Re: Having a tough time with my sponsor

Just wanted to follow up here since you were all such a big help. For a couple month I tried directing the conversation more toward the steps and away from personal conversation (which felt like I was trying to control things in a way). Some days it worked and other days it didn’t. But I continued t...

Re: Having a tough time with my sponsor

I know you didn’t directly ask for advise, RE: the 4th step repeat to get rid of the big resentment concerning your Dad.

But actually making time for it was causing some anxiety and I never have a quiet moment with my 3 kids. But I made the time yesterday and am glad to have it started. I ab...

Hi there, Thanks for being here. I have 200 days today. I just started step 4 and I’m emotional and exhausted. Hating my dad quite a bit right now, I don’t normally dig all this crap up and historically would only rant about him while drinking. My B.B. meeting was tonight but I have to bring my kids...
