If you’re an alcoholic, it’s important to find a support group of people who understand what you are going through. You can’t do this alone.
I know because I’m in the same boat and my life is so much better now that I have found others who know what’s happening to me.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been sober for five days or fifty years, there are always moments when temptation strikes hard and fast. How will you react?

Having learned to live so happily, we’d show everyone else how. . . . Yes, we of A.A. did dream those dreams. How natural that was, since most alcoholics are bankrupt idealists. . . . So why shouldn’t we share our way of life with everyone?TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 156
When I became sober, the first thing that came to mind was ‘what am I going to do about all this excess baggage?’
The thoughts of grandiose days drinking returned and it seemed like a full time job just staying away from alcohol.
But as soon one day turned into two then three-I started seeing how coming out clean helped others in more ways than just physical recovery because they could focus on their primary purpose which is staying dry or getting rid if addiction without any outside distractions distracting them while doing so!
It is a great privilege to witness the change in others that occurs when they learn of this treatment.
As I have been privileged, so am I obligated to share my experience with all who will listen and let them know there’s hope for recovery from alcoholism if they’re willing to take it.
