Re: I think its rude !

When I have a resentment justified or not, the prescription is the same; talk it through, pray and turn my thoughts to someone in need. We're not in AA because we're models of spiritual, mental and emotional health. Live and let live.

Re: one-time pot use - relaps?

And the "medical supervision" thing goes out the window because... LSD? Really? - like LSD even under a Dr.'s care it might be safe? That idea is laughable. In the 50's little was known about LSD and its potential medical benefits. Drs. and other scientists conduct a lot of failed experiments. Hind...

Wasn't it a medically supervised 'experiment' for the treatment of depression? It's not like he hit the dope house and asked for a dime.

Re: Sponsor broke sponsee's anonymity by going to police

If we cannot or would rather not do this, we search our acquaintance for a close-mouthed, understanding friend. Perhaps our doctor or psychologist will be the person. -page 74 Alcoholics Anonymous Paige said it best. If I'm hearing a 5th Step from someone who has committed a crime and not been caug...

Re: I'm pissed

I think different things work for different people and they should be allowed to choose their path, what do you others think? Live and let live works both ways. You have to ask yourself why you are angry, pray for him if you do pray, take care of your side of the street if necessary and accept him ...

Re: 28 today

Happy Anniversary, Steve! Do you get squirrely as your anniversary approaches? It's been a long time since I drank, too. Early on, I realized it was not good for me to have an anniversary meeting, but I do think it's important to pick up a chip! In fellowship, Barbara D. To be honest, when the obse...

28 today

It's a gift from God to have started upon a sober journey this morning 28 years ago. I hope I never forget the dark, terrifying moment when I realized I lived through the night before. #BlessedBeyondBelief :lol:

Re: Falsely Accused

Tosh and Tommy nailed it for me. Decades of lying, stealing, cheating and abusing don't get washed away all that quickly. It took a few years before my mom stopped hiding her purse. Spiritual principals tough to us through the Steps and contact with healthy AA members show us the way to reconciliati...
