    Has Boss ever considered opening a subject area pertaining to drunks and dopers in a spiritual recovery program?

    Dude I have a major resentment right now that I seem to be unable to let go. Hopefully I will not drink over it.

    I keep bouncing back and forth between anger, indignation and shame.

    It would be nice for us addicted personalities to have a place to chat and read about healthy recovery ideas.

    Your thoughts?

    Bonus question. Who will be the first poster to tell me to take off my lace underwear? Heh, heh.
    I pray not for an easy life but that I be a strong person.

    Cmon you know better than that. I am a native Vermonter just like you. Always remember that real Vermonters spread sh#t, they dont pack it!

    We wont be doing Deacons Den anytime soon. Last I knew all the outside doors had been padlocked by the IRS for non payment!

    My thoughts? I see it could work right here. If Don allowed us to meet on this site, we could make it work. Only problem would be interuptions by rabblerousers. It could work if people were allowed to post responces only if invited into the group. Otherwise it would be to view only. Save for the group members who could not only view, but also post and make responces.

    Otherwise it would turn into a free for all and become very negative.

    I await a reply from Don.

    It would be an honor to participate in such a forum with y'all.

    I've been both. Doper and drinker. Recovered. It's not easy since the temptation is everywhere.

    There are support groups like AA, NA, EA in just about every community. That would be a good place.

    Get a book with the 12 step program and work it. Attend meetings for help.

    Trying to solve these 'issues' alone is not possible. Because if it were, they would not be issues

    On a BB, I don't think would be productive.

    Might not hurt, but I'm not sure this is really the place for it. I can't see it being counter-productive, but, let's face it, when you need a meeting, you need a meeting.

    A Google search

    Revealed what appears to be a useful site.
    http://www.soberrecovery.com/links/m...dsandchat.html
    I'm gonna take a look at some of their links.

    Dave that's a really good link. A ton of stuff.

    I can see both sides of the arguement that this is not the place to hold such discussions. The flip side is; due to the inherant commaraderie of this community, there is more common ground amongst us than going to another site and starting from scratch.

    There's already relationships begun here. We follow each other thru troubles as well as triumphs.

    Geting into a small group would serve to reinforse what we already know about each other.
    Feeling comfortable around someone is a begining towards opening up and sharing what deep down inside us hurts.


    Whatever happens, happens.
