Update : The Meeting Locators Search by Zip Code are back on-line. The search now displays the number of miles to the meeting and also contains, as does the Meeting Locator by Town, a link to the Google Map of the location of the meeting. There is some minor formatting that needs to be done but for the most part the meeting locators are fully functional.

Some of the other features that are now available on Sobriety Online are:

Message Board (We were able to transfer the messages from the old message board.

Calendar (Back On-line and improved. This calendar will allow visitors to submit and manage events and have them displayed on the calendar)

Chat room (Back up. We are trying out a new version of a chat room. We will see how it works out.)

One more Thing

I forgot to say Happy Holidays... Hope it is safe and sober!

Found this at dryblog.blogspot.com I'm partial to John. I hope they don't mind me borrowing this!

John Lennon quote
"It's no good us preaching at people and saying don't take them, because that doesn't work. It's like the church telling you not to drink or not to have sex when you're young, there's nothing on earth gonna do it. But if people take any note of what we say, we say we've been through the drug scene, man, and there's nothing like being straight! But you need hope, and hope is something that you have to build up within yourself."

Meeting Locator Update

Well it's taken a while but we finished the next phase of the meetings update at SobrietyOnline.com. The newest features of the meeting locators include mapping and a radius search. You can now look up meetings in Southeast Pennsylvania by town and map the location and get directions!

  • AA Meetings in Philadelphia by Town
  • Alanon Meetings in Philadelphia by Town
  • Alateen Meetings in Philadelphia by Town
  • NA Meetings in Philadelphia by Town

  • Also new is the ability to look-up meetings in Southeast Pennsylvania by zipcode and be able to search within 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 or 15 miles from the zipcode with the ability to map and get directions to the meetings!

    Been away for a while....

    But I'm Back! I've been busy helping Sobriety Online http://www.sobrietyonline.com
    update their meeting lists. It was an arduous task but we finally completed it. Well actually it will be in a constant state of flux. There can always be improvements, but it's a start.

    There are currently over 2,200 meetings listed including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Al-Anon, Alateen and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Area and we are constantly adding meetings.

    Some of the things we are hoping to do is have it searchable by zip code and possible have the results show up on a map. That would be pretty cool.

    Well I hope every one had a great Thanksgiving and are doing well. Well, as well as can be!

    November - Gratitude Month

    I just read over at http://www.recoveryuniverse.com/ that November is accepted by AA members worldwide as Gratitude Month. I didn't know that.

    Actually I haven't really thought about gratitude too much this past year. But as time has gone on I am starting to realize that I have a lot to be grateful for. So in the spirit of Gratitude Month I am grateful for the following:

    Being in recovery
    My wife and son
    My parents, sisters and brother
    My counselor
    My dog
    The fact that I am alive and mostly healthy
    I have a decent job
    I live in the US
    I live in a middleclass neighborhood

    I am sure there is more I should be grateful for, but unfortunately I am still in midst of healing. It will be interesting to read back on this next November (god willing). I will be grateful if I can do that!

    You don't know you have a problem

    until you try to stop. What is it about reality that makes people want to drink. Is it that bad? How come life was fine growing up not drinking but at a certain point every occasion needs to have drinks or beers included in order to enjoy it or get through it? Is it the stresses and problems of adulthood? Then why do we drink if there are good things happening?

    Is it the insecurity that we feel? That if I have a couple of drinks it will loosen me up and I will be more social. And then over time it takes more and more drinks to loosen up? Until one day you wake up and you are an alcoholic?

    A Million Little Pieces II

    Well I finished the books couple of days ago but I wanted it to sink in before I wrote anything. I definitely recommend this book. I don't think it is for everybody. But if anyone has ever gone through an addiction or knows someone who has, this is definitely worth reading.

    One person I recommended the book to stopped reading it shortly after beginning it saying that the author complained too much and because he also hated his parents.

    The other person I gave it to is really enjoying reading it and thinks that he writes with a lot of emotion. She already has recommended it to several of her friends.

    I think if you are on this web-site then you will probably like the book.
