Al Anon


So i am going to two Al Anon meetings each week (minimum) and one AA meeting (minimum), reading Alcoholic Anonymous, and looking for opportunities for service.  Tomorrow i will check out the Al Anon Literature Center which needs volunteers to sell books and answer phones.  I understand that the man who will be orientating me is a friend that i have not seen for twenty-seven years.  He has never left the program and i am really looking forward to seeing him again.

The AA meeting i picked to attend was a really serendipidous choice, i think.  Tonight there were thirty people.  In the past they would have really scared me (almost as much as ordinary people scare me),bur i felt instantly welcomed and safe.  There  were almost as many women as men, and their stories were equally, well,  dramatic.  (I would have said tragic, but hey, they are in AA!).

Wednesday, i will talk with my sponsor by phone.  I well request that we have fiuture meetings face to face.  I find telephone communication distracting and confusing.  Maybe that's autism or maybe it stems from the  fact that when  i  was growing up phones were mostly used for emergencies -- a ringing phone almost always  brought bad news.

Gosh, it feels good  to be back in Al Anon!

Equanimity, loving  kindness, compassion, and joy to all.
May we be mercifui, moderate, and modest.

))) I had kind of a mental break down but an alcohol and a hard physical work makes miracles...

"Hey, i am sorry, I pray that things go well for you from now on!"

There is nothing to be sorry about, I've just made a little pray for you too.


"I know i am not the only person on LJ who wondered what happened to you."

Nothing actually serious happened to me, I had got an information what will be next and my wide or week, as you please, imagination did all the work for me. I've got more sceptical and deleted myself from LJ. I was sure that it is not possible to reopened my page, as it was writed, so, I had'n attempted. But couple of days ago, I'd tryed and Or miracle! It's working, I've just should push the button! )))
During "all these time" if you are interested, I was working on my father's new biotechnology project, didn't get promised money and got involved in trying to make a house, but got loose in details and did not that much - the fence only )) but it was the best summer anyway.
I am planning to make a bacement from steel concrete before a winter make me out of this fun. If you want I can make some snapshots. Something like that... )
