Samuel Goodman Sam is just a regular, normal man who humbly requests: Please don’t shoot the messenger. One interesting effect of the obesity epidemic has been an increase in the desirability of Asian women. Thirty years ago, nailing an Asian chick was a consolation prize for a white guy who struck out with his own kind.

Printer Friendly Ooooooooooops Twingo – sorry to side track your thread – I really meant to reply to you but got side tracked by the responses! LOL So here is my experience with all of the programs for the 2 years I’ve been at this: Living with an alcoholic in recovery is a tad different. They are still going to be human and imperfect. Sometimes I see people expecting the others in their life to be perfect and labeling them falsely for just being human and making mistakes like anyone – because they also have the label of alcoholic or addict or over eater or whatever.
Sep 22, · In short, I slept with my sponsee’s al-anon bf after they had a huge fight and the bf moved out. He wanted to talk, and so we met for coffee. I always thought he was HOT HOT, and the hideous guy I was sponsoring was a fugly doctor who couldnt stay sober anyway.
If this woman has been dealing with an NPD, she was dead to him from the beginning. She never truly existed as a human being worthy of love, respect, dignity and empathy. It appears she spent years being devalued and discarded and then finally got sick of it, found her strength and decided to move on. This is a good post to read. All we know is that nothing we do seems to be good enough; everything is our fault; we are crazy. Nothing is wrong with the narcissist and he or she makes it very clear to us that we are the problem.
A relationship takes two people. A Narcissist absolves themselves from relationship responsibilities before they engage with another individual.

CoDA & Al-Anon. IMHO the steps are the steps and I had an interesting perspective having gone through the steps in AA for sponsoring in Al-Anon & CoDA. I have learned SO MUCH sponsoring. Book studies, step studies in meetings and here on the forums.
It is intended for people whose lives are intertwined with addicted persons. This model refers to the addicted person as the Identified Patient IP. The CSO is typically a family member. However, it can be any person whose life is affected by someone else’s addiction. This might include boyfriend, girlfriend, and unmarried life partners. CRAFT has three goals: CRAFT relies on well-researched behavioral principles.
Most people find these principles to be rather common sense. If you reward a behavior, it will most likely increase. Similarly, if a behavior is not rewarded ignored or it has a negative consequence associated with it, then the behavior is likely to decrease. Enabling refers to the well-intended removal of negative natural consequences that would ordinarily serve to decrease a behavior. For instance, suppose an IP came home drunk, and passes out in the front yard, in his own vomit.
It would be tempting for the CSO to go out, help her husband make it inside the house, and proceed to wash him up.

The ‘Twilight’ film ten years on. Non-player characters – The NPC meme This particular UN General Assembly took place at a time of schismatic geopolitical change. An old and diminishing Western banking cartel, sometimes thought of as the G7 Nazi-continuum rogue faction, was in the process of being deconstructed by inevitable and benevolent global developments.
The G7 rogue faction’s system of debt-slavery capitalism, imposed by economic force and state-sponsored military terrorism, was crumbling. A newly-confident, free and multilateral world polity was emerging. The full text of Lavrov’s address follows: Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, The speeches delivered during the general discussion at this session of the UN General Assembly confirm the fact that international relations are going through a very complex and contradictory historical stage.
Today, we are witnesses to a collision of two opposing trends. On the one hand, the polycentric principles of the world order are growing stronger and new economic growth centres are taking shape. We can see nations striving to preserve their sovereignty and to choose the development models that are consistent with their ethnic, cultural and religious identity.
On the other hand, we see the desire of a number of Western states to retain their self-proclaimed status as ‘world leaders’ and to slow down the irreversible move toward multipolarity that is objectively taking place. To this end, anything goes, up to and including political blackmail, economic pressure and brute force. Such illegal actions devalue international law, which lies at the foundation of the postwar world order.

Has your life been affected by someone else’s drinking? Sometimes the active drinking has stopped, or the active drinker may not live with us anymore. Even though the alcohol may be gone, and the alcoholic gone or recovering in AA, we are still affected. Many of us have received help from Alateen or Al-Anon. The following 20 questions are to help you decide whether or not Alateen is for you.
Do you believe no one could possibly understand how you feel? Do you feel neglected, uncared for, or unloved? Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else’s drinking or what’s happening in your home? Do you stay out of the house as much as possible because you hate it there?

November 11, 5: Hi everyone – this is a follow-up to my last question here in a way. I’ve been to three Al-Anon meetings so far, and I’ve found it very helpful. Last night I caught the guy I have been seeing the alcoholic that prompted me to start attending Al-Anon meetings in a huge, massive lie. It’s certainly not the first time I’ve caught him in a lie, but it was far worse than anything that’s come before, and it came about because he was so drunk that he didn’t realize he was saying incriminating things; he basically admitted that ever since I took him back he has been seeing another woman behind my back.
Again, I wasn’t necessarily surprised given our history, but it still sucked and hurt and made me angry.
