    Step 2 just cements my admission in step one. To drink again would be crazy. If I didnt drink, that was a “sane” alternative to not drinking. I “could” be restored to sanity, with regard to drinking. Others had, and assured me that i could recover too.

    Thats how I was able to accept the insanity too.

    Later on in the inventory though…..I discovered I was more insane than I could imagine. The ‘thing’ that had control over my thinking and doing (causes and conditions) was about to destroy me.

    A woman (not an alcoholic) told me this and it helped “ego cannot handle failure, actually it can’t success either, but its not supposed to be in a position to handle anything, so when it takes over control of a mind it will destroy it….because it “thinks” its going to die if it loses control.”
    Being insane, the ego’s solution is to kill the patient.

    In the Big Book it refers to King Alcohol and my being a denizen of its mad realm, its ego.

    exactly. The root of the problems has to be adressed.

    Best way “I” can deal with that is to keep moving to moral inventory, and figure out where “I” was to blame for my part of the misery and wreckage.
