Hi All!

I'm back from vacation and still sober. I didn't do very well on my sugar problem. But I'm back on track beginning tomorrow morning. It's good to be home and I hope that I get to know you all better now.

My signature says it all: In 1990 I got sober, in 2000 I quit smoking, and in 2008 I am giving up my food addiction. I'm confident that I don't need food in that way any longer.

Aquariangel - WELCOME! My sobriety date is 1/17/99


Sadie - nice to see you coming out of hiding...

There's another team for "friends of Bill W" - started by Dana-Banana for some of the reasons you mentioned. "Recovering Alcoholics II" is private so you need to send her an e-mail if you'd like to join. We do a lot of the more serious (private) AA sharing there.

This team is still active in case there are newcomers to SP who find us and want to check it out.

Mary

Hey Dana, My name is Tina-Marie and my goal is 7o pounds and I am starting at 211 and goal is 141. I see that ypou split your goal up into little parts and I think that might work for me. How do you do that? I have 8 years of sobriety and my weight has been fluctuating for 15 years-my hightest has been 217 and lowest-during my my addiction was 116. I have become discouraged over time because I can never seem to keep it off. Hope it works this time. Thanks for listening aquariangel.

Finally a topic that brought me out of hiding! LOL! I have to admit that I felt a little put-out by some comments on other threads about the people who hated meetings and didn't want or need AA, etc.,etc.,etc.! I'm more than willing to say I know my own lousy attitude of late took such comments more along the line of somebody saying my baby is ugly, instead of the live & let live viewpoint I usually try to cultivate.

And I DO have a crummy attitude lately, so I haven't felt I had much worthwhile to share. I'm not making any progress on the weight loss I wanted to make before July (trip to Ireland), and still facing employment and financial uncertainties. Add to this intense busy-ness during my daughter's last 2 weeks of school, and mostly I'm a basket case.

But I'm glad to see people saying they are FRIENDS of Bill W.! I don't know what I'd do or be today if I hadn't found the Program and Fellowship! And only people who have been IN AA (vs. attending meetings they hate) understand what I mean. In a more tolerant view, if others find what they need someplace else, well and good. This is where I found what I needed to face what life brings my way.

Funny, it was this week 23 years ago that I walked into my first meeting. Although I just have the 7 1/2 years sober now, it's been one heckofa ride!

That's all I have tonight, I just wanted to share on this one!
Sadie

If not now, When?

You two are so sweet. I just want you to know that I'm going on vacation tomorrow so if you don't hear from me, It means I don't have access, not that I don't loves ya! I'll be back by the 29th so if I can't get WI-FI for my laptop, I'll write again then.
Blessings, Cyndi

Hi Cyndi, welcome!!! I"m Dana and I'm an alcoholic. I've been sober since January 15/06. I walked through the doors to AA for the first time on January 25-so 10 days sober. I was sooooo scared and soooooo sick. I don't remember much from those first few months of attending meetings 5 days a week, but I knew I belonged in those meetings and more importantly at that time, I felt I belonged. I love my AA family and can't put into words how grateful I am to the program!

Hugs,
Dana

Thanks Dana-Banana I think I would like to do that. I've been sober for quite awhile but still I need to be reminded how I got here. I'm Cyndi and I'm an alcoholic. I'm still working on being happy, joyous and free, one day at a time. By the grace of God and the fellowship of AA I've been sober for over 16 years. I'm now asking for God's grace to help me recover from my sugar and food addictions. Today I am a grateful alcoholic and with that I think I'll pass.
