    Looking for some help on the road to recovery for

    .xHi I just joined this website and am pretty new to this. I have been to like 3 meetings in my life. I am an alcoholic and I use cocaine as well. I have been struggling with this since I was 19. I am 32 years old now. But I would say I have been more serious about getting sober for the last 2 years. It seems to just keep going down hill or gets worse each time. I always thought there would be 1...

    I did it!

    Well guys I made it to an AA meeting. I was a little nervous but I felt so much better after I went. Everyone is a little older but they all have great insight and they loved how there was a youthful person there. We read some article and talked a bit. I def cried, im emotional but I think I needed to let it out. I will be going back tomorrow and I really am all about recovery. I also love this...

    Life is so f ing boring

I guess I will go to bed early ( again ) and try to...

    I have always recommended mindful meditation for recovery from alcoholism, even for the AA guys. Bill W said that for the 11 step AA doesn't have the resources to teach meditation. You must go outside AA to find a teacher.how-we-get-hooked-shenpa-and-how-we-get-unhooked/motivational-monday-how-we-get-hooked-and-how-we-get-unhooked/Book

    Enviroment

    1
        I noticed quite awhile ago that my environment has a profound affect on my sobriety, my emotions, my frame of mind, and so much more. When I'm in a good environment, I feel really generally good about things. It motivate's me and inspires me. It instills an aura of positivity with me, and feelings that life is good. It can also give me a false sense of reality if I'm not careful about...

    I truly believe my higher power has been watching me this last year and if I pay attention I will see it. I am not a true believer in horoscopes, but on my 9mo anniversary I happened to be reading the newspaper at my in laws house and always look at them for fun. I took a photo because it moved me so. It was just what I needed to hear at the time. It read...You are still forming a habit and it is...

    Why?

    Why is it that certain people can drink vs.people who can't? Is it genetic or how our brains are wired? What is it that alcoholics have that other people who drink don't? Just wondering the psychology of it all.

    Character defects as mistakes

    5
    One of my favorite parts in the big book is on pg. 67 where it says we "resolutely looked for our own mistakes."  The author calls character defects mistakes, and suggest earlier I forgive others for their mistakes.  How fitting for Easter Sunday!  I appreciate the story of Jesus, despise how mega-churches profit and judge others in the name of christ, and really am comforted when I think that...

    Feel torn ..........

    So after 12 months sober, avoiding triggers and risky situations like the plague, I let myself down by having two drinking sessions in the last couple of months - both resulting in hangovers from hell, downward spiral of depression, anxiety and even suicidal after the most recent binge session. My husband says he'll give up drinking to support me if I asked him too but I would never ask that of...

    Pregnant and married to an alcoholic

    my husband and I tried for a long time to get pregnant with no success. My husband and I needed to go through IVF to become pregnant. My husband was drinking a lot all of the time and was very ugly to me when doing so. He cheated, verbally abused me, and destroyed property while drunk. I couldn't stand it but I still stayed. I decided we needed to hold off on having a baby until we got him help....

    Guys can't cope with emotions....

    Is it true that alcoholics are pretty much alcoholics forever? I mean, does this apply to every single person? I ask because my boyfriend has an issue with alcohol. I"m observed on days and/or occasions where emotions seem to be too much for him to cope with or manage he reverts to alcohol. Also, when his back pain from multiple herniated discs is at it's worse he reverts to alcohol and more...
