it together in her house. She's asked me to say it again, morning and night, until I see her next to discuss starting on t...

Re: Day 3.... Exhaustion

Man, today... it's early, and I should be working... but feeling like I need to post something which might help me refocus... dread or exhaustion seems to be setting in. No, it's not a feeling of needing to drink tonight, or tomorrow.... but it more an exhausted feeling of the entirety of it all......
