What is the difference between AA and SA. (other than the obvious)
I just downloaded a copy of the SLAA book and don't want to get caught.
Can I get the big book from AA and still be "yoitze" ?

I went on the SLAA chat meeting a couple times.
The problem is they don't really work steps, just sharing.
also while somewhat relevant, it is not completely the same with goyim.
how do they define sobriety and falling?
Different rules I think,
From the very little I understand of 12 steps,
I don't know that I have the Stamina to go all the way.
I'm a cynical person by nature and hate chizuky self help speeches.
I'm only doing this because the alternative is to give up on life.
I already screwed up a fat portion of it.very disheartening to see people falling after years.
I'm rambling a bit but I'm falling asleep .
Thanks for listening

My thread/My story

Slogans and Sayings

Relapses and falling are inevitable, the challenge is getting up.

Tzaddikim are the not the ones that don't fall, they are the ones that fall constantly and get up constantly.

I go to SA meetings and there are a lot of people in the rooms that havent slept around, including me, and have problems with masturbation, porn etc. 

I cant speak for SLAA (I heard that its a pretty loose definition where one gets to pick their sobriety definition). SA's is pretty tight: No sex with self or others other than your spouse. 
I am happy to speak on the phone. Please email me at dms1234ongye@gmail.com

Thank you
it was only two meetings and only some shared so not exactly an official statement from SLAA.
Just my initial observation

My point is, this place is not a place tell people how awful life is and how much you hate your life and yourself, for that we can listen to a news radio station.

You need to get serious about recovery and that means using the tools on this site all the way (ask Markz for help in direction for this site).

If you hate yourself then you wouldn't want to invest any effort into yourself, why would you want to invest into someone you hate.

Now quit your job at CNN and get onto a truck.

In my experience, i try not to tell people how to run their recovery. Its their life. They are responsible for their own recovery. 

I think, at least, we shouldn't hijack his thread

I didn't see much of that on this thread, and I disagree

The more a person opens up, the more it can help
