Well, it's officially been a little over a year since I last set foot in a meeting. I am coerced by my governing body to go, and according to my log sheet I am at a meeting now. I have no issues with this white lie I tell because I am, ironically, happier than I've ever been in life, sober, and productive and working. All the while without the aa cult telling me I was a dry drunk or about to relapse. over 100 drug screens later, I remain drug free and without any desire to return to my addiction. I consider myself a person, not an addict. I am a former addict. All aa did was show me the way I DIDN'T want to do it. I didn't want to go to endless, redundant meetings. I didn't want to hear the Gawd talk and how their higher power let em slip but it's okay cause they keep coming back. I didn't want to hear the same drunkalogs and pity stories. I didn't want to see the same losers stuck in the rut of aa with no purpose or direction, only a sick need to associate with other brainwashed inmates. I am so glad I walked out May 28th, 2011 forever. I know I will stay sober, regardless of drug tests. I want to be sober, it's a lot easier and profitable and my family is the most important thing in my life, not drugs. Once I figured that simple concept out, it was a piece of cake. I am done with aa, and drugs, forever.
