Control

What I have seen a lot of lately are people in relationships that are more of a trap, than the real deal. There is a lot of truth in the saying that "alcoholics don't get into relationships. They take hostages." My own world asks me who am I to set conditions and expectations on another human? Who am I to tell another what to do and what not to do? Who am I to say "I love you, but..." Who am I to have this much power and control over another human? EGO runs rampant in alcoholism and it is very self-centered to believe that one person can control, manipulate, set conditions and expectations on another.

I am sure it says in the Big Book of AA that we must treat each other with love and tolerance. Today I pray that we all can give up control in order to gain control. God bless and thanks for another 24 hours...

Grasping a hand...

I have been away for a while! Sorry about that one! Someone recently reached out for help and it is my responsibility to help another struggling alcoholic. I have dealt with police, hospitals, and ambulances and family members. I am seeing the disease in action. Throughout the whole helping process I haven't found it necessary, to drink. I hope when someone reaches out a hand asking for help, that you have a chance to grab it. It's beautiful.
