A.A. Step 1: Am I an alcoholic?

Recommended Posts

Hey dawg, nice share.

I agree with you in that I came to the very slow and painful realization that I am powerless over alcohol. Not only once I pick up the first drink, but I am powerless 'over' picking up the first one.

The 'peculiar mental twist' as they call it.

That seems to be one thing people who don't get AA can't understand. I finally understand it and it makes sense to me. If I could just 'not drink' I never would have gone to AA in the first place, let alone hung around for as long as I have.
