Greetings from a newcomer from Thailand

Postby Pauly C » Wed Mar 10, 2010 10:12 pm

Hi Guys,

an old retread signing into my first ever aa forum.

I'm 55 years old, originally from Oxford, England, but not the university.

Now living in Chiang Mai Thailand......today I am on day 54 since I had a relapse after 6 months of sobriety. I have just got back from a holiday in Bali where I nearly slipped but I had a great aa guy who has now become a good friend who helped me every day...my first sober holiday abroad since 2001.

Do I need to tell more?

I will if asked

I am hoping to get a lot out of this forum, I have read about step 4 which I am preparing to take and am quite nervous about it, thats how I found the forum..what I have read so far sounds good.

One day I would like to be of help to newcomers, and maybe I am by sharing about my relapses in meetings, but for now I will probably content myself with reading and digesting the great info I find here.

In fellowship

Pauly :roll:
