Anyone got something to discuss or share in here please feel free. The last one got shut down, so we do not wish to see that happen again. I am an AA member myself, and will break my anonimity as it is my own right to do so. I'm always interested in hearing from recovering or recovered folk. It is the one mind set, as I have told them all, that i can not get myself into. I know how it works, and i know all the technical details etc. and then I will be able to say "Yes I know what you mean" when someone says they can't have that one drink, even if they wanted to. That is the very reason we all need to be to-gether in the rooms of AA and wage war against this thing that would control our very lives. He quickly agreed I was indeed in trouble and promptly sent me to see a phychiatrist the very next day. The next morning after trying unsuccessfully to not drink, I phoned AA. You just never know how many folks you may just end up helping by being open and honest about what you have been through..is what I like best about this place....
The psychiatrist patiently explained what the alcohol was doing to my body. That night I took myself alone and scared to my first AA meeting. But being rigourously honest from the start, and adopting the 12 steps completely into my life, and learning how to live properly all over again saved my life. I'm a totally re-created and brand new woman who loves this life very much. I'm just curious about whether or not there are any 12 step type programs that don't involve so much of the religious stuff that AA seems to?
And while knocking boots with another sober person may seem like an ideal option, going out with someone from a meeting may be a step (or thirteen) towards disaster.
