RE: AA - Atheists and Alcoholism
Even though I stay away from the local AAs for religious reasons, and even though I am myself an atheist, I find value in the serenity prayer, stripped of it prayer aspect. It reminds me to focus on what I can control when the events of my life leave me out of balance emotionally.

Take the prayer out and yes it has value but IT IS A PRAYER. Plus, I got it. After a certain point it gets annoying.

I'm drinking tonight. Going through a breakup and hurting like mad. Forgive me my soapbox moment earlier, Fred.

It didn't feel like a soap box. Can you hold to just last night? Can you get back on the wagon? Shit man. I hope you're not on some crazy super bender.

I'm on Day One again. I am not losing the plot, not doing the whirlpool again. I dropped the blade on the relationship this morning, and so the angst that fueled my slip last night is replaced by simple hurt, which is much easier for me to deal with.

Thanks to both you and Sky, and those who PMed. Y'all's concern is much appreciated.

Hey Thump. Hang in there mate, my thoughts are with you. Thumbsup

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
