The End of my Addiction

Popping in to say hi.

Hello all. Firstly apologies for my absence here. For those who were around when the forum started I was one of the 'founding members' and helped a bit with setting bits of it up. I posted shortly after, having struggled with baclofen, that I wouldn't post while I was still actively drinking and not actually following some sort of plan to stop.

It has been a rough few months but in the end I went back to AA. I'm not a big '12 Stepper' by any means but the longest periods I have ever had sober as an adult were while attending AA. I don't have any time for gods or superstition, but I do get something from the personal contact an group support there I realise and that is what makes the difference for me I suspect.

Anyway I'm going, been sober a while and feeling OK about it. I am not even having to fight the urge to drink as luckily for now, it has abated, following a pretty horrible month or two prior to stopping.

Anyway I thought I owed people here who were around when the forum started an explanation.

Hoping all are well and succeeding at whatever path your chosen route alcohol free living might be.

Regards.

Hello Old Bean

Yes. it has been a long time and of course I think of you every time I read any page of the forum* - Well sort of....

So glad you are getting some AF time under your belt - I know how you struggled with Baclofen

Why don't you start a thread about your AA experience - I have never been and would love to read your take on it - At least it will be from a source I trust

Anyway, like I say, glad you are doing well and great to hear from you

Regards

I rather like the idea of a space where I can vent about the ups and downs of my AA experiences Bacman. If nobody objects I may well take you up on it!

 

Hoping you are doing OK!

Super, thanks

Finished my first year at the beginning of January so it is onward and upwards - Smoking has been a little more difficult without help but one step at a time. hay? - Got the GP to prescribe Baclofen so all's good in the hood

I for one would like to see your comments

Regards

@Mentium it's good to hear from you - I had been wondering how you were getting on.

A thread about AA would be interesting
