Re: Justin Alcoholic

Stephen alcoholic Just to tell anyone checking these threads really fast...

It definitely helped me stay sober. The law required ...

Re: God/Higher Power

One man told me something a long time ago that I hold dear to this day. He said " if you believe in God, you can get this program, if you don't believe in God, you can get this program, it's when you think you're God, that's where you are going to have problems" Indeed ! Thank you for that. Congrat...

Re: Sponsorship after long time sobriety

Great topic and very pertinent for long time AA members. First, I would remind us all that a sponsor is not there to be your friend but to take you through the steps.

Re: Online group by select invite only

One of my local groups is setting up an online meeting because of the current problems. They have decided to make it by select invite only whereas other groups that have gone online are, making them available to anyone. I am not sure how I feel about that. Does this go against tradition 3 and 5? It...

Re: Hi I’m Matt and you know why I am here....

Long story short, as much as I hate to admit it, I earned my white chip today after a week long bender. I have the shakes, they suck. It’s chilly here but I am sitting here sweating. Think if I stood up I could vomit. My mind feels like mush. Taking everything I have not to head to the liquor store...

Re: 10th step

A further word of warning to all, particularly in the challenging days ahead : there are a few websites around claiming to offer AA Online Meetings but have no connection with Alcoholics Anonymous. Some may be genuine, but others may charge fees, while others will require you to download their softw...

When brimming with gratitude, one’s heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT. p. 37 I believe that...
