Alcoholic Brain

Postby sunlight » Sun Mar 27, 2011 1:18 pm

From a very happy sober gentleman:

"Have you ever had a computer virus? No matter what key you hit, you just keep getting 'error message'. That's how my alcoholic brain is wired. I keep getting these error messages: 'I'm in charge', 'I don't need anyone', 'I can drink'.
I need the steps to re-wire my brain to correct the error messages."

I hear ya. Mine says, "I'm a horrible person", "he was right", "how could you have screwed something up so bad", "those people taking drugs really know what's up", "it's pointless, if I'm going to be in this much pain, I might as well drink"

The best cures I have found are prayer, meditation, breathing, AA meetings, working with sponsees, making and listening to affirmation tapes, reading from a daily meditation book, and also, something new I am working with, creating an internal boundary, protecting myself from these scary thoughts. All combined, I have woken up the last two mornings with a sense of ease in my chest, something rare for this alcoholic lately.

Blessings and gratitude
