Topic: Do Yourself A Favor
I don't know if I have ever told you that I am also the author of THE DRINKING WOMAN REVISITED. As the title suggests it is about women who have a drinking problem. The book's web site has a blog and this month I would like to share with you part of a story a recovering mother submitted. Here goes:
"It was later after I had been in AA for a while that I realized that I am an alcoholic, that my past family life had had an impact on me, and like those who were alcoholics in my family I too chose to drink. Only then did I make a conscious decision to turn everything in my life over to God and that really made the difference. When they say take your body to a meeting, the rest will follow, that was really true for me.”
The point is, as I have mentioned before over and over again, alcoholism is hereditary. Be careful. Addiction is hereditary. Feel free to discuss this at an Alanon, Alateen or In The Rooms meeting. By the way for those of you who do not believe in God there is an inner strength, a strong consciousness that will help you.
