Hi Bryn,
Welcome araa, Nice of you to introduce yourself.
This is not an AA discussion group but an open discussion on any and all
aspects of recovery from alcoholism. Although many like myself prefer the
AA slant on things, you will find many different opinions. You are very
welcome to express yours, and duck ;-)
Enjoy yourself and get comfortable.

Hi Bryn! Nice to see ya introducing yourself here in a.r.aa!
I see you posted using Deja News... Occasionally, a FAQ is posted
to this newsgroup (FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions). Just
do a search for FAQ in the alt.recovery.aa newsgroup (on
Deja News' power query). I found it helpful when I started
posting here a few months ago.

Hi Bryn,

Welcome. You're doing just fine. For more info, check out the FAQ. You
might want to look at Gary's "Inmmutable Laws of the Internet" which he
posts occasionally. It is a very good reality check...

Someone I worked with did that with brownies once. Seems someone kept

his pants down, so to speak....

When my children were little, I always gave them two - one for each

Hi Bryn, welcome to araa. My name is Harry I have been involved with this ng
for about 2 months and have found it to be a great source of inspiration and
a wonderful opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings. People who came
here before me passed on the same suggestion that I take what I can use and
leave the rest- I've found this to be good advice. There are all kinds of
thoughts and comments here. Some are pretty straightforward and some are
not. I've found some controversial to my way of seeing things and some have
opened my eyes. I think that araa has helped me to open my mind further. I
have a tendency to forget that growth is only possibble to the extent to
which I am willing to understand and learn more about myself.

Keep coming back.
love Harry O

Hi janine,
If you read Harrys post right above yours it gives a good starting point
for you. Seeing as how this is a new post it would have worked better for
you if you had posted it as a new message to group as opposed to putting it
in as a "tag" on someone else's post, but that's okay, you're still here.
Feel welcome to talk about anything related to recovery or ask any
questions.
I've sent you a copy of my reply to your tag and you'll also see it
attached to your tag in the newsgroup.

We'all are aware you're here just fine! You could direct your thoughts if
you wish or take the softer easier way and type them if you want. Either way
be aware that there is nothing private at all about any thoughts expressed
here. Generally they are read and responded to by terrific recover(ed)(ing)
program folks but are also read and responded to by some who are not sober,
have huge unresolved resentments involving recovery or the lack thereof, and
some who are just plain sick without ever having had a drinking problem.
Take what you like and leave the rest.
Prepare for an interesting experience that I hope you will enjoy.

Hi, Janine,

Welcome.

It's not a group - it's Usenet which means anybody can post and read
what's posted.

Feel free to post to the group - and if there's someone you'd like to
speak with in more detail, feel free to try the e-mail thing.

Hi Janine! Welcome to a.r.aa! You're coming though
just fine. I lurked for a while (read without posting
anything to the newsgroup) so I could get a feel for
how things were done here. Before you know it, I
suspect you'll find the same to be true for you!

On a separate note, in an effort to avoid unwanted
junk e-mail (get rich quick schemes, porno ads, etc.)
I discovered that a prudent defense was to change
my userid in my posts so it could not be harvested
automatically... It appears you are using Microsoft
Internet News. So am I. Here's what I have:

Start at the main Internet News window.
Select "Options" from the "News" pull-down menu.
Click on the "Server" tab.
Here are the values I have:
Name: MartyB
Organization: none.
Email Address: marty...@ma.ultranet.com
Reply Address:

Click on the "Signature" tab:
Click on the checkbox "Add signature to the end of all outgoing messages"
Click on the "Text" radio button.
In the text field to the right, I provide instructions so readers
of my posts can figure out my correct e-mail address.) That is:


note: remove all SPAM from my ID before replying

Click on the "Apply" pushbutton.
Click on the "OK" pushbutton.

You're all set! I hope this helps!

| A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand :)

Reminds me of a time when I had a problem with someone
stealing my sandwiches at a place I worked. After the third
or forth time, I realized that someone who was stealing my
sandwiches might also be stealing from the company. This
prompted me to discuss this with my manager.

I was surprised at her vehemence in suggesting I tamper my
sandwich with ex-lax! Tempting as it was, I also realized
that I might later find one of my sandwiches tampered with.
So I let go of that idea real quick!

The next morning after I finished fixing my sandwiches
and had put them in my Tupperware came a simple idea.
I pulled out a sheet of paper, and using a broad marker
wrote: "Thou shalt not steal."

I never had another problem.

As a kid, when I'd ask how many cookies I could have,
my parents would say, "All you want... two!" It became
a tradition that after dinner we'd be obligated to ask the
same question, time after time, to get the same response
most of the time (sometimes we got 3! Yummmm!)

LOL! I wonder if you might have gotten the same result if you'd written a note
to the effect, "Please... PLEASE enjoy this sandwich! I made it especially for

It's sort of a mind over matter thing. You direct your thoughts real hard
at the group as a whole, and BINGO! You're on!

Actually, you seem to be doing fine. The proper etiquette of the Internet
is
-- that you only post 'on topic' (here, that would be things AA related),
-- that you take private debates private (go to e-mail),
-- that you do not cross-post unless direly required (post to several groups
at once),
-- that you do not post binaries (programs or graphics) to groups without
the word 'binaries' in the name,
-- blah, blah, blah

That said, jump in and have a great time!
