Re: Dealing With Emotional Pain in Early Sobriety

My sponsor suggested that I get some type of physical activity to help deal with my overactive mind when nothing else seemed to work.

Re: Is my husband addicted to sponsoring?

Trust your instincts. Perhaps it is time to see a marriage counselor.

Re: Weekly Grapevine Readings (9/19/2016)

The our father prayer or lords prayer is a christian prayer. no if , ands, or buts, period. But, since I value the group conscience on this issue rather than my opinion, I chose not to join in and keep silent.

Re: Recovery without fellowship.

As Avaneesh912 said, might be time to start a Big Book meeting, and a step meeting in your area if they don't exist.

Re: New young alcoholic

Hello, I am a 22 year old female and have been drinking since I was 18. I know that seems young and a short amount of time, but I have been through many things I don't want to at my age because of alcohol. I should start my story before then. When I was young I was born as a twin. We both grew up b...

Congratulations on your year! I found that 12 Step recovery programs work much better when I work all 12 Steps.

Re: "Sober Since I Woke Up This Morning"...

They also seem to have mastered the ODAAT concept and realise the past is gone. Tell me more about these individuals? Are you one of them? Thanks. Tough to make a comment or j...
