I'm Gettin there

Since I've last posted, I have been to my very first AA meeting.  I have avoided these like the plague because I get high anxiety when in a crowd, especially men, I was pleasantly surprised by how welcoming and non-judgmental they ALL were.  This is encouraging and I am actually looking forward to my next one.

Congratulations! Your first meeting is always the hardest. I too, suffer from anxiety in groups of people but everyone at the meetings seem genuinely accepting and even happy to see everyone. Hang in there!
I\'m on day 33 this time around and this is always a danger time for me. Coming on here and reading about others and seeing strength here (including yours! :) ) is very helpful and encouraging.

thank you all for the endless support! I truly enjoyed my weekend and remembered it too! My son won all 3 of his hockey games, it is fun to watch him improve every game!
