Hello fellow sober friends! I just came back to the program after being out for 8 years. So happy to be back! I didn't use this forum previously but have enjoyed what I have seen so far. This seems like a great way to spend some time when I can't get to a meeting. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of you and sharing our experience, strength, and hope. I now have 25 days and hope to make it 26. God willing! :D Thank you to the Founders and Moderators of this site for providing a way for all of us recovering alcoholics to gather, wherever we are!

It really is a great place. I have used e-aa many many times when I could not get to a meeting on a daily basis and sometimes used it as my 3rd meeting of the day! It is a great way to stay in constant contact with my HP - through my loving peeps in AA!

Thanks to all of you for a very warm welcome! Yes, Ann. Today is 26 :D

A.A has been in my life since I was 10 years old. Long before my first drink. I thank God it exists.

Hi Eric and welcome back. I'm Patrick and I'm an alcobolic. Congratulations on 26. A few years ago I was whining to another member after a f2f meeting and he stopped me and asked, "Besides this meeting, what have you done about your sobriety today?" At that point I realized that my sobriety is my respnonsibility. I can't just listen at a few meetings and hope it sticks. This is a program of action. So I tried to pray in the morning, read the BB more, call my sponsor, work the steps with him, go along on 12 step calls, chair the meeting, etc. Finding these forums was something else that's helped immensely. There's some good sobriety on here. I wish you the best. Patter

Patter and Mike, thanks for they kind welcome and thoughts. Some great points as well Patter. I look forward to service a lot. Right now I am hitting the Big Book hard again and I have a great sponsor. Steps up and coming. I didn't do the deal last time. Now it's God's turn because I am obviously unable to handle things on my own. :D
