It's those mad thoughts that you have suddenly out of nowhere that tell you you want a drink and then suddenly you can't think of anything but having a drink and the inevitable happens. Alcoholism is an allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind. We cure the allergy of the body by abstaining from it.....but long after being sober, the obsession of the mind is still there.

One of the truly wonderful thing about working the 12 Steps of AA is that the obsession to drink alcohol is removed.

I heard this the other day about thoughts.....

A thought is like a train which pulls into the station and the doors open. You can choose to get on board or you can stay where you are, let the doors shut and the train move away without you.
