For Our e-AA Trusted Servants.

Are there any "rules" on quoting The Big Book, Twelve and Twelve, etc... I've looked around, but have not "seen" anything, (yet. :)

Thank you for your service.

Re: Higher Power

Truth told, my Higher Power started off being your Higher Power. I prayed to your Higher Power, I ask for help from your Higher Power. "Hello ann2's Higher Power, I'm a real alcoholic and I need your help today." After one man told me I could borrow his, I started borrowing a lot of other people's H...

Re: You just gotta laugh...

LOL A drunk, but not an alcoholic. :) Sounds like how I used to think. "I might drink too much, but I don't have a problem. I can stop when ever I want too."

I'm with Paige... Looks like he may be going to some meetings now. :wink: I also wonder if he'll wear that shirt again. :D

Re: My first meeting in 5 years

Lucky, I absolutely love what you have shared and had several reflections as I read. Thank you! When I was getting sober, if I was in a meeting that was in a nice place I'd feel un-worthy and like you, I did not like the dark, damp, bar like environments. Today, as the result of taking these Steps, ...

Re: i am alcoholic and all my friends drink

Great job on being 6 months sober. Any day I don't take a drink is a miracle. :) Everything you've shared are things that I needed to learn how to get through and the meetings, my sponsor, and the Steps were must for me. One of the things they suggested was not to make any big decisions until I had ...

Re: AA Actions

Good Morning :)

I could be wrong, and have been many times. This could be some thing from some of our anti A.A. friends or some of the stuff I thought when I was first getting sober when I heard people share "We must".

It did make me check myself. :wink:

Re: Made it another 24 hours

Hello MadameM I wanted to quit drinking long before I came to A.A., but I did not know H.O.W. I do believe the "compulsion" was gone after about 7 or 8 meetings = 7 or 8 days in a row, but not the "thoughts". The "thoughts" still came early on, and often. The "thoughts" don't come that often now and...

Re: Stress.. Anger..how to deal with it??

Hello and Welcome Damon, It is okay for me to "feel", since what I used to do was to drink to try not to. That wasn't working and that is part of why I'm here. When I came to A.A., I too came in with only a few family members in my life. (To be honest, two, the rest got sick and tired) Family could ...

Re: 4th Step Progress

I had to smile at the talk of our Sex Inventory. My sponsor almost had to rip mine out of me. It wasn't that I was bad, or any of those names I would call myself. It was just as stated here, it's to look at behaviors I have that can cause harm to others.

Great thread thanks!

Re: Had to get it out

Hello Leppi, One of the things I've been taught and have learned (some) is that working this Program will help me "walk through" the not so wonderful times in life, without a drink. I've watched people stay sober after the lose of a spouse, a child,and scary illness and jobs galore. Last month a wom...
