People go to AA for different reasons … its mostly for self-harm in my case I would say. That is doing things that make myself uncomfortable and or others, such as talking to self or self-harming. These are not things you discuss out loud, just be understanding of others, I have not been hospitalized since 2017 and have been doing well, for the most part, its really not anyones business for what reasons people self-harm, that’s something between themselves and their doctors. Don’t be worried about others, especially if it has nothing to do with you, rarely will you get reassurances from someone who has caused you worry, or harm, that is the bottom line, until you are able to help yourself, you get designated as worrisome, others playing victim to your condition, which is outside of your control, unless you choose to stay sober, its hard to make your life change for the better, and even then life can still be difficult as sober. I have been sober since 2014, and sober everyday since 04/02/17. It’s a long process of recovery, once you get sober, unless you choose to abstain from drinking and dating can maintain sobriety, it becomes a lonely world on your own, why people attend meetings to have a support group and to be around others who similarly need support, that’s not the same as going out and making friends, the friends you make in AA are not for fun, but for support, more like professional relationships not people you go out and do things with or date, that’s not recommended in your early days, weeks, and months of sobriety. I think the hardest thing is starting over once you do decide to stop drinking, there are a lot of triggers you will face in life, death, co-dependence, hate, suicide, and people getting sick around you, but you have to be strong. Life is not easy everyone goes through losses in life, its how you handle yourself in the event of a loss, that determines your overall positive outlook in life, whether able to maintain it. Just be cognizant of others around you … may wish for stability over worry, and whenever others are under your care, then stability is preferred, always be a person of your word and stay sober.
