New to AA and this forum

Postby newme45 » Fri Jan 06, 2012 2:25 pm

I posted to the introduction thread and saw that I may need to post as new topic. So I am new to AA and new on the journey to sobriety. I am having a tough time now because i am also going thru a breakup and naturally I would love to just be drunk all the time to numb myself a bit. But it is good to know that these forums are here and reading the posts will help me. I am looking forward to hopefully getting to know some of you. I could use some friends that don't drink!

Welcome to the forum!!! I'm grateful that you're here. I haven't seen your other post yet.

Well... you've got some sober friends here that don't drink! :lol: And, we care about you!

I've gone through some breakups in sobriety and I know how tough they can be. They nearly killed me! But, I got through to the other side of them, and I stayed sober. I did just what it looks like you are doing -- I surrounded myself in the middle of AA friends -- and they got me through it.

One of the things I've noticed about AA's is: we may not always be close with one another and we don't always know one another -- but, when one of us has a problem, or one of us is hurting -- if we let the others know, it's like calling in the Calvary! And, we hang close with each other during the tough times.

If you need another phone number of someone to call and talk to about what's going on -- let me know. I'll send you my phone number in a Private Message, and you can call anytime day or night.

You've got friends. :wink:

Best wishes for you,

Dallas
