      AA Thread April 16 - April 22, 2012

      Whew! I've had a busy few days! I did get to meetings throughout the weekend & last night. There was a lot of discussion about resentment, probably because it's the 4th month, corresponding w/the 4th step. I've been working on my resentments in terms of letting them go. I don't have a lot of them, but I do have a few that are hanging on. I must remember that I have to let go of the resentment. I don't have to invite the person over for dinner every Sunday or be his best friend. I just have to let go & let God. Mary

      AA Thread April 16 - April 22, 2012

      Pingu, I've been following your other thread and posted there. I didn't want to go to AA either, but am finding that it's helping me a lot! I'll try to post more when my wrist gets better -- I think I have carpal tunnel or something similar. Please let us know how it goes.

      Mary, I posted about resentments on our last thread......I don't dwell on them but they rear their ugly head now and then..........I don't think any of mine will make me drink, but it's good to be aware and discuss them now and then.

      Pingu: I hope AA works out for you. I couldn't stay sober wo/AA. I tried multiple times & always relapsed...the last time was particularly humiliating. That is no way to live. Good luck. Mary

      AA Thread April 16 - April 22, 2012

      catch: I've heard that saying. I thought I was someone who didn't need AA to stop drinking. I didn't even admit I was an alcoholic until I joined AA...even though I was doing a lot of crazy stuff as a result of excessive drinking. Then when I joined AA, I didn't think I'd stay & really become a part of it all. I didn't want to change my life that much. I think I had the idea that I might be able to drink normally someday. However, the more I kept going to AA, the more the program sunk in. Now, I can see that it's so much more than just not drinking. It's a lifestyle that I really like. The steps have given me a way of living that works for all things...drinking-related or not. Mary

      Am Back !!!!
      Yes Mary i agree....The steps have given me a way of living that works for all things...drinking-related or not. That is soooo true!

      My experience on monday had a chair to do for kimberley, there was a football match on, so it made it very hard for me to park my car the area. I did prayed b4 the meeting please dont let me get a parking ticket.. once i got into my chair i forgot all about my car. It was really nice to see kimberley again a very relaxing room and meeting. At the end of the meeting we did joke a little bit, about my parking. On my way back to my car there was a ticket fine on my window screen..... I tryed not to get to angry ( lol), anyway got home there was a letter for me to be opened, to my surprize my prayers were answered but in a different way, ( must rememeber never to give up Faith) got a cheque form the tax man so i can pay my car parking fine plus now i have booked to go away for my hubby B/day for 2days to FRANCE Saint Louis ( Lourdes) Really looking forward to the break, always wanted to go there.......

      Mary if am right am sure i read that you went there a few months ago?

      Have a lovely evening ALL :l

      AA Thread April 16 - April 22, 2012

      Hi Everyone,

      I went to my first meeting last Saturday night. I went because I felt like I needed to feel the energy of a room full of people on the same alcohol free page. I don't know much about the program, is it all spelled out in the Big Book? Most of the meeting was spent listening to stories so I didn't see much structure to it. I would be interested in reading further on the resentment issue, I normally let most things bounce off of me but there is some lingering resentment I need to let go of. I'm interested in the fact the program is a path to living and not just a way to quit drinking.

      Hello, everyone.

      Just wanted to say that I went to a meeting on Monday, then my women's group, and another meeting today. Had not been looking as forward to meetings as I had been previously, but I think sometimes, when you've been going to the same meeting five days a week, you start to feel a little bored. Not sure if anyone else has ever felt that way? But I always realize that I learn something important at almost every meeting, and it feels good to be with people who are like me and who understand me and want to help each other stay sober.
      Pingu, hope your meeting went well!
      TDN
