zemmy, ssshhhhhh. The oilam is gonna start to notice I haven't been around too much.

Cordnoy,
It all started by clicking on the wrong thing. I was a bit curious and then I really enjoyed the feeling. First I clicked again and again, then I did a search to find more things to click on, and now I am hooked. I can't wait for the next opportunity, and can't hold myself back when the possibility comes up.
I am starting to wonder what this SA business that everyone is talking about really stands for.
Perhaps indeed it is

ok, i love spoilers also but i have no idea how to insert them. could someone let me in on this secret???
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

Quite an experience, to be back in the same place, with the same thoughts, same emotions and the same urges as I was when I started this journey. But this time with the determinationto do things differently.
