Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

STW- I was military and there are issues for me as an ex as well. Seek and you shall find. You are in a good place. I have found for me that a doctor has been helpful. Being honest about my desire/issue was tough and finding my desire to seek was because of my great pain. I didn't want to die but I ...

Re: Friends, old and new

It is a funny life innit Sandy! I am here to visit a bit but Hamsa said it well. We have friends here. I like to say, "my people". There are those who get it and those who don't. Here I have friends who get it and that is such a blessing as opposed to having no-one who does. I am in the know long en...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Just wanted to check in and say I am pleased to be here. It is such a journey and time is not my best friend but glad to have her on board. Reading back it looks like we all have ah-ha moments. It was steady for me but seems to be more-so as I get older. Is God real or is it a delusion of fiction ma...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

All is quite here. I have the theme of Christmas in my head from the old song,"Joy to the world"(not three dog night). I don't listen to radio (much) so it seems I am afflicted by other means for the consumer based "holiday season". I had to google all the words since I haven't been the best at part...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Jaxom, So glad you are here to contemplate with us. I know we have moments where the paradigm shifts and the rose color glasses are tinted blue, then red etc. I have to many times during my drinking felt no meaning in life and either wished I wasn't here to begin with or being self centered wished I...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Hi Katydid, I think miracles come in various ways. Sometimes it is another person speaking a truth that was needed at that moment, sometimes it is the serenity of loving my God or realizing I am loved by Him! Trying is tiring but sometimes it can be a place of triumph. Making a new life is hard work...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

It seems by the article that Sam Harris is open to ideas. Good for him. I can say from my own experience we are all having questions. It is the one who claims to have all the answers that is the one who puts me on guard. I do believe I am wrong about much and the more I am here on this earth I find ...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Hi all, Sorry I wrote a book last time. I suppose I needed to express some of me thoughts out loud. It seems to have worked and perhaps some right sizing of my own thinking has me in a better place. I am thankful for each day, it's an opportunity. Thankful for the tough parts, they help me grow. Ble...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Soready, 'Well done' to you. You have made an effort and glad to see you are here. I was once just 'effortless' and life was easy, successful, and brilliant, but since alcohol made me miserable, useless and invaluable, my life was a train wreck. I learn't how to making more of an effort, to apprecia...

Re: The relationship I have with myself.......

Hello to all, I am glad to pop in. Been away but not forgetting you all. The process has me busy. I am glad to say that eating hasn't left my register. I will scan for virus and disc problems but there seems to be no issue at the moment. If those spotty pants come along I cannot say that will be all...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Hi all, Just passing through. I have been well and hope the same for each of you. Life is good....most of the time. I didn't always feel like that was true. Having found a link to God through drinking has been a life saver. An odd way to arrive but good non-the-less. If I have to say why I am happy ...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

I don't like what drink does to me, for me, and through me. It has become my best friend and my worst enemy. I suppose it was my fault but how can I blame me who done it!!! The blessing is in the knowing how I can turn the crazy bus around. You are now finding that station in time here and now at BE...

Re: What Has Made You Happy/Angry/Sad Today?

Wow. You are taking action with a grammar album. I have found being married to a teacher has made my grammar closer to better.... Have to say I am glad to have my new computer. It is a Lamborghini and I am a snail but the idea was to be viable in 5 years. I have 3 to go.......

Best wishes <:)> <:)>

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Puppy, I have just had tears before the sun rose from your quote and this is a first. I shall use that one again and again. It has long been my mantra that God is my guide but rowing the boat is my job. No lazy birds fly here. It is a labor of love. I have found myself in the position of giving toda...
