Re: 4th step moral inventory

"Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." Good judgment, a careful sense of timing, courage, and prudence---these are the qualities we shall need when we take Step Nine. After we have made the list of people we have harmed, have reflecte...

Have 19 Years of Sobriety and this is how I did it.

And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation---some fact of my life ----unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is sup...

Re: Recovery without fellowship.

Well you are here so you can say that you now have recovery with fellowship. It might not be f2f kind but it is a place that you can feel safe in. We have a lot of forums here that you can take advantage of. A lot of members here are reaching out for help just like you. So you are not alone in the j...

Re: New to the forum

Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to his simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. ...

Re: i might have permanently damaged myself i'm scared

You have been given some very good suggestions here. But it will be your choice if you want to follow those suggestions. It's your health and your life. The internet is a good place to find information, but it does not replace seeing a Doctor on health issues. And one thing that would be very import...

Re: Step one- is it too easy

Most of us have been unwilling to admit we were real alcoholics. No person likes to think he is bodily and mentally different from his fellows. Therefore, it is not surprising that our drinking careers have been characterized by countless vain attempts to prove we could drink like other people. The ...

Re: Advice for a Recovering Wiccan

Who says you have to mention what Religion you belong to or say you do not believe in God or whatever. This is a spiritual program not a religious program. And is one reason some members us Higher Power instead of God. You do not have to mention anything in what you believe, just the spirituality th...

Re: New? Do you make them feel accepted?

Well Jack I cannot speak about Chat. But using the excuse of not being able to communicate with someone in chat for buying alcohol and drugs is just BS. You had another venue to go to, which it seems you did. And guess what you are getting responses. The Forum here is 24/7 where chat now only is ope...

Re: Take what you need...And leave the rest.

One thing that you need to know is that everybody is different in how they end up in AA. The one thing that is common with all members is that they drank to much and wanted to stop. Not everyone has the same story to tell about how they got here. Some will benefit some because the experience was abo...

Re: Struggling and don't know what to do!!

Ok I will tell you it not alright. But it is worthless for me to tell you that. Only you can do that with a desire to start doing the right thing. You say that AA isn't your cup of tea. Well for a lot of folks they felt the same way, but found out that they were wrong. And then starting their road t...

Re: Newbie dealing with too much.

Two drunks got together fell in love, and got married and had a very good time together, until the law came calling and one of them went to jail. This is just part of my story, which I do not tell very much. Not because I am ashamed but it is a long story. I was the first to get sober, and of course...

Re: overly lost

Well you didn't like your first two meetings. Well I went to a meeting thought that I would learn how to control my drinking, you know moderate it. Oops was I wrong. So did not return. Another oops, down the road I learned that hey these people were right. For a alcoholic there is no controlled drin...
