Greetings fellows, just logging on for the first time. Been deployed here in Afghanistan for a few months and am sober and crazy. Meditation and prayer are part of the morning ritual, life is good. Just looking to hear from some sober brothers.

I was on active duty when I got sober, and at three and a half months was transferred to a duty station where I was the only (known) member of AA. It was suggested I use the Big Book and the suggester's Higher Power (I didn't have one of my own), and this kept me sober and reasonably happy until I got back to live meetings. Note, I was told to USE the Big Book, not just read it or study it.

Welcome, Semper!

I hope you're keeping safe in Afganistan; it doesn't look much fun over there.

Do or Die!

Too cool how that applies so closely related to a good attitude for me for looking at this program. Try to be "Always Faithful" and Do them steps or die, hoorah! (Or at least be pretty miserable for this alcoholic anyway). No negative implications there - just trying to work in the semper fi, do or die thing. :wink:

It is awesome to see you here jhwalter. Thanks for serving! Looking forward to hearing more from you.
