Re: Can a Person be addicted to AA Meeting.

There is no "rule" that couples can not go to the same meetings, and thank God for that! If that were the case, I would probably not be sober today . I guess it may not work for some, but it was the key for my spouse and I after spending years drinking together. Keep doing what works for you Josh. I...

Re: New bad habits

Hi Eran Yes! I struggled with disordered eating since my teens. The alcohol shut down a lot of that noise in my head, and consuming 1500 a night in booze didnt bother me too much :shock: When I sobered up, the anorexia ramped back up as something I could control ( food ), and my cigarette smoking do...

Re: I dont want to get up in the morning.

I wish I could hide from everyone, not see another person. Because I can't have a normal conversation, I can't laugh at jokes, I'm not interested in some funny video or news story, and I can't be a good wife or mom- all I can do is sit here paralyzed. I have no idea what to do or how to feel. It's ...

Re: Checking In.

I am sorry e bear. Please do not drink. It will solve nothing. Use the program and the steps to carry you through. We could all of ended up like Mark. Be the example. Show your family that this thing works. My prayers to you and your family.

Re: Totally new

My mom was a drunk. I begged, pleaded and did everything I could to get her to stop. I swore I would not be like her. I loved her and she was loved me, but she was sick. I turned out just like her. I went to AA, and learned how to stop and understood why she could not. You are not a hypocrite. AA ha...
