Today I double-masked & attended my first in person AA meeting since March. I've been doing Zoom meetings, but they've lost their luster over time. Oh, man! Walking into the Alano Club & sitting down with others of my ilk was wonderful! I'd forgotten how much I missed the Club & the familiar faces within! (They're limiting the size of meetings to 10 - first come, first served.)

I didn't mention my recent edible weed relapse, but I'll rationalize & just stick to the Third Tradition..."The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop DRINKING." I learned my lesson from the relapse & I'll leave it there. I hope that isn't too dishonest.

I just got back from an in-person AA meeting. As I posted before, I've been sticking to Zoom meetings since March, but started Monday & Thursday in-person (double-masking, of course). It's wonderful to be back.

We have quarterly Zoom business meetings, and yesterday I found out that probation officers here have been accepting screen shots of Zoom meetings as proof of AA attendance. That's just wrong! Folks should have the right to remain anonymous. Taking pictures of people in meetings has the potential to create major problems for attendees.

I agree - that's a major problem. The whole point of the program is anonymity. I know I'd definitely be annoyed if someone took my picture in a meeting.

As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

I use so much of my time trying to be better - And the only way to do that is go into some form of psychosis? It can't be a slow bleed for me cuz I'm not easily surprised and easily go into psychosis from too much stress. But I feel like I'm going to go into a dark place - As much as I want to be positive. I subconsciously want pain and hold onto faith.

first of all I have to say I am stunned an amazed that I got into a situation just under a year ago. That I ended up having a problem with smoking crystal meth. I never in my whole life thought that I would be someone.
That had something like this happen to them.

All I can say is it is rough I know that there is a desire for me to wanna do it again, but I am too proud of myself, that I have kept myself clean and detoxing off all this nasty stuff.

And I am not about to my life back in the place where it was.

You should be proud of yourself. I've read that meth is one of the most addictive & alluring drugs there is. Putting the plug in the jug was hard enough for me!

There was an advertisement on my Facebook feed the other night for a drug that was supposed to help you drink less. Yeah...that would work in my case! I had to laugh, since I've accepted my alcoholism & know that one drink wouldn't do the job to my satisfaction.

Do you do zoom calls?

My eating problem is getting better, but I had a forbidden food at a restaurant.
What's your forbidden food?
