resisting urges

the old thoughts are starting to surface on occasion.
am i reaching that point where it feels safe to drink?

sure i banter back and forth with my conscience and
that primitive part of my mind that seeks intoxication.

thankfully i still maintain enough gratitude to resist temptation.
by now my readers know i dont subscribe to the notion
that there is a point where, "the obsession was lifted".

my experience has been one of gradual lessening of the
grip of alcohol.
i have come to accept this as my path of progressive wellness.

for anyone who has not had a grand spiritual awakening,
you need not feel shortchanged or deficient in any way.
the changes in brain chemistry and emotional state happen
slowly and subtly.

recalling how far i walked into the forest of addiction,
allows me the patience to continue the journey out.

sadly it'll never go away. but the new sensible us is bigger, better and stronger to let us handle silly little thoughts like that. 'cause that's what they are! silly and studip and time to turn around and walk away....

Dear Jack,
You sound like you are sharing at an AA meeting - total "crap??”

Only God (through the SAVING GRACE of our LORD & SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST), can deliver you?

Do you want to be SAVED (delivered), Johnny?

The other STEPPERS can't help you, with their meaningless diatribe (comments).

Do they tell you, they love you, Jack? I love you, Jack!

I, MICKY, AM AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE TO ALL PEOPLE.

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