We started talking about this on another thread, but I felt there maybe some others brothers and sister out there that need to stand up and talk about this addiction. Maybe you are trying to stop or maybe you are like myself gotten clean. This is the place where you can stand up and testify or share you fellings about this life style of swingers.

I was addicted for over 35 years, I will repost my story.

Being a 12 step member of S.A. the first step is to recognize. I AM A SWINGER, many times I have tried to stop, but couldn't. I knew I had a problem one cold December day it was about 23 below zero and I was driving to work, and passed a park. There it was glistening in the cold, I found myself slamming on the brakes and running as fast as I could, my heart pounding as the swing came into my reach. Grasping the cold chains I got my fix. Thatís when I knew I needed help. I know it will be a hard journey but with the help of my friends I know I will become swing free. One day at a time. Thank you and thank God for S.A.

You don't know the hell, I went through. It consumed me, to the point I had lost everything, my wife, my house, my car, my career I like you wanted to reach the stars but instead did a massive jump not to land on my feet but my face. I am so sorry you are disappointed in me, S.A. saved my life, before I quit I was up to swinging 20 to 23 hours a day. Sometime I would fall asleep and wake to just find myself dangling in wee hours of the morning. To each their own, but I am a recovering swinger.

It got so bad, I had at least a half of a dozen pushers, anything to get my swingers fix. I would sneak out after dinner for a quick swing. I would have my pushers to set up swinging sessions out of town. Then have them call the house to tell my wife at the time I was scheduled for a business meeting and what time I should be there. The swinging binges OMG two weeks solid. I even had one pusher who set me up with a bad swing that almost killed me; it was in the southern part of the state near a swimming hole. I went there and climbed in the ole tire swing and half way through just as I was almost as high as I could get, the rotten rope broke slamming me into the river. Now you know why I am in S.A's 12 step program.

I like to swing and I don't have a problem. If I want to stop somewhere and swing that's my right. I do it because I like to not because I have to. I can stop swinging anytime. Really, I don't have a problem.

"Pat"...the first step is to admit that you have a problem. You sound like the rest of us who didn't want to admit it at first. But...then when I found this topix and seen all the other swingers out there I didn't feel so alone and now I am proud to say that I am a recovering swinger. I do find myself fighting the need to swing. See it's so hard for me cause I have a lot of swings across the street form my house and I have to look at my addiction everyday. Some days I will sit on my front steps and just look across the street at those swings and I can hear them calling my name. I have gotten rid of all my pushers and that has made it easier for me. Without the help of my pushers I know that I can't get as high by myself. I would like to thank all my other brothers and sisters out there who are fighting this same addiction with the support of all you I have been doing really great. I had only one relapse and it was this past weekend. I walked across the street and touched the cold steel and rubbed my hand up and down it and then I sat in the black rubber seat and gave myself one little swing...I cried with fear that I would fall back into the swingers lifestyle, but I got off and slowly walked away and didn't look back. I went home and got on here.

I cannot believe that I am surrounded by all these quitters. It breaks my heart to know so many other wise good, honest, healthy people have given up a precious piece of their childhood for the safe confines of socially acceptable behavior. What is the world coming to when we have to hide our childhood pastime from the rest of the world? In a world that is filled with sloth and unfulfilled potential we are now stifling the very beginnings of our first venture into socialization. I say better to be addicted to the sweet innocence of swinging than to be shut away and fear the joyous laughter of the playground for the rest of your life!

P2B..I have a secert! Shhhhh...don't tell anyone, but I have been swinging late at nite when noone is around and noone can see me. I'm a fraud at this swingers anonomyous thing. I have tried so hard to stop, but the addiction is to powerful. I love the feel of the wind in my hair and being able to almost touch the clouds when I'm high. Are you a pusher? Sounds like it...getting on here trying to get us to get back into our addictions. Unlike most I am weak when it comes to swinging. Can we have a swing meeting? I say at midnite at the park when noone else can see you pushing this addiciton on me. I can almost feel the cold steel in my hand and the wind in my hair. LOL...sorry that was a burst of laughter. I have butterflies just thinking of the high I can get with you as my pusher.

Sneaking around in the middle of the night to swing is just wrong! Dont deny what you are! Your a swinger so do it proudly in the light of day when all the other swingers and pushers are out!Swing high and upside down and both ways if you want.Have swingers pride!I've swung a time or two myself,I'll admit it!I've even swung double.

what breaks my heart is the way they market this life style to our youth. our schools support it, in fact they encourage it from the begining of kindergarden. Sears and playskool along with other manufactures are targeting our kids, who knows what will come next instead of smoking Joe the camel, it will be swinging Sam the elephant.
lmao

Jodi, Thats the way it starts take it from me I know. You start socially maybe once twice a week, then you start swinging alone. Before you know it you can't get high from just a normal recreational swing. To futher your high you find yourself following the carnivals around and get on the parachute swings and slip the pusher a extra ticket or two to TURN IT UP A NOTCH. It never end and the higher you get the higher you want to go.

That is so true and I did follow the carnivals around for almost a year. I would go to every pusher there and beg for the highest high they could offer. Some would ask for tickets and some would ask for money and some would just do it for free. I realized that I couldn't go on like that any longer. I finally moved across the street from a school and now I can swing anytime I like. I really need help...I need help with my addiction. It is getting bad I find myslef missing work and putting my family to the side just so I can go and get my swing on.

Jodi, I stayed locked up in the house all weekend. Was not going to take any chances, but I had a major set back, went into the studio and done some recording and wouldn't you know it what song popped into my head to record. John Andersons Swinging. Then I followed that one up with a ole spiritual Swing low sweet Chariot. All I could come up with was swing songs, I even went back and did my own version of She's still out there swinging. I even rewrote an ole Merl Haggard tune, Swing me back home again, and David balls hit, I've got a swinging problem. I would have been better to have gotten out of the house. I working on Hank Jr's. a Country swing can survive.

Yes Cherokee..I think it would be best if next time you got out of the house. But I would like to swing to your new songs.
