AA & Chiropractic


I am beginning to see the similarities between aa meetings
and going to the chiropractor.
My experience with the body-twisters was the exact same
spinal manipulation for every different ailment.
While the bending and cracking did provide temporary
relief, the only long-term solution offered, was to come back
weekly for more.

What i sought were answers and exercises to correct any
imbalances i had. there was no desire or need to become
long-term dependent on external manipulation.

AA tells me the same thing; come here forever, or be
in pain.
Sorry, I seek the same knowledge and methods for
improving my mental health as i do my physical well
being.

I do not want to rely on group therapy forever.
just supply me with the tools and tactics that i
can implement into my daily life, to deal with the
issues of drugs and alcohol; without the chiro-warning
that i must come back indefinitely, or remain in pain.

Dearest Jack,
HORROR:
Nearly four years ago I was wandering around [mental hospital] completely shattered physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The mental torment I was experiencing was absolutely terrifying. Every waking second, I was having horrifying images from my past.

I thought I was being punished for my past sins. My whole life flashed before my eyes and I felt I had failed miserably in my journey through life. The whole experience was an awakening [THE LONG DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL] a metamorphosis.

God was slowly penetrating the shield I had put up all those desperate years. I had no “I” - that is what God wanted for me, to become Christ cantered, not “I” cantered [in retrospect].

There is nothing in this world, but the SAVING GRACE of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ, who died on a cross, for mankind's sin. He eventually delivered me from my HELL; when I got down on my knees and asked Him for mercy and forgiveness for my sins. Praise the LORD!!

I, MICKY, AM THE LORD'S LIGHT & SALVATION FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
