I find myself in a difficult position. I commented on someone’s blog. They are sober and attract a lot of sober people to their blog, particularly newly sober people. Unfortunately I quoted from the big book of AA. Oh boy – I should learn shouldn’t I. I look on my phone on some updates and my comment has attracted a very anti-AA comment. Shame. Also I’m annoyed – they can have a go at me on here – this is my space but on another person’s blog seemed to me unfair/wrong. The blog owner had to intervene removing the comments etc. How yuck is that?
However most importantly I have to consider am I bringing AA into disrepute? Tricky… at the moment I fear I am and that I could be unintentionally causing problems for AA. Newly sober people seeing comments like “I don’t come here for AA crap” etc. isn’t neat is it.
So – I’m back again to really thinking that I’ll stop blogging and remove myself from the sober blogging circle – go back to reviewing books and CDs and sticking up pictures of guitars.
Sad – I hoped I was doing good stuff. Today I question whether I should admit my recovery or how I achieved it publicly to anyone, go back to being totally anonymous.
Blogging break again… sigh…
