addiction rant


at a loss for words;
damn i hate addiction...

the nearly constant temptation,
forgetting the misery so easily,
watching others enjoy social use,
opening a positive drug screen from
from one of our residents,
reading of alcohol related accidents,
observing the dismal long-term recovery rates.

hate to be such a downer, but the realities
of substance abuse can discourage me at times.

i do what i can, on a daily basis, to address
the situations encountered.
if i can perform a service to help someone
continue on the path of progressive wellness,
it allows me to increase their odds and ultimately
my own.

we are able to use some of the principles he preached; but the aa
program is hardly a panacea.


Dear Jack,
Thanks for your comment!

You really can't help anybody - you don't believe that Jesus Christ, died on a cross for your sins?

You'll help them to lose their souls, like you are losing yours. Jack!!

REPENT JACK!!

ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD - JESUS CHRIST!!

FREE GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE!!

Over 4 years later, sitting in a restaurant I look up and the light glints in such a way on the Wine bottle....I pull out a pen/paper and just start writing to get through the meal. The holidays are when I detest the fact I'm an alcoholic, hate seeing everyone else be able to enjoy that singular glass of wine with dinner.

Yet as I write all the things I have now that I didn't then...it's easier to relax and enjoy the meal. For all I detest this part of me...I relish the freedom on my sobriety.

Thanks for posting this, it helps to know ...it's ok...to be resentful at times...as long as I still stay sober. (Hugs)Indigo

Dear Jack,
Are you spiritually dead?

AA ~ Spiritual Awakening
"Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps…" (Step 12).

Bible ~ Spiritually Dead in Sin
Man is spiritually dead, not asleep. He needs resurrection, not awakening. "Even when we were dead in sins, [God] hath quickened us [made us alive] together with Christ" (Eph 2:5).
