re: Who will admit to be in recovery?
Thanks for sharing. That's sobering, if I may.

On that regret, I bet you suddenly and mysteriously snap out of that eventually, hopefully sooner than later. I believe that.

I've got it set in my mind, to get going with it at the beginning (that's what I'm thinking about right now): get right with God (spiritually), get right physically (regular exercise), and straighten up/organize one's living and work areas, that piled up and piled up during that bad time....then go from there. Looks good on paper anyway. It's all an intimidating thought. Those who know, know. Those who don't, I'm seriously very happy for anyone who doesn't carry that burden.

Amen brother. Good luck to you. I will say that the very instant I surrendered to the Lord, the addiction left my body. Although I do think about it, it is never more than a passing thought and temptation.

Dude, you were another thread a while back talking about your ongoing addiction. You seem so defeated and hopeless, you are losing everyting of real value in life. IT IS NOT TOO LATE! I URGE you to seek help, I know it is hard to tak the first step, but you must get busy living or continue to get busy dying. Sincere prayers

re: Who will admit to be in recovery?
10 months in, I go to meetings all over the country. Made it through the holidays for the first time sober. Burned many many bridges through the years and blamed them for it as I was hitting the bottle. Steps 4 & 9 were a bitch, but facing the music has been eye opening of what I don't want to be anymore.

re: Who will admit to be in recovery?
there is growing evidence (research is limited unfortunately) that a small dose of LSD taken under supervision in calm safe circumstances can help break the mental dependency on alcohol. It has to do with opening up your brain to a completely new and different set of stimuli.

changing the external and internal stimuli in and around you is very similar to changing your lifestyle, friends, hobbies, etc. there is much we don’t know about how the brain works, I can say with confidence though that if I were dependent on a substance, or person, or anything else and it was destroying my life, I would try anything to break that bond

Good luck to everyone trying to fight

Few year back me and my two buddies would go to NA meetings to sell meth to people. Had a good thing going for a while but I got greedy. I ended up meeting a nice girl and we dated off and on for a while.

But we all got mixed up with some bad people and her son got sick and she dropped me. Eventually she was shot and killed. After that I just had to get away.

I'm not in recovery but I have a brother that's dealt with it.

Glad you took the steps to start turning your life around.
One step at a time. Lean on your family and friends for support.

I wish you the best.

12/27/87 ... even after 32 yrs of sobriety,I still get the urge to get Fk’d up. I live one day at a time like others in recovery. I stay sober by sharing my story and helping others who are looking for a new way of life.

It's nothing like a cult. Totally voluntary and you can participate as much as you choose. Most go just to hear the stories and a little affirmation.

A A works for some when nothing else will, just like other methods work for some when AA doesn't. From r some people it's a life saver.

I couldn't get into the steps, but a few meetings were great and helped. I didn't continue it, but I might choose to drop in sometime again.

Most people go throughout several kinds of treatment or therapy, you pick up the positive in each one. In the end, it's how bad do you want to quit and what is your accountability.

We've all been there.

One time on backroads in lake charles I hit the back of a guys car at a stop sign. I had taken too many xanax and ambien, he gets out holding a beer.

Hitting a cop though, that's a hard one.
