If anyone has questions they would like to ask me or someone else here, please feel free to ask. There are many, many AA related groups in Yahoo which deal with alcohol, but I have not seen that many here. I used to think that I was too "intelligent" to become alcoholic, and came somewhat close to killing myself to prove I could cope with life. Some neighbors did. So if I can answer any question that will help clarify for you that there are solutions to the depression, hopelessness, and other symptoms you experience that you are "treating" with alcohol, please ask. At least try something different before deciding that suicide is the only answer. I was in a mid-life crisis and did not realize it until much later. If the AA program is not better than your present way, you always have a choice to return to drinking. Please remember that AA is a program for people who "want" to quit drinking. (I realize that some people are "court ordered" to attend so is some cases the "choice" is somewhat limited, but that is not my point here.) I am stating my own opinions here, I am not a spokesperson nor am I "selling" the program beyond stating that it works great for me. I am grateful it was available.BB, I got sober in the Cleveland, Ohio area so that was more under the influence of Akron and Dr. Bob. Most of my meetings for my first 20 years were speaker meetings. I now live on the West Coast where more are step meetings or discussion meetings.gapfan
