The Alcoholic Illness
But not so with the alcoholic illness, for with it there goes annihilation
of all the things worth while in life. It engulfs all whose lives touch the
sufferer's. It brings misunderstanding, fierce resentment, financial
insecurity, disgusted friends and employers, warped lives of blameless
children, sad wives and parents—anyone can increase the list.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (There Is A Solution) p. 18

Thought to Ponder
Right actions for the future are the best
apologies for wrong ones in the past.

Good Morning all. My name is Lou and I am an alcoholic. Just like was said, time takes time. I have 3 beautiful grown children who I hurt deeply. Over the years I have made my amends but I know there is still dysfunction in their lives. This is due largely to the fact that they did not want anything to do with recovery. I got the old, "drinking was your problem, not ours." Today I am responsible for my own recovery and not theirs. I still from time to time feel a deep hurt for the things I can't undo. When those feelings creep up on me I turn it over to God and ask for His magical healing powers. In a short period of time I begin to feel better and just continue to develop a healthy relationship with them. I love God with all my heart and I love my family just as much. His healing powers have served us all well over the years and I am so grateful to Him and the program for giving me my life back with them every day. Thanks Guys.
