I thought over night and this morning on this. Many thanks for those of you who commented with words of support and those that emailed me as well – hugely unexpected and appreciated
My break will be from commenting I think – my real issue was a break out of anti-AA sentiment on someone else’s blog where I couldn’t really engage constructively with the other person and I felt bad my comment caused the blog owner the need to vet and moderate comments.
So unless I can comment without any AA speak I’ll stay quiet I think. As I say my issue isn’t the person having a go at me but my comment inadvertently bringing AA into disrepute given I’m one of the few who stand up on the internet as an AA member due to the long running confusion in the fellowship and the blanket current guidance which frankly makes it next to impossible to be sober, in AA and able to say that on the internet. I can here them all now nodding and telling me this is why it should be considered the same as press, tv and radio… but I disagree in the modern world this here is the same as me leaning on my garden fence saying to my neighbour “Yeah I had a drink problem. I go to AA it worked for me”… attraction not promotion. Me here isn’t to me a broadcast or promotion it is my space
