AA gives us the opportunity to surender to our alcoholism. but we have to have the wilingness to want to stay sober. both physicaly and spiritualy. i admitted i was powerless... the whole program is here for that time i have to make a decision to drink or not... well thats what the notes i have in step one... i do step two soon.... if any think may help someone... my job is carried out... good wishes to all, bless, and love you all... PC ...ps...forgot one thing... " Surender" yourself to the Disease

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselfs could restore us to sanity.... #######....lifetime of self-centeredness.... tapping into a inner resourse.... shows me my alcoholic behaviours... defiant, judgement, and lots of it... admited we were powerless is a start, activities of the mind our a big part of the spirit...faith in a group, sponser, people, books and a power greater than me...wanted to get sober, nothing else... creation, the moon, plants animals, everything is perfect as it is. put me in the creation witout the ability to judge...i'm part of nature, i'm not bad right or wrong. i'm just the way i am... no self-judgement, no demons... " Beatitudes for the Begats" =happiness, aquire, to father... the program is about change...fait will restore me to sanity... breaking self-will... leaving behind what i suffer from... a power if not greater, at least equal, the people in the rooms... i used to say i stop'd D&D'n on my own, but it couldn't be. if i did, i will still be D & D'n....doing people things makes me feel one among many, i belong now.... well that s the scribble ... ####### none!!!... their just my notes... if just one line or word of this may help someone, my job was well done.... Happy Trudge'n.... xoxox Rusty
