Glad you're hear. Nice to see you keep coming back. I enjoy reading the messages that you post.
Sometimes, it seems to get real active here... and other times... it seems really inactive.... in regards to those who post messages.
We get about 600 indivudual, unique visitors who cruise through this forum every day... often just reading the messages. Sometimes, they join the forum and they participate immediately, and sometimes they wait days and weeks and months to post a message.
It kind of reminds me of how shy I was when I was a newcomer in A.A. I would show up at the meeting... but, I just wanted to sit and listen. I didn't know what to say other than "My name is Dallas, and I'm alcoholic... and with that, I'll pass."
I was kind of afraid to say anything... because I didn't know anything... about staying sober.
I knew how to drink... and I knew how to talk about drinking. But, so did everyone else in the A.A. meetings. I sort of gravitated to certain A.A. speaker meetings, where the speakers would talk about how they were staying sober and how they were recovering... how they were recreating their lives... and how they took the 12 Steps.... instead of talking for an hour about how drunk they got! I wanted to learn how to stay sober outside the A.A. meetings. How do I stay sober for the next 22 1/2 hours... after I leave the meeting?
I guess it's fairly easy for any of us to talk about all the trouble we caused or how much trouble we got into, or how much we drank... or how bad it got. I don't know about you or anyone else... but that kind of talk never did seem to help me too much. It always kind of made me thirsty!!!
Maybe, some of the others do what I often do here... and that's... I'll start PM'ing (Private Messaging) with other Forum members... and then end up not posting anything in the Forum. I'm not sure.
Anyhoot... if it gets too quiet here... just give a SHOUT!!!! And, maybe you can get us busy posting again!
Best to you...
