Your thinking and mine are/were exactly
the same on this particular point [above]. Each of the people who mentioned the fact they thought I was on a pink cloud have disappeared now. I don't know if they've returned to using. But I do know that they're not coming back to meetings and I'm still there every day. My first thought when they said I was on the pink cloud was that they were just negative ill-wishers (aka. haters).
And just so you all know...
I have a home group and a sponsor. I am doing 90 meetings in 90 days. Total immersion! I am working the steps with my sponsor.
Surrender = Serenity (for me). I'm working on step 4 right now (but continuing to live all steps which I will do for the rest of my life). I don't want to move too fast with the steps. I'm letting my sponsor and God guide me through. After all you work 'em for your whole life, right?
I take this program very seriously. But I do keep a good sense of humor always.
PS - Thank you [all] for the warm welcome!!!!!!!
