As most of you know I was worried about being wiccan and in AA. Well I did talk with someone and they told me to hide my medalion that I wear around my neck so that I don't get snubbed or that I don't get people wanting to "save" me. I may be repeating myself but I thought it worth mentioning again. Well after some heavy meditation and talks with my HP I have decided to stay true to myself and the rest be damned. I spoke in a meeting not mentioning religiion in any specific way but told them that I would not be hiding who I am (never mentioning wicca) my medalion would be displayed proudly on my chest and if after the meeting people had any questions I would be happy to answer them but I did not feel like I was being me and that it was putting my sobriety in jeapordy. To my amazement many people were very open and a gal about 75 said do you do a witches dance and I told her only in the nude and she gave me a hug. Worrying for worrying sake is doing me no good and until you know what is going on don't sweat it.

Being open-minded is essential to my recovery because the result is that everything does change. If you're new, don't use the...
