It's the fear of alcohol that takes the power away from alcohol, ironic as that sounds; no different than the notion of surrendering providing us with power.
a tree which does not grow is a dying tree.
We find our strength in knowing our weakness, taking steps through those, and helping others to do the same.
What you want can and will change; today, head in that direction the best you can.
It's an easy message to nod to, it's not an easy message to live by.
I know why I'm here; I'm an alcoholic. I think differently. I have a personality that conflicts with being human in a pack of humans. And those in these rooms show me how to act, and sometimes not act.
I not only found recovery in these rooms, I found my soul.
I know what the right thing is, I just don't always do it.
When I first came into AA, I was not a good fit for it, but AA was always a good fit for me.
I came because I had no where else to go, I listened because I wanted to live, and because I did both, I found a joy in life I once believed a fairy-tale.
