But when we are drinking, it is only numb for a moment in time… Then we come to,,, and the Guilt and Shame of that last DRINK seep through us like a COLD RIVER… If your anything like me, I have to start checking who I called. Trying to remember what I MIGHT have said??? Who I might have SEEN??? What I MIGHT have DONE??? Because my life as an ALCOHOLIC was and can be again, A LIFE IN UTTER TURMOIL and CHAOS!!! ALCOHOL robbed me BLINDLY of my MONEY, FAMILY, FRIENDS and above all MY LIFE !!! I lived in Shattering FEAR after every binder… SO , YEAH IT CAN BE ROUGH, But I choose to RECOVER from my ALCOHOLISM TODAY !!! I TREAT my Alcoholism as if I had CANCER>>> I work a diligent program of the 12 STEPS of Alcoholics Anonymous with a SPONSOR who is in the BIG BOOK… I go to AA MEETINGS very REGULARLY… I get PHONE LISTS from those people, I FELLOWSHIP ( Participate in fun things, coffee, dinners, activities) with other members at those meetings… I share when things are ROUGH… I pick up a PHONE and call BEFORE I DRINK or DRUG. and above all else ( I ASK A POWER GREATER THAN MYSELF TO HELP ME STAY SOBER ALL THROUGH MY DAY).. It is my LIFE TODAY… If I DON’T SAVE IT, who else will… IT WORKS , IT REALLY DOES ,,, DON’T GIVE UP BEFORE THE MIRACLES HAPPEN…

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

The Promises Click Me

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
