Problems I thought were coming at me were really coming from me.
Remember the worst before the first [drink].
I knew I was in serious trouble when the clerk at one of my regular liquor stores asked if I wanted a belt from the bottle right then.
The greatest thing the steps did for me was to turn me into a garden variety drunk.
When I heard a speaker say he drank 7 fifths of whiskey a night, I was impressed and made it a goal.
I decided I needed to ramp up my meetings, so went from one a month all the way up to one a week.
I was blessed with a spiritual experience at the intersection of desperation and willingness.
