I went into AA, back in 1987. I went to my meetings faithfully, got my 90 day pin. I worked the Steps for a long time, and though I don't go t meetings anymore, I still work through the 12 steps.
Because of all my illnesses, especially chronic back pain, I just can't sit through a meeting. I end up on so much pain, but I still read my daily devotional, and talk to my friends on the phone.
I'm so grateful, to be sober!!! I come from a long line of alcoholics, and I'm the 1st in my family to get sober. I lost 2 uncles to alcohol, and a bunch of cousins.
Hang in there, and keep on working the steps, they work!!!
I go to Emotions Anonymous and that's a 12 step program. Ever since I started going last year, I've been keeping up with it regularly. I can't say that I've actually worked all the steps though. I do find the group very helpful.
