Red face Re: Bizi's thread:

Thank you split.
I appreciate your honesty and pointing out the differences.

They are huge!
I found the book store and ordered some cards and a packet grab bag.
I wish there was a group here where I live.

I primarily need the in real life support that I have been lacking.
My hubby doesn't think I am an alcoholic. and I don't have many friends.

I will meet up with my new sponsor tomorrow night at her house for a book study small group meeting that she holds every thursday at 6;30pm.
I am going to go and test the waters. Skyla seems really nice and warm and approachable....I met her tonight for the first time.
I will try to be more mindful of my posts.
Thank you again split.

Bizi,


I totally understand the need for IRL support. I hope it works out for you with Skyla. I think that it's great that she has a book study group. To me that means, she's serious about understanding AA's program.


I'm sorry if I came across as kind of heavy, I just wanted to caution you on the possible pitfalls of trying to work 2 different programs at once.

After talking with the sponsor we decided that I was not an alcoholic.
So I am not going to go to AA meetings nor meet with her again.
She was a very lovely lady and I wished her the best.

Bizi, that sounds like a truly strange conversation to me. The only person who can decide if they are an alcoholic is you. But to me labels don't matter. The question is, do you think you have a problem with alcohol? And is it something you want to stop? If you answer yes to those questions, you need and deserve help. I hope you can find enough support through WFS.

Thanks split,
There are other reasons for me dropping out of AA though I was barely in it.
I will PM you later. Have a great day!

I don't know if I've mentioned this in the past or not, but have you checked to see if there's a SMART recovery meeting in your city? It fits really well with the WFS program, and would be IRL support.

Unhappy Re: Bizi's thread:

The woman from NAMI carolyn, canceled on me. Last night, we were going to go to the gym and walk on the tred mill and have a lite dinner afterward, but she backed out.
So going with jeff was my option at the time. I should have just went to the gym by myself.
My resolve to not drink went out the window!
My tool box is empty.
sigh

I wish I had more friends.
I am going to go to church tomorrow and maybe see an old friend, maybe I can mingle with her or someone else there. It is a Unitarian fellow ship.
My only real friend here has asked us to go hiking tomorrow. We usually drink with them but they are dieting right now so maybe we would just hike and that be all we would do with them...
