    Quinnatpeace….Welcome…:wave:

    Bottom is a word I seldom use.
    I think of rock bottom as dying from addiction.

    I quit drinking because it had turned me into a woman I detested.
    Externally….there was no apparent reason to stop.
    I consider mine was a mental condition/twist.bottom.

    God and AA …the base of my recovery.
    :yup;
    hope you will find your way

    Still working step 1. Or really part 1 of step 1.

    Today’s reading: Daily reflections, Romans 12, the chapter titled Acceptance in the BB.

    I have to come to accept that I am powerless over alcohol. I find that to be very easy to say but very hard to accept. But it is the truth. I cannot stop drinking once I start. I never will have that power even if I stay sober for the next 20 years and then decide I want a beer. It boggles my mind.

    All I have to do is look into my past and see the poor choices I’ve made, the depression I’ve felt and the hangovers I’ve had.

    Today I struggle with acceptance and pray to God that He helps me on accepting that I can never drink again. I have to keep the fact that I am powerless over alcohol in the front of my mind. If I don’t keep it at the front of my mind I believe I will fail. I must continue to work step 1 and contiue to go to meetings.
