A little about me the instigator of this site …
Hi my name is Mr. X and I am Alcoholic.
It’s May 2011 and I am coming up on 20 years of sobriety in October, just one day at a time, but I am truly amazed at how fast time has flown by. When I first came into AA I thought I would be bored to death with nothing to do. The truth is I spring out of bed and can’t find enough time in the day to get done all the things that I am really excited and passionate about getting done.
Let me tell you, I do qualify for this program, I have been in the drunk tank more times than you can shake a stick at by the time I was 19 and did my turns in the hospitals and psych wards. Believe me I tried everything under the sun to quit drinking and didn’t really grasp how it affected my life till I stumbled into the rooms of AA. I was truly blessed when I came in. I met a drunk 9 months sober named Bill W. He shook my hand and with his AA buddies, scooped me up, took me to meetings, feed me, gave me work and took me through the book. I have never taken a drink since.
I was not a believer in the great one above, if you get my drift, but he found me here in the rooms of AA. I truly believe that all the Gods send their drunks to AA.
So to the point … This is one way I thought I could give back. I do my part here and there and have a passion for the program and carrying the message, after all that is our primary purpose. I am just not very good at remembering where things are in the book. So this site is one way I hope to give back to the world of AA that has so freely given to me. I travel a fair bit now and am always meeting new members of our tribe all over planet and it’s nice to have a place to come and find where the meetings and clubs are. Hopefully you too can get some use out of this site. It’s ours. Comments, input and corrections are always welcome.
So I hope to develop this site with your help and input, and please don’t hesitate to provide your two cents. If you’re a drunk like me, I know you will voice your opinion.
All the best and God bless.
