As I was re-reading this threat... I remembered that I never felt lonely while I was drinking... I had reached a place in my head that wanted to be left alone. I didn't want to be around any people... especially while I was drinking. I didn't want to share!
When I got another chance at getting and staying sober, I went to so many AA meetings, and felt such a common bond with the alcoholics there... I discovered that I never felt lonely again.
When I would hang out with some of the guys that were feeling lonely... after talking about it, we figured out that they weren't really feeling lonely, they were feeling horney.
That isn't the case with most alcoholics, though. And, loneliness, for a sober alcoholic, can be one of the most dangerous emotions to experience in sobriety. It is something worth finding a healthy and safe way of doing something about it.
As I write this... I'm thinking that maybe... one of the reasons that my loneliness vanished, was that I actively took the 12 Steps... and that changed my thinking in regards to myself, God and others... so much, that I never felt lonely again.
Best regards to you all.
