Hi pt, I suppose it seems like you're talking to yourself around here sometimes. I just wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed reading your "Quotes for Reflection". Thanks for posting them. You seem to be doing well. Mark/Jeyu

Strongpines, This forum has only been around a little over a month. Many of us came over from an About.com forum that had been around for years. This format is very different and (just speaking for myself here) hard to get accustomed to. So yes, it's a little quiet, but there are some good people here and a lot of recovery support. Stick around and liven things up for us, will you? Tell us about yourself if you feel so inclined. Ask questions. Make comments. I think you will find that people will respond and welcome you very shortly. Again, Welcome. Mark/Jeyu

It is hard to change up a familiar format. I'm just glad that this site is here. Like I wrote, I live in a very remote area. Part of that is a good thing, since I lost my license 5 months ago and can not drive anywhere. The other part is that I am quite a social person and had a lovely social job, that I ruined because of my mindless drinking. Moving forward now and realize that some things are meant to happen and this too I will survive. I was sober in the past for six years and did follow AA during that time. I know that the program works for many and I will not speak ill of it. But I will not work that program again, instead I am using mindfulness and meditation. Have had one slip in two months - so will continue with this way. Thank you, again for listening.
