Do any of us remember thinking this way? This can and will change now. By taking an honest open look inside ourselves we can really begin to know the lies of our alcoholism or addiction, lies it keeps telling us to keep its self fed. You need to know that alcoholism and addiction are a disease, a curse that we are all damned with. Like it or not we are stuck with it for the rest of our lives, and for the rest of our lives we will have to battle it, never to stop the hard work, never giving up, even if we slip back into its clutches at times, we must fight for ourselves to get right back on track for the benefit of our very lives.. All of which will allow us to live the free, love filled life we all deserve.
We are not going to give up and let our alcoholism or addiction take our life away from us, never! We commit ourselves to fighting the hard fight and winning out over our disease. We say to ourselves “I will not let it win, because my family, friends and loved ones, and all the people I may meet along the way will know that I deserve to have the best life I can. And I will!”
Find a good A.A or N.A meeting in you area today, and start making it your highest priority to go to the meetings and participate as much as you possibly can. Find the best sponsor you can, and work as hard as you can with them to start your journey to building you new life. This all is the most important thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones. I will be proud to know you in your new clean and sober life.
