15 years

Post by avaneesh912 »

15 years yesterday. e-AA is and will be a great part of my journey. Was also happy to receive the text from an old friend. I used to carry many CDs to the meetings. He was one of the recipients.

SUPER COOL!!!

Thanks for sharing your Bday with us! I am not at 15 yet and frankly, that mental twist sometimes tells me that "maybe I overestimated this thing". Your focus on this topic likely saved MY LIFE more than once! I watch out for that "blind spot" just like you say and remember that I am powerless without a Power Greater.

BUT! Don't let it go to your head my friend! That Ego is always looking for a way to grab hold of us again! I have learned a lot through you ~ THANKS for passing it on!

*** And keep up the service work you do, it is priceless. :mrgreen: :D =smile :o :roll: :shock: :wink:

Thanks all. And Paige I hear you. I always got to be on top of this monster. Hopefully this covid thing will go away and normalcy will be restored so we could spend more time with the fellow drunks face to face and spread the message more effectively. There is a personal touch to it when doing it in person.

good to reflect what it was like and what it is like now.
Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.
