Welcome back Tas! (HUG)Tasman1 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 25, 2020 12:15 pmI’ve been sober a week too!
I’ve been in and out of AA for about 18 years, managed to get some months and years of sobriety. The last couple of years I have not been good to me. As predicted, each relapse has brought a new low. I am lucky as still have husband, house and job and have not been in trouble with the law.
It’s nice to be back on this forum, it is a good in between meetings/catch up with sponsor to remind me.
Thanks for still being here
We don't shoot our wounded so keep coming back - no matter what you might think others think! You sound alot like me... I know that when I found this Forum and came back every day to read and write in Daily Reflections, my LIFE changed. I was really thinking more about AA and the way my disease acted - throughout the day. That is how I drank, so that is how I work my program. I used to joke that I was the most prayer atheist anyone might meet! LOL, but seriously ~ I guess I became sort of a "contemplative" - like a lonely Poet. hahaha. But it became even more true as the years have gone on. And though I may not be "in prayer" like a monk, I have become quite practiced in meditation and in taking my own inventory. Heaven Knows that I spent most of my years blaming others all day everyday and the switch I have made to contemplating AA is a kinder gentler Me.
I hope you can find what I have found.
