Re: Questions heard at zoom meetings.

I was told by my sponser it can mean someone has more emotional soberity. You can have someone 9 months in with tremendous emotional recovery and someone 20 yrs and no growth perhaps because they’ve never done the work.

Hello & welcome Yes, I put on weight & was constantly told & reassured to ignore the weight and focus on staying sober which I did then after about 3 years I was very low about my weight & was told about another fellowship that deals with it. I’ve had 5 years in there and lost the weight & my shoppi...

Re: Is Introversion a Character defect?

Things people say

When I hear old timers say 'the longer your around the road gets narrower' please can someone tell me what it means.
I haven't a clue and when I hear it, it makes me fearful for some reason.
Thankyou

Re: How to Let Go

Hi Puppyears, yes being vulnerable was the key to my recovery. I wasn't aware in my first year that's what I was doing. But it was my saving grace, I just had to be me and get all my stuff out I sometimes cringe about personal stuff i shared but so what! I bet most don't even remember and it helped ...

Re: 4th step moral inventory

Hi Eugeni, Just a thought; you say your obsessing about the girl, I find obsessing is part of my alcoholism it's got a lot better the longer I'm sober but I find I can obsess about things that don't even matter to me. The only way for me to get it to stop at times is to share about it or speak to my...

Re: Welcoming the newcomer

I totally agree with the above comments. Seeing people with long term Soberity gave me so much hope & still does. It shows me this stuff works long term if we remain willing and keep coming back.
