Hello, My name is Laura and today is my first day of contunious sobriety. Been in and out of AA for almost a year, but never worked the steps or did what I was suppose to. I am completely defeated now and am READY and WILLING to turn my will over. I was sooo happy to find this site. I think it will be a great tool to assist in my recovery. Thanks for letting me share and GOD bless.

Hey Laura, this site was also indespensable for me and gave me another forum for good contact and good advice. I am 390 days clean and sober but my first AA meeting was 18 years ago. This time I came in and got a new sponsor and dug into the steps. Though I thought I was completly willing I did find I had to be even more willing to at least try some of my sponsors suggestions that I felt I new better about.

Obviously in and out for 18 years shows you that I am pretty hard headed. This time I worked through the steps fairly rappidly and with good success and then continued to apply the principles to the best of my ability on a daily bases. Somehow the world has changed or maybe it's just me :P

Hi Laura and welcome to sobriety! :D

I am always so happy to see new women join AA who are truly ready and willing.

It wasn't till I jumped into AA with both feet that I saw how UNready and UNwilling I was! :lol:

But it didn't matter! What matters is to DO IT.

I found a sponsor, took the 12 steps just as they are in the big book, didn't drink, reached out to others and helped when I could, and continually stand in awe at the transformation of my life.

And I have a heck of a lot of fun too! Fun that I can remember! :lol:

SO glad to have you here! Tell us all about your one-day-at-a-times.
