Endigar 380 ~ Giving Up Insanity

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

 . . . where alcohol has been involved, we have been strangely insane.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 38)

Alcoholism required me to drink, whether I wanted to or not. Insanity dominated my life and was the essence of my disease. It robbed me of the freedom of choice over drinking and, therefore, robbed me of all other choices. When I drank, I was unable to make effective choices in any part of my life and life became unmanageable.

I ask God to help me understand and accept the full meaning of the disease of alcoholism.

My active use of alcohol matches outwardly the storm that is going on inwardly.  For me, that was usually the result of steady doses of fear which exaggerated my instinctual responses.  The battle with this heightened level of anxiety is an ongoing process.  My primary treatment comes from making decisions to stay connected with my Higher Power and others who support my strongest expression of life.
