Re: Our AA Members in Texas - Hurricane Harvey

Thank you Spirit Flower.

I am please to hear you are safe. When the Teton Dam broke they wouldn't let me go back for a several days either. Nothing like what you folks are facing though. Again, I'm glad to hear you are ok.

Re: Amends

Hi Cristy, I believe you have already started making your amends. When I was in my teens I boxed as an Amateur Welterweight undefeated for 2 years. I was at the Olympic Boxing Qualifying Tournament when a freak accident happened and I knocked my opponent out in 9 seconds. My trainer jumped into the ...

Re: Forgiveness

Brock, This is big on a personal level for me. I'm pleased you brought this post to the top again. What a powerful message. I can see it in my own life and I'm sure others can see it in their life as well, especially the ending with: "That’s the power and the grace of forgiveness. But let’s do it no...

Re: Our AA Members in Texas - Hurricane Harvey

Thanks Brock. I heard on a weather report Houston is expecting 50" of rain before it's over.

I still haven't heard from any friends and can not get through to my fishing buddy in Corpus Christi.

Re: Sooo, how exactly DOES someone stop?

I have never attended a meeting or reached out for help in any way. So I am definitely a newcomer. I don't think I have a severe drinking problem, i typically drink about 2-6 tall beers a day, 6-8 on the bad days. If i am forced to go a day without drinking, i get by without it bothing me to much, ...

Re: Felt like a moron after my share today

Duckdog and Steephills, I really appreciate your posts. You are not out of place at all. In fact you're in the perfect place to face these issues. Some things similar happened with me in my first few months of sobriety. The chairman that night was a wonderful lady named "Hope". I always thought Hop...
