scott you luckey thing...lol. sounds like dreamland. you and the wife looking to adopt?
actually this town sounds alot like yours. I stayed on the back walls at meetings sober for over 20 years, and when i was wanting to do steps they just wanted to know who the hell I was
They really thought I was insane. I actually wasn't insane just living a life filled with insanity, on yet another hubby that went far beyond alcoholism. The shame of it is that the men that do help the women in terms of sponsorship or just someone to talk to. they HAD to be sleeping with them, ya know, it just had to be
when I started helping with men in this town I was panned as sleeping around...so the story continues, but what the hey if they are talking about us it gives everyone else the day off of being talked about....LMAO
This town operates off the idea that just being not drunk and going to meetings is working the program, and hey if it works for them work it buddy, but it doesn't work for me so there is less than a dozen of us clinging to each other and huddling up for meetings just for safety.
the other AA's in town don't support our meetings and thankfully we don't have to deal with the* just go to meetings and don't drink and life will be great* with joker faces as big old grins.
It's a shame that AA ends up sometimes operating off of personalities before than principals, but hopefully it gets better in time, Nice thing is though that the dozen or so of us do pretty well, and we grow a little at a time.
Wow it just occurred to me that scott you and dale are like neighbors...lol. I used to be in wilkes-barre, in fact have a drunk ex-hubby up there still if he's alive, last I heard he was homeless. and I took up sky diving in harrisburg. Beautiful country, I always considered it God's country. When I got out the Air Force in late 86 thats where I wanted to move to but very reluctantly came here instead...lol
..... I've talked way too much on here so I'm outta here...lol
