Got your messages after 9:30 last night. Don't know if you are a church guy,
but Easter this Sunday and the busiest week for our church community in terms of preparation. Lots of people out sick, so filling in and jumping in at the last minute. Had a group set up last tight til 7:30 which turned out being to almost 9:30.
Doing well. Drinking in every word at the meeting and integrating it into the way I think now. Been good at filling in my evenings so that drinking isn't an option.
Appreciate your support and looking forward to meeting with you. would like to know your ideas about things, share mine with you, and hang out with the 1st step and really get it.
I have the calendar and if and when I can do more than one a day, I'll check in, but so far so good with one, which is way more than I have ever done. I have an obsessive and addictive mind and want to stay balanced and not just trade AA for alcohol.
Hopefully we can connect next week when things slow down for the both of us.
Denial is not a river in Egypt.
Denial is the psychological process by which human beings protect themselves from things which threaten them by blocking knowledge of those things from their awareness. It is a defense which distorts reality; it keeps us from feeling the pain and uncomfortable truth about things we do not want to face. If we cannot feel or see the consequences of our actions, then everything is fine and we can continue to live without making any changes.
Next week I'll write about Gut Level Honesty.
