I have a bad habit of asking people how old they are. The reason I do this is because I feel that with age comes wisdom. I was reading one of the admins post about not giving out personal information. If I have offended anyone my apologies. How do you find trust?

trust doesnt have an age put on it. length of recovery doesnt have a trust limit on it. trust is earned through action.
i personally like to see newcomers to recovery not trust me right off. i dotn trust them either. its a 2 way street and has to be earned through action.it takes T.I.M.E.

The newcomer should be free to ask anything they want, whether I answer is my doing. If answering your question would help you I would do it, here or in a PM.
No need to apologize for asking someone's age on here. If you were sitting across the AA table from me, you wouldn't have to ask
Yes, with age comes wisdom. I'm an alcoholic and with my 68 yrs has come the wisdom of a mature 17 yr old !!
All the best.

To me age to me is just a number. I entered
recovery at the ripe age of 30 and here I am
20 yrs later and feel extremely young with
experiences, strengths,hopes, knowledge,
and wisdom thru out those yrs. However....
Ive made a decision that I just want to stay
young in recovery. Why? Im having to much
fun today enjoying the rewards promised us
in recovery if we stay sober and pass on our
own ESH to those still suffering with addiction.
Life is too much fun no matter how old one is
just as long as I dont drink today. Yah..!!!!

I'm very bad at guessing peoples ages.
I've known some very wise teenagers and some very unwise septuagenarians...
I prefer to listen to what people say and to watch what they do...if they have what I want, that's good enough for me...age doesn't really come into it for me

Trust is founded in ourselves, back from when we were children. Often enough, our trust has been broken or betrayed, somehow, and this makes for difficult going today, if we have not healed enough to trust again.
Your search for trust is admirable, and worthy. Be of good courage, and know that trust can once again be a wonderful experience.
