This is Where I should have Started, huh?

Post by Frankie »

Well this is where I should have started. :) Please forgive, sometimes quickly, sometimes....

Hello, My name is Frankie and I am an Alcoholic. By the Grace of God/Higher Power, I have been a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and sober since 2/18/05. I do my very best to do what I was first taught to do and add to that each day. I know with all my heart that if I was still drinking, I would not be getting ready to celebrate a 50th birthday. 50 looks really good to me. :D

Thank you for this group! I hope to be of service, warts and all.

Hi Frankie! I love hanging out with people in this program who are service oriented! Keep coming back!

Good to meet you Lali, leejosepho, and Paige!! Paige, service is a part of my recovery. I can always tell a difference when I've started slacking, my problem is "balance" :wink:
