Alcoholic Brain

Hi and thanks for visiting. I have an alcoholic brain. I will try to post comments daily about how this alcoholic brain functions.
Sober date: October 4th, 2005.

Despite it all...

In spite of myself, and too many half measures, I had a two year AA birthday on October 4th. This hasn't been easy, however, it has been rewarding. I will be attending training to become a counselor again. It's a short training program to get registered and licensed by the state. I think goals in recovery are a good idea. Becoming a productive member of society is a great thing to strive for. It's all just a one day at a time thing anyway. So, maybe I'll just enjoy the trip, keeping the destination in mind while on my way. The neat thing is I'm not alone on this journey. You all behave yourselves, and do what's right.

You know . . . once you start AA - you're NOT SUPPOSED to STILL have an alcoholic brain -

"People have said we must not go where liquor is served; we must not have it in our homes; we must shun friends who drink; we must avoid moving pictures which show drinking scenes; we must not go into bars; our friends must hide their bottles if we go to their houses; we mustn't think or be reminded about alcohol at all. Our experience shows that this is not necessarily so.

We meet these conditions every day. An alcoholic who cannot meet them, still has an alcoholic mind; there is something the matter with his spiritual status."

(“Alcoholics Anonymous” pp 100-101)

I know you go to meetings but you can try the AA Program too, you know. And this experience can be yours too. It works.

If I can be of any help - please let me know.

You already are a productive member of society. Life is a journey, not a destination. I am so happy for you, and so proud of you, and don't know how you find the strength to have the patience and compassion for others that you do. Perhaps I could learn someting from that. Your roomate sounds like a challenge at times. Just take care of you, be happy for you, know you are needed on this journey and will have many more birthdays one day at a time.
