Yeah, that would be great to communicate with each other. I have been in 12 Step Program for going on 12 years ago. About 4 years ago I was reading How It Works at a meeting, got about half way through it, and became so nervous and shaky, I just passed it to the guy next to me. It was a large meeting (about 100 people). I was so embarrassed I quit going to meetings for quite a while after that. I just recently began attending again. That was 90% of what kept me away was the fear of being called on to speak or read. Many times I would just show up late so I would know that the reading would have already begun and I wouldn't be called on. Thank God I am still sober, but this SA sucks!!!
Glad to hear you are doing so much better.
I have begun trying to read in slow talk at meetings, but only after taking a beta-blocker to calm down my heart. Dr. Richards said he doesn't recommend this because you then have very little anxiety to work with.
Just going to take it one day at a time
How much time do you have in the 12 Step Program and how long before you began seeing results with the SA?
Would love to hear your experience, strength and hope
