My name's Anne, I'm an alcoholic,
First of all, I claim to know nothin'...as opposed to claimin' to know everything when I drank.
I'm currently holdin' up in a safe house, & as God as I understand Him
would have it, there's a lady here who's got 20+ years in the program...I asked 'er 'bout a step 1 prayer, she says she's never been aware of such. I's gonna go out on a limb here & take a flyin' leap here...1st Step Prayer??....
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change,
The courage to say the things that I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference, Amen.
'Course...for me, it went somethin' along the lines of: Oh God, I can't take this anymore, take it from me...I was a lonnng ways past half past drunk let me tell ya.
...ya...Mr. Green with no smile.
~~For what it's worth...like I said...claim to know nothin', was told when I come in though that by sayin' the Serenity Prayer, I'd taken the 1st step.
