I am amazed at what I am seeing on here today! I know I don't post very much...but I get on here every day and read everything you all write. SOmehow-it helps me. I can't make it to a meeting nearly as much as I would like...yet I can come on here and hear the same stuff I might hear at a meeting. I find it very comforting. Yes-I have found AA and the 12 steps and a Higher Power to help keep me sober. I know there are other ways-but for me...it has worked. So this morning-I log on and find this BATTLE going on. Unbelieveable. Isn't the whole point of this site to help eachother and have a place to talk!! Does it really matter that some have found AA..some have found a higher Power...some have found other methods? WHO CARES! The point is that we all stay sober and live our lives in the BEST possible manner? The point is that we have a place where we can come and feel safe enough to post our thoughts and fears without being attacked! I am disappointed in all of those nasty posts back and forth.
