My name is Jeremiah D Mitchell, Im an alcoholic

Postby jeremiahmitchell » Wed May 04, 2016 4:44 pm

Hi there, I wanted to introduce myself to the group. I have the longest amount of sobriety in my life at just over 10 months:) Part of my sobriety is cleaning up the wreckage in my past. I have 3 warrants and due to my honesty with the charges and the District Attorney, I have the opportunity to resolve all of these issue with out going to jail. One of then was over 25 years and they're droppping it immediately. For such a new sober alcoholic, I was having a hard time with these fears. I stayed strong, kept it straight with my sponsor and dealt with the problems the right way. Im very grateful that I''' be able to resolve these issues the right way. I tried AA before and my fear to disclose my past mistakes was definitely behind my failure to stay sober. My ego was running the show, not the program and my higher power.

I love AA. I love the fellowship, the community and "buzz" with everyone and I'm really becoming happy in my life. I feel content. I know I have a lot of amends to make and they will come in time as I go through the steps on this awesome journey. Really stoked to also know these forums are available.

Welcome to e-AA Jeremiah. Lovey post with lots of hope for the future in it, kind of stuff we enjoy reading on the forums. The site is a little slow at present, but there is a good bunch here with solid sobriety and it's good to have you on board with us.
