Re: Military Requirement

While I was on the job today one of my co-workers whom was in the Army mentioned the situation at Ft. Hood! It was interesting to hear his take on various things not mentioned in media. Then we shifted gears to being on the clock and how to out wit leadership acting as if we were hard at work while ...

Re: Home Group in China

Good to hear from you on the other side of the world! I can say I spent 7 years in Asia and the meetings I would attend had locals and expats and others from other parts of the world. Greatest common bond is we are all in the same boat and the elements of drinking in access can wear on us sober folk...

Re: How to work the work in from the start!?

Funny looking at modern times in our world at how much we have available at an moments notice and or click of the mouse ect. I was on my job and I was able to meet up with a member of the program and good friend. We had some time to fellowship and catch up and compare and whatnot. We were reflecting...

Re: How to work the work in from the start!?

I would usually say 90 in 90 Days, but Covid has that messed up. Read the BB, Call your Sponsor, Have a pocket full of Sweets, Slow Down and look around you "Life is awesome Sober!" Keep up the Good Work, 42 Days is Great! I am and have been a huge believer of 90 & 90 because it provides a means to...

Re: Military Requirement

I'm running a shooting range and relaxing all day/night. SAMI? If you weren't aware you'll go through sober growing pains in certain periods of your growth. Having a person who can relate is most important as the answers can't be directly fixed as much as the learning via growth for the next challe...

Re: Military Requirement

You are in different era than I was and I can assure you that open kimono wasn't smart. Too many resentments toward me as I wasn't that team player I once was. I just didn't drink and rub elbows like before. I wasn't a ball buster when I became lead supervisor and I explained that if they continued ...

Re: Military Requirement

I often forget elements of early sobriety as it has been a long time; I guess the gratitude is the point of finding ourselves and keeping certain parts private while in the service is hard because of peer pressure depending on your grade. My point in this suggestion is this: Not to forget your last ...

Re: Spiritual sickness brought on by drinking?

Putting faith in the program that it is not perfect and yet it has saved millions of people all over the world. Left to my own devices I will drink myself to death looking for answers to my disease of alcohol. So I keep it simple and I believe that if I don't pick up that drink and I reach out to an...

Re: Military Requirement

I was in the service 13 years and I have been sober 30 years and it wasn't a walk in the park. I would recommend that if you surround your self with winners then you'll find attributes in sobriety that will really help in clearing your mind and not dwelling and or over thinking the aspect of being s...

Re: Military Requirement

Am I Sober? Yes, still 416 Days. This is an evening post to get my 3rd post in prior to the end of the week. Have I Had Any Exposure to Alcohol Today? How did I handle the exposure? Yes, a hard Seltzer in the fridge that is my wife's. I just closed the door on it and could have cared less. Did I Ha...
