Hey Rebos, here's my story. I can't predict where it will go but I have experienced where it has been.
For many years I knew of AA and I passed through it and did bits and pieces of this and that but still held the Universe fully revolving around me.
As I continued to get beaten up (by the booosshh) I eventually started to hand over more and work it more but I was what some refer to as the chronic slipper. Even on dry pavement
However as I approach 11 months for the first time in my life for no reason that I can explain I have not had a single craving to drink. It was lifted the day I took my last drink (which was three days after I lost my last job and probably the closest I have ever come so far from loosing my life directly related to consumption) and has not returned. I do not know why and I do not really care it just is. Will it come back perhaps. But every month I have been learning new things so I guess I am now a little more teachable. Every month I get a sense that it may never return but that is not for me to know.
Now I still get bent out of shape but it is usually more about my thinking
Go figure eh?
I still phone my sponsor as soon as I'm wacked out about something everything else has still been there and had to be dealt with you know anger, guilt, thy will and not mine etc. etc. but no craving.
The closest I had was when a peron at my apartment told me about two young folks that had snuck in and drank vodka by our pool and went swimming amongst other
behaviour. I distinctly remember the sense of ya that sounds like a gas
. But I recoiled from the tought of the drink in fact it really didn't get to a thought that I would call a craving more like a fond memory of the times when it did work if you like.
Any way enough rant for the day;
