TBD on Ning

I am alright now. No more drunken tantrums from my boyfriend who will become a x boyfriend if he doesn't try something different. I cant handle alcohol either, that's why I have not had a drink in 8 years. I don't miss it at all.

I used to go to AA, but because of my lack of spirituality I don't go anymore. The organization teaches a person has to have a higher power to stay sober and if they don't they are on a dry drunk or something of that nature. They believe a very few have done it without AA & God, and they must have had spiritual help to do it. I cant deny there are very good things about AA. I really liked the personal inventory part. Fear is such a motivator for unwise decisions. Alcoholism is a symptom of deeper problems which should be looked at and AA is a great place to start.

I guess I am writing this because for some people out there AA is not a option because of the God thing, but I am here to say you can learn to use the educational parts of the program without a belief in God. Once you get the tools you need...move on. There are many people who get sober without AA, but you wont hear about them in AA...They are not in their statistics, but we are here........... If anyone needs to talk to me....I'm here....looking out for the people who will not step foot into a AA meeting or people who will not go back, or people who are going, but having a very rough time. I don't know if I can help, but I can be a friend. We are neither perfect or flawed...OR...we are both perfect and flawed. Bottom Line....we are just human and we are all different....Hugs...K

I believe in womens lib. What I don't beleive in is cigarette & alcohol industry cashing in on everything imaginable to boost sales, and we went for it. Things have changed a lot, but people are still going to jail for marijuana...what a backwards world we live in.

Sorry about your struggles, but they seem to have made a very wise human being out of you. You have come a long way baby....remember that cigarette commercial? I think they were Virginia Slims. Funny a cigarette commercial using that slogan.......I came a long way when I quit smoking many years ago.

OK...Here is a non-religious alcohol/drug program which has possible meetings in your area and also has on-line meetings. I haven't checked it out thoroughly yet, but its free. I will call the meeting in my area tonight to find out if they are still running. There is also a 8 pm on-line meeting I want to check out....Here is the web-site..............http://www.smartrecovery.org/.....Sorry for running the board. I don't know how to get all the addresses in one comment box.
