I remember telling a friend years ago that I didn’t have a drinking problem, I had a stopping problem. We laughed. It was true, but there was something else going on, something that never occurred to me until I came to AA. I had a starting problem too.
No matter how often I stopped, or for how long, I always started drinking again.
Thought to Ponder . . .
If we want to quit drinking/drugging/acting out, we are going to have to quit drinking/drugging/acting out!
