    my “life” is my thinking…….my experience was my thinking got a darn sight worse when i didnt have booze to quiet the noise….my life is unmanagable wether im drinking or not also.

    The discussion of the ‘hyphen’ vs. the word ‘and’ is interesting but the conclusion escapes me. Setting aside alcohol obsession: Life for me is unmanageable also when I revert to old ideas (eg attempt to control others). Manageability means focusing on my attitudes & actions -the only areas within my control. And that sometimes requires asking for help.

    Wrestling with questions like One or two parts gets me nowhere.



    I look at it like this:

    A)We admitted that we are powerless over alcohol (This is the heart and soul of step 1)
    B)Our lives had become unmanageable (This is the lead into steps 2 through 12, and finding managability)
