i really don't post here much but i've got a burning desire..this is about a post i recently have been following concerning addicts in a/a..i am a member of a/a and was told my only requirement for membership 'was a desire to stop drinking'...from what i read here seems its not..but im not relinquishing my membership and sponsor because of this..i am an alcoholic..im also an addict..i work steps im n/a and a/a..i sought fellowship and support in both and am thankful for both for saving my life..for it is at risk if i drink or do drugs...i have been very welcomed and supported in both groups here where i live..i hope all in my place have my the same opportunity to experience a sober drug free life..it should be a newcomers right when asking for help..if i were turned away there is no telling where i would be today..that is all i can say to a group that feel im not a pure alcoholic and therefore cant be helped or benefical to another alcoholic..i have the same disease and am fighting for my life with it..what more benefit is that to someone struggling..other opinions?
