Sober 2 years on 6/1
Today I went to my first AA meeting in about that much time. I went to 12 first step meetings in the first 2 months. I didn’t do it alone all this time, I was fortunate enough to have a very talented therapist working with me every week. We followed all of AAs philosophy and the 12 step program to the best of our ability and arguably most important each and every one of you cyber fellows. However due to cost and the fact that I was able to recover–i stopped seeing him about a year ago.
Met this woman, and she’s calling me on my shit which is all valid. I realized I’ve slipped up a bit with the moral and honest and calm way of life while still maintaining sobriety. In solidarity with her, but primarily to fulfill something I’ve been scared to do this entire time. Be open in a GROUP. It was absolutely hilarious. Awesome group of guys. Could be comedy show honestly. So milestones yay!!!
Side note, this woman is a little bitter and generally negative when discussing my ad-hoc way of achieving sobriety and having a spiritual re birth. Not huge issue, she’s strong as fuck and will address her own shit I’m sure.
