What am I missing? This started at the change of season from summer to fall. All summer I was at ease, now suddenly...

Re: Dragging my butt to the AA meeting

I did find it scary hearing stories where people were still suffering years later :( I have been clinging to the hope I will feel better in a month or so. I am feeling physically stronger now on day 3. I sincerely worked the steps and have experienced the promises as a direct result. Each of us who...

Re: Day1 arg!

Hi Change, Happy you found us. I remember vividly the anxiety and guilt I felt my first days of sobriety, the good news is it resolved itself when I began to honestly and earnestly work the steps. This will happen for you also as you work the steps. I have been alcohol free, sober and at peace since...

Re: Procrastination

I remember putting off submitting my medical bills to the very last day, if I didn't fax them by 5:00 they would not be eligible for reimbursement, approx. $3,000 and I was broke! I worked in an office and had daily access to the fax machine, yet I waited until the last day. In the middle of faxing ...

Re: My Mom & Alcohol.

Thank you for sharing Brock. It is a stark reminder of the dark days of alcoholism. I never want to forget, and that was the one concept I could never grasp "keep it green". I wanted to get as far away from those days as possibe. But now I see that remembering keeps me sober. My heart breaks for bot...

Re: Forgetfulness

Hello Jiro, Cogratulations on 1 week! I felt very much like I was tossed out of the spin cycyle of the washing machine at 1 week sober. I couldn't remember why I was doing something, where I was headed or why :roll: I began writing a simple 3-4 things to do list so I could refer back when I forgot, ...

Re: My first day, but not first attempt. 24 y/o

Hi Issac, Happy you found your way here. You have stumbled upon a group of people who know exactly how your feeling about your drinking. At first it was enjoyable, you chose to drink, now it's not enjoyable and you've lost the choice, you have to drink to feel normal. Is that about right? I was in t...
