How Alcoholics Anonymous Worked For Me.
After finding the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous listening to the many stories I knew that I was in the right place.
At last, I had found comfort after many years of being lost in the disease of alcoholism no longer alone, now I could get help.
Help was abundant from people from all walks of life whether a fall over drunk or a rock star they all had a message for me.
Alcoholism doesn’t discriminate, there are no social boundaries it will not affect!
There are many types of meetings and study groups within Alcoholics Anonymous, I preferred speaker groups because I could relate more often than not to the speaker.
Getting a sponsor was one of the suggestions, which I did, to help me stay on track and guided me on my journey to recovery.
Being mentored was invaluable, I could bounce stuff off my sponsor and he would call me out on my bullshit! He would not let me get away with anything!
His favorite saying “ my way or the highway “
I thank him now for all he did for me, his guidance and his wisdom has made me a better person.
Since becoming sober, I have had Cancer, Stroke, and a Heart attack, not enough reason to drink again.
In my past, any excuse for a drink…
The greatest thing about this AA program is you take it “ One Day At A Time”
Sobriety has been with me for over 23 years, AA works for me and for that I am truly grateful!
Recovery from alcoholism is not easy but well worth the effort, just to wake up in the morning with a clear head…Wow.
Remembering what you did the day before priceless.
