Global Steps AA Meetings


Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Deep breath...........Step One.

Posted by g on August 22, 2014 at 6:50 PM

I tried so hard to justify and control my drinking.  I so desperately wanted to drink like my normal peers.  My alcoholic mind convinced me that putting space between my benders and improving other areas of my life would somehow free me from being an alcoholic.  I would put together a month or two at a time balancing work, fitness and nutrition as my focus.  Without warning the alcoholic in me would decide I was due a reward of sorts.  The bender insued and I would wake up a couple days later in deep depression.  I have carried this vicious cycle up for several years.  I am tired, exhausted, and somehow relieved.  I know I am out of drunken corners to hide in.  Deep breath........Step One.
