Re: I need help..please

"My sponsor told me, sobriety gets harder with relapse BUT permanent sobriety is possible. I'm going to really have to work hard at it, no matter what!" Never EVER give up. I spent 25 years in and out of the Gates of Hell before I was finally given the gift of sobriety. If you go to a meeting...rig...

Procrastination

I need some help in figuring out what my message from my HP is in this behavior of mine. Sometimes it could be fear (like when I put off applying for a new job). More often than not, I can not see a reason. I put off little things like getting my kids uniform clean and set out in time for his game a...

Testimony to e-aa

I just wanted to take a moment to say how much e-aa has meant to my recovery. I was scared to go to a meeting in person but knew that I needed to stop living the misery that I was living. Coming to e-aa made it possible for me to open up about my drinking and get advise on going to a live meeting. I...

Re: Almost a year and feeling nervous

Congrats PaigeB! I wish I could go to the conference! I will post something as a testimony. If it was not for e-AA, I would not be here sober now!

Connecting to a HP

I am having a challenge feeling connected to a HP right now. I have tended in my past to put too much power in other people instead of God. I am having little feelings like that again lately. I am not in crisis mode or anything but I always love hearing how other people who struggled found that conn...

Re: dry for 7 years then it's all gone wrong ?????

One day at a time. We ALL have just today. Do not worry about the past, worry about today. I am so sorry for all of your loss. I had a hard year this past year, with lots of loss, and the program saved me. We are so lucky to have it! Don't try to do it alone.

Re: Almost a year and feeling nervous

Heya Catcar :) We got sober around the same time. July 5th will be my one year mark. I've had it drilled into me by my sponsor to not look at the length of time, to instead turn my focus to what I am doing within the program. He says if I do that, the birthdays will take care of themselves. He's go...

Re: Almost a year and feeling nervous

Thank you and yes, I did complete my 4th step. It has taken a few meetings to complete the 5th with my sponsor. I would have loved to do this all earlier but working 7 days a week did not help that happen. I made some drastic changes (with the help of my sponsor and a number of other women in the pr...

Almost a year and feeling nervous

So I am at month 11 now and all of a sudden am feeling the need to go to meetings or be with other AA friends constantly whenever I have free time. If I don't, I kind of break down. I feel like I should be more comfortable now than I was months ago but somehow, I feel less comfortable. Maybe this ha...

Re: I HAVE TO STOP DRINKING!!!!!!!!!!

I am so sorry you are having a hard time! I felt terrible in the start and went to a couple of meetings that were horrible for me. I kept coming back and found ones that helped me. I hope you find something that works for you!
