It got me drunk; which was just what I wanted it to do. And the faster the better!
When I was new, I heard so many people say in meetings that alcohol stopped working for them. That was not true for me. Alcohol worked for me right to the end: it got me smashed.
The problem was that there were times I did not want to get drunk. There were even times I did not want to drink. But I could not not
drink! I was compelled to drink. There was no choice. I was a slave to alcohol, so just leave me alone & let me drink & die, cuz you don't understand.
That beautiful moment of clarity arrived & I acted on it & went to my 1st AA meeting. There I found people who did
understand. They told me there was a solution & that I never needed to drink again if I didn't want to.
Becoming part of the fellowship of the Spirit and taking the steps proved the truth of what they said. I no longer wanted to drink, nor did I need to get drunk. Imagine that, for an alcoholic!
Thanks for the topic. When I see your username I always think of the lady whose bottom was when she burned the toast.
It takes what it takes!
