Re: Shouldn't be bummed out-but I am!

Good stuff Pete. If it was my AA group I would live and let live and stay the course. I need that to live. I think biting off on this other board, which is NOT essential to me in any way, might be one of the things I need to give up to focus on AA. I think these folks could learn a lot about organiz...

Re: A unique problem?

Hey Bru,
The longer you are sober, and employ sane thinking, the better you will be able to judge your current situation. Just like the program teaches, take it easy. Take it slow. Your job is to stay sober day by day, and day by day, more will be revealed. :) :)
