Hello Lauren! Thanks for showing up here! It's great to have you. You'll probably find as much support around here... that you can accept. So, I hope you'll keep coming back and sharing your self and the updates on your life and your recovery.
I can remember when I first got sober... and it seemed like "if there is something that could be wrong with me... I've got it... and what can I do about it?"
I found some list with about 300 different 12 Step Groups... and one look at the list... made me think that I would probably identify and qualify for at least 297 of them!
The more I looked around at the different stuff, the more confused I became. I finally had a moment of clarity that was "well... if you're not sober you can't do much about anything!" And, that made me decide to put all my energy into giving A.A. a try.
Fortunately, the same 12 Steps that was helping me to recover from my alcoholism... was treating all of the other baggage that I was carrying around in my head. Once my trash got taken out... and my house was clean... I just needed to keep it clean, and so far... it's worked like a charm!
I'd like to hear more from you! When you get the opp post again!
