I follow this channel some, so I recommend watching some of his bike stuff (especially classic dirt bikes). But in this vid, he lays it out pretty well about his blessings since going sober:

AA or CR (Celebrate Recovery)

AA your higher power can be God or a door knob.

CR is faith based 12 step program.

Choose one your comfortable with and stick with it. Get some phone numbers and be accountable to some people. You can’t walk this road alone.

I believe you can do it. PM me if you feel compelled.

I work as a spiritual counselor at an inpatient treatment center in Cushing, OK, called Valley Hope. Our program is not faith based, but we are a 12 Step facility. I've worked with lots of atheists and agnostics through the years, and I'm happy to help in any way I can.

Glad to hear you made it to a meeting. Wouldn’t worry to much right now about what you may not agree with and focus more on what similarities you may have with the people sharing. Keep it up!

I put the booze down 8 years ago and haven't touched a drop since, best thing I ever did. Social settings I just tell folks I don't drink, to my surprise I have had no one push it on me. Doesn't bother me to be around it, I just never have a drink. Hope it works out for you!
