    I encourage anyone who feels they’ve given whatever they’re doing a fair go, but it’s not for them, to not dismiss support entirely – but to try something else.

    There are many paths up the mountain, but whatever way we choose we still have to have to go the distance ourselves 🙂

    They told me to go to 90 meetings in 90 days and if I wanted to return to my old ways they would refund my misery..

    I don’t think they took under consideration that there are some who do just fine w/o AA.

    My mom passed away with 25 + years sober and she only went to AA her 1st year or so.

    She told me she never could relate cause she was not a low bottom drunk. She always drank wine in her bdrm at night and that was it.

    If you ask me there was a bit of denial in all of that, but it worked for her.

    I also have learned only through 12 Step National Meetings, that people can, and do stay sober w/o AA. I never really thought so before 12 Step National Meetings.

    I used to judge cause of a lot of people in AA would refer to people like that as dry drunks, and that is just not true!!!:You_Rock_
