TODAY IS MY 44th ANNIVERSARY
Permalink  
 


 Today is my 44th year Anniversary...I came to my first meeting of AA Jan, 12th 1974...It was a cold New England day in Marblehead Ma.. I would have died soon if I did not go to that meeting to warm up and get a cup of coffee. I was ignorant as to what AA was about.. .I was heading for trouble...Instead I was given a new life.. I am penning this in Prachuap Khiri Khan....

I am not scrupulously anonymous anymore...nor do I take any pride in longevity...I was not able to get to any AA meetings for 6 years.. but I did not, I feel detached with my AA daily routine . When I was in Bangkok last week I went to  two meetings... Didn't stick around for another meeting.. I could have I guess, if I wanted to go to a meeting on my anniversary.. but I didn't feel that was necessary.. so left  the city Tuesday...Why am I where I am...HAPPY, JOYOUS & FREE.. and in wonderful health.. The explanation is on my FACE BOOK page, along what sobriety did the past 44 years.. Tomas Sailor.  "it is what it is"

I only visit this site once a year on my anniversary the past several years, so any comments directed toward me will go unread....Why? my actions and opinions are too strong for a message board. It causes more harm than good. and frankly do not have the time.. nor any noticeable effect on my sobriety. AA works

Congrats Percival, ...

I do understand how one's opinion can upset newer members and just how we sometimes need 'kid gloves' to get our message across ... just wish you could share more here to show others how you did it ...
