Hello , Everyone !

Good morning folks
I am Tony and im an alcoholic 8)
I came into contact with someone from the fellowship on the 20th March 2006, and have not had to take a drink since. My sobriety date starts the day after on the 21st March 2006. I say that , not because i am bigging myself up , but the simple fact that the programme of Alcoholics Anonymous , and the fellowship , and a Higher Power ( of my understanding ) have removed the compulsion to drink.
I came to the fellowship truly beaten, praying to die every night while laying next to my beautiful wife and son. When i awoke that feeling of impending doom was upon me and the feelings of guilt , remorse , shame , i had to drink to take those emotions away.When the drink stopped doing what it was supposed to , i had no choice but to try to end it all.
When one day i was on a bender in my garage , the only place left for me. ( or so i thought ) , i admitted to my wife and more importantly to myself that i had a problem. It was right at that moment my Higher Power stepped in gently pushed me to a neighbours house who i did not know very well, nor did i know he was in recovery. All i knew was that his wife worked in one of the local hospitals , and i thought that she might know of some help i could get. When she asked me what the problem was and i explained that i " Had a Drinking Problem " she immediately said " Would you like to talk to my husband "
" Why? "i said
" He is 11 years sober in Alcoholics Anonymous "
"Yes " i said.
There started the recovery process for me right there. As result i have been " Rocketed into a 4th Dimension of existence ".
Sorry i went on bit , but it gives some background to how i got started on this wonderful journey.
If you are new and wondering if this is the thing for you ? Don't leave before the MIRACLE happens.

Gotta' love it Alky Tone. In the garage eh? 8) Funny where we immigrate to basements, garages, park benches, the Ritz Carlton :lol: :lol: . Man oh man. I’m about to start working with my first sponsored one today and just logging in to see what up. Great inspiration. Wherever I go now I do try to think of how I can be of service to all people but sure as shoot always got that is there an Alkie that needs assistance radar going on.

Hello Tony! Welcome to the forum.
I was trying to reply to your message two days ago but I suddenly discovered that a worm got in my pc and I had to shut down fast.

Best wishes,

Dallas B.
