Special Thanks to Ann

Postby optimistic1 » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:46 am

Good Morning (at least on the east coast US).. I am brand new here and want to thank Ann2 for her lovely email this morning. I feel so much better having heard from her and am really grateful for the research she did in order to help me find a meeting in my area (!) amazing! and to get to this discussion board. I live alone and drink alone and am looking to start fresh and be more productive and happy without drinking and this is a good start. Just being able to type to other people is a comfort to me as I do tend to drink when I am isolated or .. maybe I isolate myself in order to drink.. hmmm. Anyway, I poured out my booze last night and feel like today is a new day. And thjis is a new connection! Happy to be here! :wink:

I'm awake now -- so frazzled! So many things to do! Ah, a nice cup of coffee and my sober friends :-)

Thanks!!!

Welcome. Ann is a wonderful example of what sharing means. You'll find many others like her in our program. You'll also find someone up pretty much any hour :) . I hope you keep coming back.
