Stabilization for Men

by Robert W
(London, Ontario, Canada)

I am 56 years young and I have been taking these two groups from the last time I have written here, I never knew there was a place for me to talk with others , being in a Men's group is Changing my whole out look on life as I see it today.

Without this group, I would be stuck in the same Circle of friends, their negative ways, and my poor selfish ways also, but I learn to be in the Now, learning to be a survivor and not the Victim takes one day at a time for me. I have been in groups for the first pat once a month for 6 months for an hour each visit, Then Building My Foundation for 40 weeks, then Stabilization for 30 weeks. and they just added another 8 weeks for us all.

Then there will be another one after this, so yes learning what I could not as a child, I learn now, and I tell you all this is so great to be so strong , and to help Control my Anger, self Shame, and the Guilt, and the Shame.

And I must never take another Drink to Hinder My Way to Recovery for nothing or no one.

Now I live and learn to keep my Tolerance like any Normal person if I may say.

We all can be strong More than you will ever Know, But do the Leg work to life one day at a time.

Thanks for Reading. And Good Luck To us all.
