Wink New to site not recovery

I'm 28 with 8 years of recovery thanks to the fellowship of Aa and a good sponser and remaining active in my home group. I have 2 little boys 7-6 years old and they have never seen me drink yet. I know as long as I stay in today and take care of my side of the street I pray they never will. We just celebrated 8 years of recovery. I'm going back through the steps a again with my sponser I'm looking for a new way of life, the one I've been living hasn't been bad but I want to be the best ( jon) I can be today. I'm open to new resources that's why I'm here. I can clearly identify with pages 60-62 in the big book if only my wife would clean the house, have sex with me once a week, take her bi polar meds daily, want a change in her life how happy I would be!!!! If my kids would only do exactly what I want when I want, if we could live in a budget where I didn't have to work 72 hrs a week(I make 1200 take home a week and stil just pay my bills). So needless to say I'm ready for a change. I've always had good faith and rely on god(but see clearly in my life I play god instead of letting god work through me). I've been hitting my knees 2 times a day a d try to keep god counsinios throughout the day. I've always prayed And read the 24 hour book but usually only when I go to bed I work midnites. So I've been making some good chAnges I've been in the last 2-3 weeks made a decision to rework the steps with his guidance we did 1-3 he suggested pray at bedtime and when I wake up along with touchstones daily meditation for men daily reflections and 24 hour book. I just did my fourth step I printed out a set of work sheets off the Internet- that followed rite with the big book and also read step 4 in the big book. I can't wait to do the 5-6-7 step. I'm ready for a change I can clearly we a life ran on self will run riot isn't the way I want to live anymore. I went through the steps with my first sponser 7 years ago. That was before I had all this responsibilities. ( my first sponser got a double lung transplant at his 4th year sobriety a true physical second chance at life and a couple years later drank himself to death) I want a better life "we are all nuts Aa is the wrench that fits us all" if you don't go within you'll go without.

Welcome to SR Young Well done on your sober time! There are often young people here who don't think they can quit so young so I am sure you will be an inspiration to them x
