Day 1. I'm so exhausted.

Postby dudeistmom » Tue Jul 23, 2013 5:37 pm

finally went to a meeting today. I have been to about 1/2 dozen meetings a few years ago, never said a word, never identified as an alcoholic. It literally took me until yesterday to be able to say it to myself with conviction, and today I said it aloud at a meeting.
i'm tired, but excited.

Good deal dudeistmom! I hope you can keep attending meetings, meet a great sponsor, and get to see how cool recovery can be! You know, we are all kind of a mess, but AA brings us a message that heals the mess, one day at a time if we can accept it and put it into our lives.

Hope to see you here some more, too, so we can share experience strength, and hope. There's a lot of good recovery shared here....

Keep coming back!
