Re: Post Rehab - What just happened?

The way I see it this guy has been let off the hook for every bad behavior he has had towards his girlfriend and the ex. It's like this is his world and everyone else is just living in it. Why let him off the hook monetarily? As the father, he owes it to his children to provide some financial suppo...

Re: Post Rehab - What just happened?

and Sue him for maintenance for your kids Or, be an even stronger woman, do not react out of spite like this suggestion, and tell yourself you do not need anyone to help support the children you helped bring into the world. That you will go to any lengths for them including working 3 jobs. The obje...

Re: Post Rehab - What just happened?

The whole point of going to rehab was because HE wanted to come back home and I told him that's what he had to do. It just doesn't make sense. I'm having a hard time understanding why he wouldn't just tell me it wouldn't work, or that he needed time. Specially since I told him I understood! Even wo...

Re: IBU night time

My alcoholic brain thought this, "oh, cool. When I'm ready to kill myself, I could probably take a bottle of this plus acetominaphen and surely die." Tried it. What happens is worse than death. When too much of that sleep aid is ingested, the opposite effect happens. You become extremely restless, ...

I don't understand how this started to happen while he was "sober" Well you came to the right place to have some of your questions answered, welcome to the forum. A great speaker said once, rehabs blow us up like a balloon while we are in there, but the second we get out, it's like someone lets go ...

Re: slowing drinkign but problems

Glad you came back for an update Dave. Keep sharing, we are listening. I can identify with coming unglued on the weekends. When it came to reasons to get loaded, I had a million of 'em up my sleeve. "Such a hard and stressful week, I deserve a reward for tolerating so much crap." The problems piled ...

Re: Best xa speakers to listen to

^ I have also heard Kip's story. And moving, would be the correct word for it. I was floored when I first heard it. How he dragged his daughter around during his bottoming out. Most heartwrenching thing I have ever heard. Rip.

Re: 39 weeks_ new.dad

As the male, I have drank thru more than a few of my (then) girlfriends pregnancies and partied hard with my mother as well. I kept it somewhat together for roughly 7 years and then I came apart at the seams and started a pitiful and incomprehensible downward spiral that dissolved 2 families within ...

Re: Ew to AA and this site

Hi Mary. Welcome to e-AA please be wary of those that may come along and give subtle hints about going at this alone. Having a sponsor is priceless in that it makes us be held accountable. If I am not checking in with someone my self-will will eventually run riot and I end up in a position where I a...

Re: Choosing someone to do a 5th step with

If you are anything like me, I have found doing a yearly step 5 beneficial. Reason being, I can let things pile up and when I start to wonder why I feel blocked, maybe it's because I stopped being held accountable for my actions. Maybe you nailed recovery 1000% on your first step 5 and piles of flow...

Re: Anyone Attending a Meeting on Thanksgiving Day?

I have spent all major holidays in the rooms and am eternally grateful they kept the doors open for those of us that did destroy the house, car, all family relations. We had no where else to go! Thanks AA.
