Hello everyone, what a wonderful thing to be amongst such beautiful members of such a wonderful fellowship, I've been clean and sober by the Grace of God as I understand God, the fellowship of AA and the program for living one day at a time since the 5th of February 2006. Loving the life, so very much.

November 19th 2010.

But I have a special place in my heart for November the first as that was the day I knew that it had to end. I hit rock bottom that day and surrendered but it was a couple of weeks until I could get into rehab where I was introduced to AA.

First meeting/first exposure to AA was on May 4, 1997- at the Southside Club, in Dayton, OH.

My sobriety date is about eight months later than that- January 5, 1998. Sobriety changed and certainly saved my life.

And today is the first time I've ever joined a recovery forum online- it's so good to see you all.

Hi Michael from Kansa City Plll and Group 1. Sober today and from Oct 2, 1972. Inch by inch it's a cinch and yard by yard hard.

I like the idea I can cope hard or cope easy. AA says we tried to find a easier softer way but could not. I don't believe AA is supposed to be so hard that I have to cope hard.

The Joy of Good Living is a reality and when I'm sober Joy and Sorrow are sometimes inseperable.

Michael

Hi y'all, my name is Sam, I'm female, 63yo, and retired nurse. I got to AA through intervention on the job 9-21-1981. All I wanted was to get "these people" off my ass, just do the 90-in-90 and be more careful of who would know when I was drinking. Something happened tho! While going to meetings (somehow) the message was heard, and on day 91 when I thought I would be done with AA, I returned and for the first time in my life I said "My name is Sam, I'm an alcoholic". What a wonderful journey this has been. I will share my story on another forum here. I have been in online AA since May of 1996 just after my son committed suicide, I was devastated and reached out for help and the hand of AA was there for me. Thank God. My homegroup is the Westside Group, Jacksonville, FL. I am active in the fellowship and in service, I have had the same sponsor for 23 years....she knows the best and worst about me and loves me anyway! I look forward to exchanging ES&H with other AAs, and welcome any comments that might help me learn my way around here. First off, where's the coffee?

Hi everyone ... my very first post here.  My AA birthday is September 14, 1987; this September will mark 24 years sober.   A woman wrote a book called "It Must Be 5:00 Somewhere".  One Thursday night I sat with my usual drink watching the video of Regis Philbin interviewing her on his show and I saw myself.  That Sunday night I had my last drink, a martini, at midnight.

My Birthday is 1-4-10 After a night of heavy drinking, I got into a fight with my best freind outside a bar was arrested and had to go to court etc. This was the final sign that I could not drink like a gentleman. I had 5 years previuosly and also had to do more research. Anyways, by me stopping a bunch of friends family did so also. I have made a difference by example. My Favorite Meeting is PBP in Burien, WA.

Long-time lurker.
Sobriety date is 4 January 2009.  I go to regular AA meetings; this is my first post here online, however.  There is a yahoo message board I post to sometimes, though.

Hi all, my first day sober was 10 Feb 1980 or so my sponsor told me. I didn't think it would work so I didn't take note of the date, but the day came when my sponsor told my I had three months up - I couldn't believe it.

God bless,

MikeH

My new date is 10/12/11 The day I finally 100% admitted defeat within and realized that I have no power over this disease and to keep drinking will lead me to my death. I been to jails, hospitals, institutions, homeless and all thats left is death and there is no coming back asking for a second chance from that.

My father took me to my first meeting in October 1960 in Rochester, NH...  I thought it was great for all those old guys but I could handle it without going to meetings... I'm too young, I'm Irish, I'm a Marine, I had just gotten out of the Corps.  I had to learn the hard way... almost 9 years of hell!  I met a guy in a joint in Brooklyn that told me he was a drunk and had enough and was going back to AA. I told him I'd like to go... that was Dick C.  He was put there at that time to tell me he was done and it gave me the "in" to get back!  I got sober at the Midwood Group in Brooklyn on 4/1/69.

