Hi Rosiebee. I’m glad to see you posting what looks like a start over. You took a big step by coming back. I need to ask you if you ever decided to work the 12 steps. I ask because what the AA program has a program (12 steps) that leads to a spiritual awakening to God Almighty!!! Most churches are trying to do the same but it is not always clear how to do it. We have the steps that lead to conscious contact with God. It is miraculous and I don’t use the word miraculous lightly. Each AA meeting I see miracles sitting in beaten up chairs!
I know you want that freedom or you wouldn’t be coming back. I do much enjoy your posts and you have been an encouragement to us all here.
It’s a worn adage but needs repeating “nothing changes if nothing changes.” I want you to walk hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.
Keep posting and being a bright spot for all here on the forum. We all want you sober. Keep us posted.

Rosiebee, I’m happy to hear from you! I missed seeing you on here. You are stronger then you think and you can get away from the sneaky enemy (alcohol). I know you can! One day at a time for sure! You motivated me so much when I was starting over and I remember you were at over a month sober- you can do it again ❤️❤️❤️

hello my dear! i wish you well. it took me many times before I stopped drinking and, that's what made a difference in my recovery I think, not thinking about drinking. keep being strong, im glad you stopped by the forum

Thanks for letting us know you are still there. Everything is ok.
After regularly attending meetings at AA for over a year, I was still finding the need to go out and conduct my own private research. At that point in my development I wasn't completely satisfied with AA's definition of an alcoholic and deep within me there was still the thought I was different and that somehow I could learn to control my drinking. I would come back to meetings deflated and looking for answers.
My very patient sponsor pointed out that it was perfectly normal for alcoholics to drink and that learning to stay sober one day at a time, was the challenge.
So as I got on with the 12 suggested steps of recovery and left the research behind I began to find new purpose and meaning, one day at a time.
We are all in this together. Today is the first day of the rest of our lives.
