Step meeting. I took down a blog because I learned about triggers and I don't want to trigger anyone.

Comments:

Went to meeting    
"Not sure if I am welcome there. More than one dude there suggested that I go to one with more women in it. Oh, well. I guess I don't care. I'm not going for them, anyways. I'm going for myself And if some people don't like it, tough noogies."

Perhaps    
"...they thought maybe you'd feel more comfortable. Hopefully. And don't worry about triggering others. Better to err on the side of open honesty and enjoy the recovery that ensues from that than to worry about other peoples issues and feel like you can't share. We are powerless to stop/control all triggers and trust me... if we want triggers and new ideas we'll find um. A recovery environment should be a perfect place for us to practice surrendering our triggers NOT practice controlling them. My opinion. You know what's respectful trust yourself :)

p.s. Bam! You went to a meeting. Congrats hommie"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."

— Neal A. Maxwell
