Connections

I did it.

I emailed a very old friend who lives in California last night. I just couldn’t bear the isolation any longer. She is a recovering addict and a very loving compassionate and thoughtful person. Like many she urged me to attend AA and I resolved to do that on Thursday.

Today I got to wondering if there were any groups for medical addicts. So I googled, and I found the British Doctors and Dentists group.

And I called them.

And he got it. Of course he got it.

And this evening I am going to an AA meeting with the secretary of the London group. He lives just across the river from me.

And I wont be alone. I’m scared, but I have to do this.

  1. That’s great! I know it’s a big step and scary-but most big steps are! While I know at times it might not feel like it, from here it is so apparant that you are the one in control of your life. At a point where you’re not willing to settle for “less than” anymore. You are such a good example for me!
    Thank you!

  2. I am happy for you. 🙂 Enjoy! 🙂 Must be nice to have a meeting with this specific group of peers with its specific problems that come with addiction. Btw: do you know the site ‘A hangover free life’? The writer, Lucy was/is a nurse. She worked with people in the last stage of addiction. Which only shows how baffling and cunning addiction actually is. 😦
    I wish you a beautiful meeting with lots of good feelings.
    xx, Feeling

  3. I didn’t much care for AA when I used to go years ago, but I did enjoy the closed group for those in the medical/dental field when I could make it. I’m glad you ended up going, and that you liked it! 💜 have you checked out the International Doctors in AA website? https://www.idaa.org There’s some good info on there too. 🙂
