Thanks in advance :)

Re: Fourth Column Part 2

The fact that you don't care how many columns are used in step 4 is fine Niagara...I guess I'm more curious how many columns did you use?...Or more importantly...If you were guiding someone through this process...What your suggestion to them would be. Why? So you can tell me I'm doing it wrong? Or ...

Re: AA history forum

Hi Zimmy, Thank you for the feedback - I'm going to cross post this into the moderators area. I think it's a great idea. I agree. It's difficult to find answers as a newcomer, without finding ten different answers, and then wondering which one is right. I would advise if in doubt to refer to the big...

Re: Fourth Column Part 2

It's almost like...Maybe this guy is right...And all these years...I did it wrong. Better keep quiet. The emperors new clothes. Kind of strange. It's more for me, I couldn't give a monkeys if someone used 1200 columns, as long as they found the truths they needed to find through the inventory, and ...

Bus. Taxi. Walk. I've done all 3.

I would have walked 4 miles to get a drink, got to be prepared to do that to get well, too :)

Re: I'm trying so hard

Maybe this is me making excuses, but with two kids that need help with homework and a wife that already feels I don't spend enough time with her, it is difficult to walk in the door, shower, and leave. I know the responses will be "you can't help them until you help yourself", but I have to deal wi...

Re: New Beginning

Hey French, Good to see you made it back in one piece, if a little bruised and battered. I can't think myself into better acting, only act myself into better thinking. I messed about for many years with this disease. Suicide attempts, agoraphobia, years upon years of frustration and anxiety. Therapy...

Re: Here's to hope!

Hi Vince, welcome to E-AA I had a ton of reasons I was an alcoholic too. The main one being, I was in a very bad abusive marriage for many years. I was diagnosed with PTSD on the back of this. Other stuff too, but this was the main 'cause' in my head. Fact is, I believe now I was born an alcoholic. ...

Re: How do I get over the excuses in my mind?

How did I get over the excuses in my mind? For me, it just happened. That was my rock bottom. One day, those excuses and lies to myself worked, even to a small degree. The next day, I had quite simply had enough. I hadn't wanted to drink that day. I had what would have ordinarily been seen by me to ...

Re: Meditation rings

I reckon you're doing it right, but that your expectations of what you may expect to gain from meditation is possibly 'wrong'. Expectations!!! :lol: Hmm. A zen like state where nothing can penetrate my serenity armor. I shall possibly levitate, in a month or two. I shall be too enlightened to be em...

Re: My F*** mom

Hey momster Breathe a little. Sounds like you have a good resentment going there towards your mom. So, what does the big book say about that? Many things...I'll list a few Resentment is the "number one" offender. It destroys more alcoholics than anything else. From it stem all forms of spiritual dis...
