I wanted to be able to drink without facing the consequences. After all, others can do it - why can't I??? Well, it's because I am an alcoholic. Today, I'm ok with that! I don't resent being different from those who can drink with impugnity, and I enjoy "those meetings" now. Those AA people are now my friends and family. I'm very grateful to a part of them, and I'm very grateful to be a part of you too! Today I have no shame in saying, "I'm Dane and I'm an alcoholic."

That's called healing, Dane. Happy to be sharing a part of this journey with you.

That's what it's all about Dane. Sounds like you've really embraced your sobriety. Beautiful!

In for 24 Sunday morn.

Today I won't drink. Just for today.

Hope you find a person that fits! The perfect one will be if he knows how to play the fillers, not just the part he plays. I see so many that will play only their part and sit when there's nothing specific. Pretty sure that's not the way it should be done. Besides that, it just looks strange, weird, lol.
