Re: 2nd day after

The first day after drinking I hate myself and can't believe that I would give in again. I do stupid things that I would never do sober and I hate when I end up drinking again. It's not fair to my wife and my kids and I really want to stop. The second day after drinking all the negative feelings ar...

Re: Meeting and more meetings

Hi Zimmy, I can understand your confusion as I was as well. The best way I can explain it is, Big Book meetings read a chapter in the BB at the meeting and then discuss that chapter, same for Step meetings. Speaker meeting are when a speaker comes from another gruop and shares his story, what is was...

Re: Hi. My name is Merl and I'm an alcoholic

Hi Merl, So happy to read your posts, they remind me of the begining of my journey. I had the same hope you have now and I had no idea where it would take me or if I would fail, I didn't. I stayed very close to AA and learned to live my life one day at a time, doing the next right thing and being re...

Re: I can't stop anymore

Welcome back Pat, I had to try on my own a few times to before I came back. I took all the suggestions offered to me this time on how it is done. I started reading the big book, the Doctors Opinion in the front of the book made sense to me, I felt like it was written about me. I went to meetings, ev...

Re: New to the Site

Hi Sunshine, I'm happy you found us. I hung around AA a couple of times, it all sounded good but it didn't really sink in for me that it could work for me, not until I hit my rock bottom, lost my job, my license and my diginity, my husband and kids were getting ready to leave me and still I drank ev...

Re: It's easy to be spiritual when things are good...

Hi All, I posted here a few days ago about feeling anxiety creeping in. I tried as suggested to meditate, get to the bottom of my feelings. I did this, but what really helped was reading all the posts here. I have learned acceptance again, I accept that life is not all sunshine and smiles just becau...
