    LKKPA “Ok, after my last posting of my difficulties with step 2”

    What does step two have to do with being an alcoholic or not? Lots of non alcoholics had already took step 2 because life is unmanageable – Try reading the big book sounds like your being administered the freely given steps and tiring to figure out how it works before reading the Big Book like doctors opinion, Bills story and most important the we of the program a whole chapter dedicated to “We Agnostics” – It is better to understand rather than be understood unless of course your God. (catch the drift) nothing changes if nothing changes

    Easy does it

    Lkkpa,

    You and I are a lot alike. Whenever someone asks me what time it is, I have to tell them the huistory of timekeeping devices back to the first sundial. I have to examine everything twice before I can accept it as the truth.

    Then someone explained to me what the first three letters of analysis spelled.

    Please don’t take any offence, but your “examination” of your first step is entirely superflouous.

    You merely need to be rigorously honest in ansewering the two questiions written below. It’s from “We Agnostics” in the Big Book of alcoholics anonymous:

    “We hope we have made clear the distinction between the alcoholic and the non-alco*holic. If, when you honestly want to, you find you cannot quit entirely, or if, when drinking, you have lit*tle control over the amount you take, you are probably alcoholic.”

    That’s it. And, actually, for that matter, who gives a damn? If you work the steps, your life will become more wonderful than you can imagine. It will never occur to you to want a drink again!

    Stop dithering. Get to work

    All quotes from first edition of Alcoholics Anonymous
