I had to admit and still do, that on my best day, I could do nothing about my loved-one's drinking. I could only change myself, learn to be a better person by applying the steps to my life directly.
Admitting is no easy task, yet, it took the burden away. I could let someone else know that these thing were happening, and that I was living a crazy life in which I accepted crazy things.
And you know, through fellowship of people at all different levels of understanding, I found that I was not alone.
Admitting is the first step, seeing the insanity is the second, seeking God as we know him and letting go of the illusion of power. That's what I have done in step one.
Thank you for being there. Love you all,
