To return to a society. . . . . .
My recovery began when I had a spiritual experience so profound that my desire to drink alcohol was removed from me, so that to drink the smallest drop made me quite ill. My sobriety has therefore continued but I've now, after my experience found myself entering a phase of,'spiritual depression', that whilst continuing to function as a human being has removed me from society, as if the pendulum has swung to far the other way, as often happens with reformed smokers. The,'Big Book' mentions that ,'the object of the exercise' in sobriety is to return to a society that once rejected us! Fundemental Buddhism, which is,'The science of the ming', let's not forget that and therefore allies to the 12 steps, talks about,'the Third Way'. I now realise I must not forget these things and take a realistic perspective, as an old Zen Master said,'You can reach the highest level of meditation, but you still have to remember your zip (post) code', then again, may be that was me?
