IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE LIKE THIS. THERE IS A WAY OUT THAT ABSOLUTELY WORKS - IF WE WANT IT.
From "Building a New Life:" c. 2001, Alcoholics Anonymous, page 485
"I wanted to feel at peace with myself and comfortable with other people. I never found it in drinking. The belonging I always wanted I have found in A.A. and in sobriety. I don't think about drinking. God is there. My sponsor is there. All the credit belongs to God. On my own I could not have quit. I know, I tried it."
From "Acceptance was the answer" Alcoholics Anonymous 2001 p. 417
............Until I could accept my alcoholism I could not stay sober: unless I accept my life completely on life's terms I cannot be happy..... I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.

If alcohol is costing you more than just money, then maybe you would like to find out what you can do about it.
Trying to figure it out on your own can be unbearable.
Just when you think you have got the problem under control you are drunk again. Why is this?
We who have traveled this road know just what its like to wake up in strange places (sometimes with strange people) not knowing how or when we got there.
Hiding our drinking patterns from our families, employers and friends became a way of life for many of us. We reached a point of despair.
Many of us lost our jobs, driving licences, girl friends, boyfriends ,wives,husbands, children, dignity, self respect et al.
We were filled with fear and remorse and with some of us plain terror meeting those four hideous horsemen; bewilderment, despair, frustration, terror.
If you would like to find out more then you are welcome to send me a message
Please keep in mind that:
YOU'RE NO LONGER ALONE..........(Unless you really want to be)

PROBLEMS OTHER THAN ALCOHOL
Many people who have problems other than with alcohol are encouraged by some well meaning people to join AA as a solution to their specific problem. BUT..........What is the AA take on this?
It may take a little time to download but it's well worth waiting.
ALCOHOLISM. Malady or Moral Issue?
For over thousands of years alcohol has played its part in society. Being a very powerful mind-altering substance it is often used for relaxation and social interaction. This is not confined only to the so called "Westerners" It is a fact of life in every society known to man.
Now herein lies the problem. When does the "social drinker" cross the line into alcoholism?
The answer to this question is puzzling as there seems to be no stock answer.
Essentially, we are not reformists. We believe each person has the right to choose for themselves in which direction they want to go. We neither endorse nor oppose the use of alcohol. Our only aim is to be of service to those who are suffering as a result of alcohol abuse.
