Greetings.

The first thing to do is introduce yourself in the circle:

1 .. "Hello my name is Ignatiaus and I'm an addict." Or whatever your name is.

2. start crying because all of your hopes and dreams died. The funny thing is when they really do die you won't cry so it's a trick. There's still hope so get moving persuing your dreams you lazy bum.

3. Call your mother. None of us have ever really graduated from Whatsa-Matta-U. Mom knows all you really need is two cups of shame and a little cookie. "Aye Rico be a good boy and take the trash. Take me to church papi be a good boy.

Steps 4 -7 : In a nutshell is just suffer and deal. Life sucks and don't worry unless you do and then fine go ahead worry see if I care.

Finally and I'll try to wrap this up so ya'll can beat traffic. Sing a song and go cut the grass and try not to look at porn cause if you do God is watching and that's not a good thing for later.

Good night everybody thanks and best wishes.

Just back from an AA/Narcotics/Gambling Meeting?

I often found the "Anon" a misnomer, afterall if you have to stand up and tell a bunch of people about you, your story and your troubles it's not anonymous. Could always lie I suppose but isn't that just part of the addiction?

Everybody who's anybody loves a good 12-step. Best worst coffee best worst horror stories. Always a repurposed church Sunday school room or random gym or random Unitarian clubhouse.

It was my sweetheart who was court-ordered long long long ago to go and of course, I was going to all the meetings. I felt sort of left out because I couldn't pinpoint the oddity of my thing the way addicts can.

I was almost jealous.

I've known addicts, including one who died of the dirty needle, and others who where not sad to go to prison as Jane was easier to find there (prisons in Italy are/were not like prisons in the USA... think the movie Midnight Express and you have the general idea).

I know they suffer (some admit it, some don't).

I can empathize... to a point... however, my empathy only goes so far as I have never suffered their torment.

On the other hand, I have met alcoholics who have come to the conclusion that anyone who drinks more than a single brandy laced eggnog at Christmas (one single drink a year) is a full blown alcoholic in need of serious intervention... dire need of help.

By that criterion, I am a wicked deluded skunk with a horrid monkey on my back that is ripping my very soul from my being... think Anne Sexton, her poem Mercy Street and book The Awful Rowing Toward God.
