Chris M. here in Snohomish, WA (Basically just a bit North of Seattle)

Sober since February 24th, 2010
Thanks to the steps!

I actually came in the rooms and stayed in the rooms since 1994, but the problem was... I only stayed in the "rooms". The solution is in the book, not in the meeting, but the meeting hopefully will get you in front of someone with a book! God, it took me so long to learn that and finally get through the steps! Thanks God and AA!

This is my first post!biggrin

I got sober September 7th 2015 at the Dicipleship House in Pompano Beach, FL (Northern Broward County, just north of Ft. Lauderdale)...101 Club and Pompano Beach Group holla! I like the beach meetings (of course) in all the BB fellowships and the colloquial "no s***" group"

Though I attend open beginners meetings regularly to reach out to the newcomer, I prefer book studies and men's meetings.

It is true there is no shortage of newcomers fresh off the plane from Jersey and Philly, I also look forward to enlarging my spiritual life through this digital medium. The prospect of reaching out and learning anytime work is getting to my serenity has me pumped. The ability for me to experience strength and hope from different perspectives and family members I would't otherwise meet is truly revolutionary.

See you around the forums phamily!

Hi there. I'm new to these forums. My last drink was October 30th, 1985 in Sherman Oaks, California. I was 18 years old and already near my end. I've had a number of home groups over the years; in California, Dublin Ireland and in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Just got out of my first treatment center. My insurance ran out. My sobriety date is June 21st. I thank god for all the strength he has given me so far. Im still very very new to all of this. Will be attending my meetings regularly. I am scared but also know that I am strong and capable of continuing with my sobriety. I CAN DO THIS. Thank you for letting me post :)

Hi REN1Love,

Please keep in mind, you only have top go through getting sober once! That is if you remain strong and follow the suggestions! I hope you will find a sponsor soon if you haven't already! I was glad to see you post, it shows that you're serious. This isn't rocket science, it's just not picking up a drink! I would also suggest staying away from any and all other substances, you have probably learned that in the treatment center! You have gotten the chance to learn to live a life that you will see is better than you could have imagined!

Good luck, I hope you have a great experience with what has saved many lives... me too!

Have a great night!

Jack D

Welcome to MIP ren1love, ... we're glad you're here ...

Keep in mind this works only with 'Total Honesty' and a strong desire to 'not drink' ... follow a few simple rules and go to meet'ns regularly, and you'll love life and help'n others ... ... ... ... it's amazing what happens to us when we 'cleanup our past' ... and change the way we think ...



Love ya and God Bless,
Pappy

Woo hoo! Just celebrating 33 years of amazing sobriety! Got sober December 10 1983. It has been the most wonderful time of my life even with the problems that came along. But these things happen to the Normies...so why not us? It's called Life. We are so blessed to be allowed to experience it, when I would clearly have never survived had i kept drinking. All praise to our 12 Step Program!

Hi...just celebrating 33 years of amazing sobriety through thick and thin. I got sober on the high seas while working the cruise ships! My first meeting was in Puerto Rico and that is where i found my sponsor at the dockside bar EL GRINGO LOCO. It proved that sobriety must not depend on outside circumstances...it must come from within us. Our surroundings or the people in them do not determine our sobriety. That said, the biggest detriment to staying sober is the old sandboxes, toys, and playmates. Eternal sobriety for all! Hugs, Miss VJ

First AA meeting on March 23, 1992. Haven't picked up a drink since that life-changing day. Thanks to AA, I began a relationship with a God I did not know and did not believe in and seven years in, I came to Christ in a moment that was a hail of glory that changed absolutely everything. I will always be thankful for what Bill W called "spiritual kindergarten". AA led me to Spiritual College, and I will never be the same. Thank God.

Got sober September 1, 1994, but didn't work the program from about my first anniversary to only recently. By the grace of God, I'm still sober, but insane thinking brought me back to the rooms. I'm grateful to the program and members of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Welcome Howard, ...

The important issue here is that we come to recognize insanity when it makes itself known ... then take the 'action' necessary to keep it at bay ...

I got sober in San Bernardino, CA. The first time for a year, the second time for eight months. My current sobriety date is July 8, 2002. I'm so great full that the same sponsor took me back each time and my home group welcomed me back each time as well. It was and still is so humbling to admit I have a problem and hang around with people who have the solution!!

Hi, my name is Joseph and I'm an alcoholic. My sobriety birthday is August 31st, 2014. Posting this to thank the good Lord for the peace He's given me. At one point and time, before I became sober, I had been out of work for about eight months, and remember wondering if there was someone out there on an a message board or an online post who would console me into believing that things would get better or that I could. A string of circumstances had compounded and was just emptily low. Later on, and shortly before getting sober, I was a binge drinker, and found an AA recording on YouTube ( "Kip C giving a powerful talk") and started listening to that between binges. After going to a few AA meetings in person, I traveled home to NC to visit family and had what I suppose would be called a moment of clarity. On the night of August 31st, 2014, under heavy temptation, I hit my knees and ask God for help, and it felt like steps just dropping to my knees. By His goodness only, I haven't drank since. The glory is 100% His, and zero percent mine, and I praise Him for hearing my repeated prayers (even those I said when I often had a hangover or just terrible anxiety) and thank Him for His mercy. Pray He'll do the same for you.
