When I was actively kicking up an alcoholic storm I never really had ambition or a sense of freedom. Alcohol was my freedom.

Before I begin I should state that I am not, by any stretch of the imagination an expert on anything I’m about to talk about. I am trained in massage therapy and reflexology but alas I have no phd’s or masters degrees in anything whatsoever. This article is simply relaying the lifestyle changes that have [...]

Still dealing with the guilt!

Summer is almost over and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. It’s been a pretty good summer for them. At least I think it has. They had plenty of days at the beach and even had a week long vacation in Spain with their dad. We live in an area where [...]

“One day I walked into a store and I saw a little bottle of Jack Daniels. And then that voice – I call it the lower power- goes “hey. Just a taste, just one drink.” I drank it and there was that brief moment of “Oh I’m ok!.” But it escalated so quickly. Within a [...]

“Words are sacred, we must use them wisely….they are a gift of God.” – Burton Pretty-On-Top I was introduced to this quote when I left Rehab. I was asked to pick a page from a book we read from every day, so randomly I flicked the pages, and stopped on the page that contained this [...]

Is there an upsurge in 12 Step bashing?

3 Comments 23 July 2014

I’m not sure if there is currently an upsurge in 12 step bashing recently or if I’m just, by accident, coming across a lot of it. It seems everywhere I turn this past few months there’s a new book, or article or ex 12 step member with a blog telling of the evils or 12 [...]

Picture courtesy of Kitchener/rogerstv.com   I haven’t written much in the past three weeks. There has been so much going on I was totally preoccupied and overwhelmed. I was trying to focus-or trying not too-I’m not sure which, on the issues at hand. I just wasn’t able to write. In fact I avoided it like [...]

I am not a happy camper these past few days. I’m decisively irritable and discontent. But why? Generally life is good. I have all I need. Kids are happy and all that stuff and I’m grateful. Like really grateful for everything. But still something is just not right with me. I’m like the proverbial cat [...]

The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure, have lost the power of choice in drink. Our so-called will power becomes practically nonexistent. My powerlessness over alcohol does not cease when I quit drinking. In sobriety I still have no choice—I can’t drink. The choice I do have is to pick up and [...]