I don't have to tell anyone thats been around that this program saved my life.  I had been in an out of AA... I heard the music, but I never heard the lyrics.  I was around AA, not in it! This is a fellowship like no other... we come from all different walks of life with one common denominator... Alcohol.  

If you're wondering if it works... it does!!

Hello everyone! I'm new to the board. I guess you could say my AA birthday is Febuary 1st, 2010. Or at least that's my sober date and the time I started working the program. This Febuary 1st will be my two years.

Colin, December 9th 2009. Got released from jail, walked up the hill to Central Discussion. A place where I knew of people trying to stay sober, one day at a time. Stopped meetings for a year, recently started going again, because its not just about me. Greatful.

February 11th 1985.

I was 31 years old and my first 7 years of AA were in Greenville, SC.  I will forever be grateful to the friends I made in AA there for all of their knowledge, support, guidance and love that gave me a strong foundation for a life of sobriety one day at a time. 

I now live in Hamburg, NY and my home group is the Lakeview Group.

Today is day 40 of being sober. I got sober on 01/01/2012 the day I was admitted to rehab. Those two weeks were the best of my life and I will forever be grateful to the people there and AA. I have been coming in and out of AA for years and the longest time I stayed sober was over 8 years. Today I am very grateful for the gift of sobriety and intend treasuring it. Without my Higher power and AA it is an impossible journey.

After many years of trying to stop, my last day with a drink was 4th Dec 1994. The next day I went to a meeting at Bell Street in Dundee, Scotland and if I hadn't done so I probably wouldn't be alive today.

I can so identify with that. I know I have another drink in me but I very seriously doubt I will have another chance for recovery - this is life or death for me. My meetings are my lifeline and groups like this.

DOS for me was August 10, 2010. I took my very first step by going to an AA meeting in Bedford, Mass - they called themselves the Brown Baggers. It was a life changing moment which began my long sober walk out of the woods of Hell into a new world.

Stopped drinking at the Virtual Reality Internet Cafe on East Dundas Street in London, Ontario on December 1, 1997. Found my Higher Power in Meductic, New Brunswick on December 4, 1997. So far haven't taken a drink since and haven't wanted to take a drink since.

My new, and hopefully final sobriety birthday is February 26, 2012 (my actual birthday too) after a two day binge and waking up in a hospital room hearing a doctor tell my mom that whenever they see people in that condition they never pull through. Having no recollection of those two days and hearing that was my final wake up call. Thanks for the support.

Hi Kendra...

Glad to see you in here and I can see you have good reason to stay sober.  One thing I might add is none of us can keep you sober... being in here will help because it can be a positive experience.  I would hope that there are AA Meetings in your area... that is where you can learn what this program is all about.

In order to stay sober we need to change... getting sober takes some work on our part.  Find a woman sponsor and pay attention to what she will tell you.  Hopefully you and that woman will get along and the next thing you know you'll be on your way.

AA saved my life when I didn't even think I was worth saving.  There are no "must's" in AA but there are some "you better's"... it's a simple program for complicated people and the program has a way of straightening people out.

Good luck...

Jack D

My name is Gerrit and I am an alcoholic, my AA birthday is 18 May 2012. I relapsed after 2 months in rehap but have now been clean and sober since then, I almost lost my wife and two kids to alcohol. 

I am a member of the Lyttleton AA chapter in Centurion , South Africa.

Living life now 24 hours at a time... my prayers go out to those still caught in the evil grip of alcoholism... may you find the peace I have found.

It`s not easy but it`s worth it.

Thank you God for keeping me sober 24 hours at a time, that`s the only way I survive....

Hi Gerrit...

Welcome aboard for the best ride in your life!  We like to call alcohol the "Great Remover"... it will remove everything we love from us if we don't follow the suggested Steps of this program.  They are there to teach us how to live each day without taking a drink.  We all go through the rigors of hell when we first get here but that soon levels off and we start really enjoying life.

Good luck on your journey and I hope you'll stop in here to let everyone know how you're doing!  

Keeping it simple!

Jack D
