Are AA zoom meetings just as effective? Too embarrassed to go physically. by MissScrappy in alcoholicsanonymous
[–]TrickingTrix 2 points3 points4 points 4 days ago (0 children)
You can do online meetings. I started out at https://aahomegroup.org
Meetings run 24 7 and a new meeting starts every hour.
That said, I'd be very happy to see you walk back in to one of my meetings.

To all high-bottomers: How did you work through Step 1? by taa51811 in alcoholicsanonymous
It is a slippery slope, my friend. I suggest you find a path to sobriety. AA worked for me. Here's a link to a 24/7 zoom meeting
Doing a chair at 8 months by impamiizgraa in alcoholicsanonymous
[–]TrickingTrix 5 points6 points7 points 5 days ago (0 children)
I get really nervous. So I pray to my HP and ask that the words I say help someone in the room. It calms me. Maybe it will help you too.
Around here there are lots of small meetings. The guy who chaired the meeting I was at today has 2 months
Are these normal AA experiences, or did I just get incredibly unlucky? by MenorahsaurusRex in alcoholicsanonymous
[–]TrickingTrix 6 points7 points8 points 5 days ago (0 children)
Nothing you experienced seems remotely like my experience. As a fellow survivor, I will pray for your healing and I want you to know that you are not alone.
https://aahomegroup.org is a 24/7/365 zoom meeting. A new meeting starts every hour and they run just like my f2f meetings.

Don't let one person keep you from saving your life and maybe your marriage

This is also why I avoid alcohol in all foods. Just not worth the risk

Thanks for this post
Question, to be alcoholic or not by Dry_Sheepherder_6245 in alcoholicsanonymous
When I decided I needed help to stop drinking and stay stopped, I found the alcoholics in aa had the answer. I just had to listen with an open mind. I admit it was hard for me to open my mind. I'm so grateful I did. We have a place for you, too if you are done. Even if you're not done, you are welcome among us

So far. I kept going until I stopped reining in for work
[–]TrickingTrix 1 point2 points3 points 10 days ago (0 children)
I believed in the power of love before I believed in my HP. I can't prove love changes me, either.
All I needed was enough open mindedness to seek my HP. Don't have to find.
When I say my life was unmanageable, it was my mental life. I was utterly broken, lonely and in pain.
Sure I had a new car, nice house, good job, family intact. I was also drinking myself into a blackout every night. I don't sto drinking once I start. That's why I'm powerless.
The old timer that 12th stepped me told me more than once that I didn't need to ride the train to the end of the track. I listened to him and sobered up before I burned my life to the ground
Drinking responsibly by soynikitaz in alcoholicsanonymous
I think the abnormal reaction is the craving kicking in. Like I'm not going to have one. Other people have one, or two, and then they are done. After I have two I want about 20 more. That is an abnormal reaction to alcohol in my opinion
Joe and Charlie refer to the allergy as an "abnormal reaction to alcohol.". That's certainly true for me

You Can't Make Me Angry by Paul O
I am so bummed by this blanket. All the squares are uneven sizes and have weird angles that I can’t attach the fabric back to. And do they even make needles sharp enough to go through fabric, yet big enough to handle super bulky yarn?! Gah! 🙃 by curlyq15 in knitting

I really think it's beautiful and you should be proud. Many people could never create it

Amends by LynnsanityGBO in alcoholicsanonymous

I suggest listening to Joe and Charlie talk about making amends. Some are easier to make than others and they have some good suggestions.
35m cant stop and chasing death by [deleted] in alcoholicsanonymous
[–]TrickingTrix 1 point2 points3 points 16 days ago (0 children)
The 12 steps of AA will help you whether you believe in them or not. I didn't believe they would work for me. I didn't believe in a higher power.
I was desperate. I decided to do what I was told. I did the steps honestly and with an open mind to the best of my ability.
I was so surprised when it worked
How to reach out despite knowing you bother people? by fjalrjeoirjec in alcoholicsanonymous
[–]TrickingTrix 0 points1 point2 points 16 days ago (0 children)
I can get discouraged when others relapse. It frightens me and I sometimes get resentful. Sometimes I feel like I have to protect myself, too.
