    I attended a face to face GA meeting today. I had been there in the past at two different times in my life when I lived in this area. The meeting opened back up a few weeks ago and I just found out. I am happy that I pushed myself to reconnect.

    Hi Mags, I think I understand about knowing when your ready and that you WILL do it when you are finally ready ( with help of resources , right?)

    odaat I remind myself that no matter how long it’s been since I put money in a slot machine /visited a casino: *there is NO new experience at any casino.

    Sometimes I hate recovery. Why??? Being in action was so much harder. Recovery is not easy, I guess that is why. It’s one day at a time.

    Self-pity is nothing less than an impulse to self-destruction. And this is its script: “This is the way you were made. These are the facts of your situation. It’s bad. In fact, it’s so bad, it’s impossible to do anything about it. And therefore, you are free from any responsibility to clean it up. Nobody can blame you for anything.” Self-pity…[Read more]
