Re: Another Friend Dead from this Damned Disease

Noels, do the family members you are staying with know you attend meetings? You might want to get a schedule of meetings for the area where you will be and commit to going once there. Please don't fall into the trap of "Well, I feel okay today. I don't need a meeting." Things/feelings can change in ...

Re: Another Friend Dead from this Damned Disease

Thanks for sharing their stories Lali, we learn from these. I thought about the three questions in the BB. I ask myself those 3 questions whenever I'm planning a trip or going out. One is, of course: "Am I in good spiritual condition?". I count being on pain meds as not being in the best spritual c...

Another Friend Dead from this Damned Disease

Thanksgiving Day a friend's husband died of a drug overdose. He and his wife had been sober about 4 years and were very active in AA. He went up north to visit family for the holiday but his wife stayed behind to work. He apparently hooked up with some old friends and overdosed Thanksgiving night. T...

Looks to me that the majority here agree that the 4/5 steps should be repeated when necessary. That's how my sponsor did it too.

Re: Sexual problems

Like Paige said, you could share in general at first. You might say that when you were drinking you did some morally wrong things involving sex. My guess is that almost EVERYBODY will relate to that.

Re: Anyone Attending a Meeting on Thanksgiving Day?

Good for you on being proactive about your recovery. I have never attended an online meeting but I'm sure there will be one here on Thanksgiving Day. Also, check your local meeting schedule to see when there will be a face to face meeting on Thanksgiving Day in your area.

Good luck!

Re: Leaving home group after 5 years.

The time will show, wether I am on the right way. thank you once more time. Yes, you don't have to m...

Re: Leaving home group after 5 years.

Is this just a couple of people or the whole meeting? Like I said, I wouldn't let a few people drive me away. I want to add that this might be something that can be discussed at a group conscience meeting.

Re: Leaving home group after 5 years.

I can answer one of your questions. I would NEVER let a person drive me out of any meeting, especially not my home group. What this man is doing is bullying and he sounds pretty arrogant. Also, his "group" of people sound cult-like to me. I wouldn't give him the time of day unless I were praying for...
