Why you ask am I writing a sequel?? I think because I have received so much help from this site and the wonderful friends I have made here. I'm getting a little protective. There are many paths to recovery and if you find one that works-go to it with all your heart. In my struggles I have tried different avenues and I beleive I have found the one that works for me. Not to say I may need to change that in the future. I kind of developed my own, taking parts of other programs and adding them together. I did try GA for awhile but that alone wasn't the answer for me. Maybe it wasn't the right time, not the right group, not the right setting for me. I believe in the program and it can be a life saver and may be the right road for a lot of people. It has been around forever so that says something right there. Here's the but, it is not the only avenue. The reason I am saying this is that some comments have been made that this is the only way and that anything else is just not going to work. And again, another ironic statement was made stating that even our talking back and forth on DS was not going to work??? Don't know about anyone else, talking and journaling HAS helped. I think that a lot of what we do here incorporates many of the 12 steps. So please, don't discourage people from seeking help on their own terms. Not one person here has the definitive answer. Take care everyone and know that I want us all to find our way.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
