Re: Kombuca synergy drinks contain alcohol

I wasn't sure if I screwed up by posting this or not. After I posted it said I was banned permanently for spam. Wasn't sure if I did something wrong. All I know is i can't drink alcohol in any form or the phenomenon of craving could be activated. I am allergic to alcohol. If I had a peanut allergy I...

Kombuca synergy drinks contain alcohol

My friend called all worried, with almost a year sober, his wife brought home a kombuca tea drink and he had some. Discovering after it contains some natural alcohol. Supposed to be .5 or less so sold as non alcoholic. However there are articles online saying some pulled off shelves had 3.5% alcohol...

Clash of clans

Anyone who plays clash of clans, I started a new clan for us recovered or recovering alcoholics. Search clan name Staying Sober if interested. Probably start clan wars when we get enough people.

Re: A year sober but struggling

I might have got off topic a little. I would work through all the steps thoroughly but keep it moving. I wouldn't want to take a year on the steps, could be why you're sick of talking about the same stuff. I've heard some founders did them in a day. Don't rush through either. Everyone does this at a...

Re: A year sober but struggling

Step 9 was very important for my continuing sobriety. It felt great making amends, however I didn't have any negative responses either. One or two could always go south. When nothing else works, work with another drunk always does. If everyone left AA after getting sober there would be no AA for new...

Re: District phone service and rides to meetings

Hey Paige Usually it's people wanting meeting info or wanting to know about the program. I don't really want to pick up perfect strangers. It's different if I've met them at a meeting first. We recommend them to meetings in walking distance or taking the bus. I think some people just want to take ad...

District phone service and rides to meetings

Hey everyone, Wanted to kind of take a poll. I am a phone captain for my district's information line. On a few call backs I've had people looking for rides to meetings. In my district this is something we don't really do, or at least not any more. I'm not sure on the reasons, I'm pretty new to phone...

Re: Alcohol Free drinks

Completely agree. I have an allergy to alcohol that can be triggered if any gets into my system. I won't even take nyquill . Look for Joe and Charlie big book study audio online. The talk they did for the doctors opinion chapter is great. Talks about why we crave and how are body processes alcohol c...

Re: Don't know why I'm here

They are suggestions. We have the choice to do them or not. If we dont we probably won't stay sober. I think if they said you must do this and you must do that , they were afraid of running off new people. Remember we are sensitive alcoholics. It probably works better if we say why dont you try this...

I had them all downloaded and listened to them in the car on the way to work. But I tend to space out at 5 am when driving. Im sure I heard it and just forgot.

Re: New to e-AA

Welcome Stella
This is a great place to come in between f2f meetings. When at work and I need to ask something or I just need to do some reading. The only bloating I had was when I first sobered up I was on anti craving med called Campral. Gave me wicked farts

Re: Relapsed... Again

Even just calling the number might get somebody to go grab some coffee with you until the next meeting.
Hang in there
