    Well the first step is to admit that you have no power over your drinking and that your life has become unmanageable.

    Being young it is very difficult to get through that step. I breezed through the first three steps, because I was really down and out, but the shit storm passed, and I was back to thinking that I could be a functioning alcoholic and that I could manage my life.

    Part of the insanity of this disease is that we tend to put that shit storm behind us pretty easily and drink away those past resentments

    The 12 Suggested Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous

    We admitted we were powerless over alcohol--that our lives had become unmanageable.

    Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

    Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

    Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

    Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

    Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

    Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

    Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

    Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

    Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

    Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

    Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

    I thought this thread was going to be about being sentenced to AA for probation then asking whether or not you can actually have those sheets forged like a cast-iron check and still turned in without ever having to worry about anything...




    The answer is yes.

    None of you are as addicted to nicotine as I am, period.


    I actually find myself rolling tobacco out of half-smoked butts [/homoblock] when I run out of squares pretty regularly.

    It's sick, sad and disgusting but I'll be good goddamned if I'm going to let something as small as pride and self-restraint get in the way of my addictions.

    hi bruno







    Some people think that AA is a cult and that they brainwash you, the way that I see it is that I NEED my fucking brain washed. The way that I have gone about doing this is all wrong. My selfish and self seeking motives have led me to some of the worst places. I am willing to try something new, and so far shit isnt great, but it aint bad. Im in my first three months of sobriety and I can see that there is hope in this program.

    Sorry to preach, but I had to get some shit off my chest
