I didn’t want to think of myself as an alcoholic I just felt like I am young and in my prime just having fun before I settle down b...

Re: My home group & resentment creeping in

Thanks everyone. Some really great advice there. I did ask someone to be my sponsor but she says she doesn’t sponsor. She’s a good person to talk to, but yes I really do need to do the steps. The zoom meetings have been great and I’ve met new people from around the country so I’m hoping I’ll be wor...

Re: Helping Abusive Father?

I was living with my father who has always been an alcoholic, but it wasn't problematic per say, until he became abusive. Years later, it is very difficult to contact him because of what he put us...
