Newby Here!

Postby cdogg556 » Wed Aug 03, 2016 5:39 am

Just checking in to say hi to ya all! My name is John C. I am 53 yrs old and I am a recovering Alcoholic/Addict that has 137 days today! I am working with my sponsor on my 9th step, going to 4 to 5 meetings a week, and from what my sponsor says, am ready to find sponsee's! That kinda scares me since this is all so new to me, anyway I feel great, better than ever and never thought I'd say this, but I actually enjoy A.A.! I guess after 30 plus years of trying on my own I have "Finally" become willing to try something different! Glad to be hear and you all have a great day! :D

Hi John C. Welcome and I am glad that you are here. Before AA, I didn't want what I had but I kept doing what I had always done, so I kept getting the same results. Go figure huh! I definitely wasn't ever going to figure it on my own. Glad I finally stopped trying and became open to suggestions.

Hey Layne, thanks for the warm welcome! Yea, it's amazing how long it took me to try to do something different and be Honest, Open minded and Willing to accept life on life's terms and accept people for who and what they are at that moment, anyway I am grateful to be here and be sober today! :)

Hi there, John C, and welcome. Glad you decided to try something different.

My name is Mary and I'm a sober alcoholic from California.

Congratulations on 137 days of sobriety! Already working on your 9th Step? That's awesome!

Looking forward to reading more of your posts in the forums.

Keep coming back....

Thanks guys, I also am looking forward to reading about you and the other members also, Mary I am in California also! Yes, my sponsor is kinda hard core, I needed someone that would not let me screw around and call me on my B.S. when I need it, I mean, he did give me a week to complete my 8th step, haha! We are having our annual pot luck at our home group this weekend and I just found out I will be leading the meeting, pretty cool exept he want's me to wear a tie! :shock: I don't even own one let alone know how to tie it! :lol: I just gotta remember, "if you want something different, then do something you've never done" :mrgreen: Well, it is good to be here and good to be sober, I hope you all have a great day! :D
