Re: I think I need a new sponsor

I do not think you sound like an ingrate Tasman. It doesn't sound like she is really sponsoring you, as much as being your friend. Its perfectly fine to tell her you are no longer a good fit. My sponsor always refers me to the steps, and that was and is the sole focus of our relationship. I can't af...

Re: Crashed and burned

I've been wondering where you have been e bear. I'm very glad you made it back, and appreciate your honesty. I've just celebrated 4 years a couple days ago, but started the program almost 6 years ago. I blew it too, so I know how hard it is. You had a couple hard licks handed to you, and then did th...

Re: My home group & resentment creeping in

Hi Firo, I have experienced the same thing, and I truly thought " Dang, these people are cold!". The sad truth is that suicide is not uncommon in the rooms of AA. Easier, softer way I suppose.. Perhaps some saw it coming and had detached. I am a soft soul and it hits me in the gut every time. Some s...

Re: Modem Step 4

Fear was the first thing listed on mine.

IMHO it doesnt matter if you write it or type it. Most important is that you just do it as laid out in the book with the columns. I would probably still print it out to go over with my sponsor and then burn it.

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...
