My name is Swede and I'm an alcoholic I am sorry about your technical problems this week. I really missed you guys. I don't get to go to a meeting on Sunday and I've been using this site as my Sunday meeting. I think this is the best (for me) website on the net.

My name is Peggy and I am a grateful alcoholic. I am also new to the computer and new to Staying Cyber but not so new to recovery. I remain amazed and grateful for sobriety one day at a time and it always works that way. I attend live meetings regularly but am always glad to communicate with alcoholics on any basis. I have learned that God works through people and the miracles keep coming. Merry Christmas to my family.My e-mai address is mjw@norcom 2000.com.

Merry Christmas and many 24 hours to each of you.

This is my first Christmas without a drink and it was wonderful. I know now that I am getting the respect of children back again (age 14 and 18) because they both gave me a big hug on Christmas morning and said "thank you Mom for not drinking this year"... Wow! There can be no greater gift than the love of our children. I owe all of this to AA, the Fellowship and my Higher Power who I choose to call GOD.

I am off work until the beginning of January and will be attending lots of "live" meetings in and around the area. Open speaker, closed discussion, coffee pot... they are all a blessing and a gift.

PatL, I have been trying to E-mail you from my home address and have not heard from you... just want to know if it is working... I will check here again tomorrow.

All the best that the season has to offer each and everyone of you. God bless.

Hello. I hesitate as I write this because I am struggling with accepting the fact that I am an alcoholic. I don't know. My drinking is affecting my relationship with my boyfriend, and, for that reason alone, I am trying to explore this avenue. I will need help.

I am for the first time in my life able to say "I am an alcoholic" My wife and my minister talked me into going to an evaluation at a local treatment hospital last night. I am going to my first AA meeting tonight and Tuesday I am checking into an in paitent program. I have to admit, I am scared to death! Monday I have to tell my boss I need two weeks of because I am an alcoholic and need treatment. I am praying I will have a job Monday afternoon. My boss is an alcoholic and goes to AA maybe he will understand. Even if I do loose my job, I am going to keep my family and my life. I thank God for the streangth of my wife to force me to finally admit my problem, it's too bad I had to ruin Christmas to do it.

Chip - hang in there. If your boss is an AA then he will have read the chapter in the Big Book "To the Employer". The Big Book also says we alcoholics have the stongest wives in the world. Don't look back on a ruined Christmas look forward to a new life.

Janine B. glad you found AA on the web. I had a hard time deciding if I was an alcoholic back when I got sober (Jan '93), but I kept going to meetings and listening to other people. And I kept hearing things that I could relate to. After awhile, and after hearing so many similarities between me and the other members of the group, I heard an old-timer say "If it walks like a duck, and it talks like a duck... then by God maybe it IS a duck!!!" . By then I was ready to admit that I, too, drank alcoholically. Just a suggestion, Janine, try to make it to a live meeting as well as these web meetings. There's nothing in cyber space as good as a shoulder to cry on, and hugs and phone numbers that you'll get at live AA. You can get a copy of the directions for finding a new and better life that we call "THE BIG BOOK" at a live meeting also. (Cyber meetings are a GREAT START though!!!) Keep coming back!

Hello, Janine and welcome aboard! I would suggest you try 3 honest months of "live" AA -- and read comments on this website too. The combination will certainly answer your questions. The sober life is so wonderful!

Now's no time to vegetate -- ninety eight will be just great!
