It’s depressing. I really feel different from other addicts in recovery. “Find God or die.” I’m really tired of hearing that. There are parts of my particular program that are (in my opinion) wrong and I’m tempted to attend a different fellowship, but it would still be a long drive. And my former therapist said once that if he were a sex addict, he’d attend that fellowship’s meetings instead of the one he’d suggested to me. There are only two choices unless I’m going to drive 4 hours or start a different meeting in my own town, which would be weird since I’d be in a different fellowship from my sponsor and sponsees.
And unlike most atheists, I’m in a 12-step recovery program and plan to vote for McCain and Palin, despite my disagreement with her religious views.
I’m pretty sure this qualifies me for misfits anonymous.
It’s a lonely group.
