I've Never Clicked With AA

OK boys and girls, yesterday after I dropped off my little princess and her boyfriend at home from the airport, I did get to see my shrink Dr. C, and I have to say, that it was great. He was very happy that I have been sober for 1 month and 2 days… but… you know that there is always a big fat BUT… BUT… he asked me if I had been going to AA meetings, as he previously suggested. At which time I didn’t want my nose to grow, so I said no. Plus I don’t hide shit from him, because if I do, then he won’t be able to help my crazy ass.

You see, the thing is, that even though 8 years ago, I voluntarily put myself in a 30 days inpatient alcohol rehab facility in upstate New York for my weekend binge drinking, and I stayed sober for 5 years after that, I have never been able to click with Alcoholic Anonymous. Dr C knows this, because he became my shrink, right after I was released from rehab for good behavior… OK, after my 30 days were up.

OK, I’m not gonna go into deep, deep details here, but let me put it the same way that I put it to Dr C. My balls were getting literally irritated, every time that the same people, who have been sober for 5, 10, 15 and even 20 years, kept sharing the same old stories at different meetings, and started to cry, like the shit just happened yesterday. I mean, if I had been sober for so many years, trust me, I would have been crying… but from so much fucking joy, not sadness. So, I got tired of the same shit, and that is the reason why I never clicked with AA.

With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all!

Today I have Been Sober For 1 Month And 3 Days!

  1. You know I’ve never thought of AA that way. I hear of people who go to their meetings religiously and never thought that maybe they or someone would become bored or tired of it. I can see why it can become frustrating. It seems monotonous. Is there anything else you can do aside from AA? I have anxiety and my Dr a few years back suggested a program where I can call in a meeting. She said these meetings are mostly for AA and people who have grown up in an addicted type of family. I called once and listened to everyone’s story. I didn’t participate though. Just wondering if it would be easier for you to call in on certain days instead of sitting around with them. Congrats on your 1 month and 3 days sober!

      1. Oh good! Here is the website: phonemeetings.org

        It is known as Al-Anon Phone meetings. Hope it helps! I know this program also has physical meetings where you can go and walk in but being that you don’t like that very much, I figured the phone meetings can help ☺️.
