Hello,

I'm new to AA and to this site. My sponsor asked me to come here and get familiar with things. So... Here I am.
The desire for alcohol has left me completely as of about 10 days ago. This after requesting the removal of it by prayer. I had very little faith in anything happening when I prayed, but thankfully this prayer was answered.
I am currently dealing with many "isms", and am so much in awe of this part of AA and other 12 step programs. I am surprised to learn how little I knew of the deep character issues that evolve into the backbone of addictive behaviors.
I actually thought I was pretty good, since I only drank heavy or binged once in a while, and went 5 months to 15 years and all ranges in between, without any alcohol at all. Then I read the 12 steps/traditions book, and I was amazed to see how much I rationalize my root behaviors, and these are the things that are "wrong" with me- that I need the fellowship of AA and others for.
I welcome the thoughts, inspiration, and comments of others, and would like to participate in helping other people in some way as I grow.
