Well I made it a week! I have only been to one meeting but have been very busy. I just can’t get into them. I don’t like talking or socializing with people. My attitude has always been “if you don’t own a truck, fish or hunt, then we have nothing in common”. It’s always been “the life in your years not the years in your life” for me. Maybe it’s the Taurus in me that has always made me feel at peace in the outdoors. I work to afford time off to do what most would say “I don’t have time for”. Of course no kids or wife also helps. It seems AA people have a social void that I do not possess. I’m just gonna have to force myself to go.
I having been doing a lot of fishing this last week which I have always enjoyed sober. Next week bow hunting starts and I am planning a 5 day camping trip with my Labs to Hoosier National Forest (no showers, toilets or any facilities). I will be a hour to the nearest liquor store. My neighbor buddy is going to join up with me for the weekend. His dad was an alcoholic and passed away a couple years ago after 20 years of sobriety. I have kind of adopted him since he used to fish and hunt alot with his dad. He drinks but but realizes the dangers and doesn’t want it controlling his life.
The anxiety has stopped but headaches are getting worse. My head feels like it’s shrinking but it’s tolerable. I ready to be one with nature and all that my higher power has created. If hunting offends you please don’t make an issue of it here. Wish me luck or yell at me for not getting into AA. I am always open minded.
