I cant do this alone any more

Unread postby kimbo525 » Tue Mar 24, 2009 2:17 pm

I really cant. I have four days sober and this has got to be the hardest thingI have ever done. I went to a meeting and felt that "high" like I can do this. Well that has worn off like all other highs and I am alone and want so badly just to give in. But I would be disapointing so many that that is what is stopping me. I went to a meeting and it was mostly men. I was disappointed that no women came up to me. I have a call list with some womens name. what do i do with those numbers? I feel stupid calling but I cant do this alone anymore. ( i have my husband but he is an addict too.)I am going to a meeting tonight so I hope I meet someone. Anyone have any advise as to what to do with all the alone time?

You have to pick up the phone!!!!! I used to feel like I would be bothering people if I called but you can't save your face and your ass at the same time. You have to get over not calling people and build a network. I am suggesting this to you, but trying to follow it myself. Hit me anytime.

I want to compliment you on your honesty. Your right it is not easy and sometimes the only time I feel high is when I am in a meeting and that is when I go to many. But if that is not possible although it took a lot of courage I found a sponsor and had to ask her to spend a lot of time with me or be near her phone in my case of need. I really needed her support during the beginning of my sobriety. You are on the right track going to the meetings couldn't find a better place. The people who have put their numbers on the phone list have them there for that reason to get called. Whenever I receive a call from a newcomer it always helps me to also work my program. I learn so much from the newcomer and feel honored when I get a call. Better days are to come and stick with the winners because that is exactly what you are. The slogans are a great First Aid kit - One Day at a time, Easy Does It, Keep it Simple, Let Go and Let God were helpful and still are today.
One Day at a Time and One Minute at at Time. WIshing you a great 24 hour!
