Who's nerdier, the one who thinks of a currently very popular movie series, or the one who posts a black metal song from 1993 that nobody's heard of with lyrics that are a rambling musing about ancient secrets hidden among the stars (and that sound like a bad google translation from Norwegian to English)?

I'll one-up it with Bal-Sagoth, the geekiest metal band ever

POWERLESS

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable.

— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 21

It is no coincidence that the very first Step mentions powerlessness: An admission of personal powerlessness over alcohol is a cornerstone of the foundation of recovery. I've learned that I do not have the power and control I once thought I had. I am powerless over what people think about me. I am powerless over having just missed the bus. I am powerless over how other people work (or don't work) the Steps. But I've also learned I am not powerless over some things. I am not powerless over my attitudes. I am not powerless over negativity. I am not powerless over assuming responsibility for my own recovery. I have the power to exert a positive influence on myself, my loved ones, and the world in which I live.

From the book Daily Reflections

24 more, this non active alcoholic needs it.

Congrats to all the milestoners no matter what your sobriety period is. The first week was the toughest for me and took me quite a few attempts to achieve so well done to all ! Keep on moving ahead, one step at a time.

Its back to the hunt for me. Lets see how the day unfolds though this day belongs to others in my family !

Another 24 hours of patience, loving kindness and sobriety pls! Its 7:42am here !

Happy 50th FBL!!!!!

Congrats to our milestoners!!!!!

Checking in , I have been absent for a while , it is our summer holidays here and I live in a tourist town and there are plenty of tourists here at the moment so I have been flat out working , that's the problem here either too much work or too little.

All is well in Aussie land.
