Alcoholism isnt defined by how much, how often or how long we drank. Truly when an alcoholic drinks no matter how young or old it is plain that we dont know what is going to happen after that first drink. We dont know how much we may drink were we may wake up or what might happen when we drink. It is just plain and simple that most likely something bad is going to happen when we do drink. Wether it be the law the family ,black outs and doing crazy things or hurting our selves we just dont know what to expect. I personally blacked out at age 14 the first time i drank and said i will never do that agin and continued then for 24 years. We dont just stop for a couple even though we say we are. I never drank just a couple i drank until it was gone or i was broke. we never leave a half a drink behind and almost never can stay sober more than a few days on our own. after a few years we are drunk daily and craving alcohol by the days end and then in a few more years we crave alcohol upon awaking from sleep. This is all about the problem and the problem is we are selfish self centered individuals that live on self will run riot. we carry anger and resentment and cant stand society with out blurred vision. What is the solution. I believe it is AA, higher power, sponsorship, and working the twelve steps. The big book says into action not into thinking writing or contemplating but INTO ACTION. so my words for the discussion is get out of the problem and into the solution we are concentrating way to much on the problem here and the solution is evident in any ones life that has any length of sobriety so lets share it.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
