3/28/1996, coincidentally the day I was going to commit suicide, but my 3 year old walked in on me.  Haven't had a drink since.

I am Leslie and I am an alcoholic. I don't have a week yet. But I had yesterday and with AA and submitting to my Higher Power I WILL HAVE TODAY. God Grant me Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I CAN, and THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. The cause of my drinking is FEAR OF INFERIORITY. In the rooms, I find people that were just as selfish as I am. AND they were just as afraid. I love this program. I love the simple steps....are they too complicated, "WE THINK NOT"!

I got to my first AA meeting on Saturday 3 June 1995, but took my last drink on June 1. I was a dry drunk for about 4 years and then had another rock bottom as a direct result of my still insane and destructive behaviours (don't knock the spelling, I'm British). Suicide was very attractive but that inner voice told me to share my darkest secret to an AA couple. My recovery started from there by working the programme (see above!!) to the best of my ability

Thanks for sharing, DenisU, keep it going and continue to work the program.  Attend as many meetings as you physically can each week, get a sponsor, read the Book and perform service to others.  ODAAT.

 

This has worked for me and countless others, through the grace of God, this program and people like you that I am alive today.

Nov. 27, 1990

Excellent!  Keep up the enthusiasm!  Keep going to meetings, read the Big Book, get a sponsor, and work the steps. 

Let God into your life and thank Him every Morning, Noon & Night for the gift of sobriety, one day at a time.
