why AA is good
I think A huge [problem in this world is that people aren't secure enough to talk about their emotions with one another. AA is a place where I've found that I can go and talk about how I feel and also get insight into others ad how they feel(nobody judges becuse they all have worse problems they're dealing with). It's really healing. My father in law who is very spiritual and emotional came to a few meetings with me and has picked up the big book as his new spiritual helper. It's amazing what you can learn from junkies and recovering addicts. I like going to a group that has a lot of Native presence(Indians for you Americans) because their understanding of the world is so uplifting.

where you meet yourself,

I'm currently at week 3 of a 90 days, 90 meetings. It was awesome today, there were 5 babies at the meeting and we ended up talking about how much we love children.

Frankly, AA removes one crutch and replaces it with another. The fact that they tell you you aren't in control just exacerbates the already inherent weakness in the addict.

Good for you OP. I've dealt with addiction of family members. The one who went to AA is doing great. The one who thinks she's above is not.

You're an idiot. No one is in control of anyone aside for themselves and even then most people are lost, battered, soulless, wandering sheep.

The princoples in AA are thousands of years old and they work based on honesty and spirituality. That's why only the first step mentions alcohol.

Alcohol and drugs are not the problem, they were a temporary solution. The problem lies in ourselves. AA has very little to do with alcohol, you will learn that if you get honest and seak conscious contact with God as you understand him.

Congrats OP! It will get even better. Work the steps (in order) with a sponsor and remember, you don't have to be there for one year or on step 4 to be helpful to others.

Just showing up, with a smile, on time, and sharing at meetings is a good start at being helpful to others.

I'd wish ya luck but luck has nothing to do with your recovery. Keep it simple, one day at a time and always ask God to make you useful to HIM. Look for how you can be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

Stick with the people who are doing the deal. People who are working the steps with a sponsor.

Thanks, will do. This guy is an oldtimer in the program. He's very humble and won't take credit. He will tell everyone his sobriety and serenity is a gift for having God in his life and for working with other AA's. He'll probably give that chip to the newcomer. :-)

Gotta run. I'll check back later....

"One" step is all anybody will ever need...Jesus Christ!

Whether someone is drinking or using...or *not* drinking or using...all under the 12 step program are *still* in bondage to drugs or alcohol!

Lose the bondage - God *HEALS*!

No bondage - *One* step!

good luck and congrats op!

take in all the suggestions but do them in your own time!

do not let anyone rush you through the steps, take in what your sponsor suggests, but also be as honest as you can if you disagree with them, especially about the whole speed of the matter ... it is about keeping sober one day at a time, therefore do not listen to anyone who says you need to do the steps in any given time ... you take it slow, keep it in the day and listen to your heart, much love and luck to you!
