    I’m looking at step 2 today…

    just a thought….step one is prettty overwhelming in it’s realization of just how bad things were, and just how unmanageable are our emotional natures and our lives….it leaves me in powerlessness and that is something that leads me to want to fix it with a drink….

    Step 2 puts me between a rock and a hard place….hopless…but not yet able to believe…..

    It seems to me that it would be natural for me to want to drink to excape the delima I am in….I’ve had that obsessive thought pop up a few times this last week, followed closely by the realization that I cannot face life with or without alchohol…that I truely need this power I can’t seem to get to…..

    I think that for me, continuing on the path of the steps will relieve the desire to stop the unmanagability with a drink…..THAT i can have faith in…

    I have had times like you are describing but yep…i quit going to meetings, sponsoring, etc…and eventually although many years down the road…i returned to alchohol to fix what was wrong with me instead of returning to the steps….

    Hope you just hang in there and keep pluggin away with your sponsor!
