Giving AA Another Try

To be honest with my loyal 1.5 readers, I did drink on father’s day and my wife feels that I should attend AA meetings. I’ve always said, that AA and I never clicked, but I’m willing to give it a try again, because I really want to stop drinking. Maybe I didn’t like AA the first time that I tried it out, simply because of my mentality or better yet, the way that I looked at AA, the 12 steps and the higher power. I guess, it might have to do with me not believing in religion ever since I was a kid. I guess that what I am trying to say is, that I am willing to change, in order to stop drinking.

So yesterday, I had a little talk with a good friend of mine. He is a couple of years older than me, he is in his 50’s, but I have known him since the 80’s. He told me that unlike me, who drinks on the weekends only, he had been drinking everyday for a while, until his wife and kids confronted him and told him that he needs to go to AA or else, so he has been going to meetings for about three months. He asked me that since I want to get help to stop drinking, if I was willing to go to meetings with him? I said yes! So I will be attending AA meetings on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with him. Today will be my first meeting at 7:30 pm. I think that this time around, it will work, since I will be going with a friend.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!

    1. Not being able to believe in religion and then in my mind, associating AA with religion, was one of my biggest problems. I believe that by not continuing to go to AA meetings around 8 years ago, I set myself to fail. But this time around, I’m looking at it from a different angle. I’m more open minded and I have realized, that the only way that I can stay sober is, by hanging out with sober people, not the other way around. I I’ll never forget people and places. That’s the best advice that I have heard. :O)
