fini has the same thoughts as myself.
the thread was started with talk of withdrawls,then wishing to go to a detox center,talk of insecurities,fears,low self esteem......and now want to sit back,watch tv, and spend time with cat.
if you truly wantto stop drinking for good,yer gonna have to discipline yourself to do the actions for recovery. tv and cat time arent actions for recovery.
my favorite reading from the 24 hours a day book

AA Thought for the Day
Keeping sober is the most important thing in my life. The most important decision I ever made was my decision to give up drinking. I am convinced that my whole life depends on not taking that first drink. Nothing in the world is as important to me as my own sobriety. Everything I have, my whole life, depends on that one thing.

Can I afford ever to forget this, even for one minute?

Meditation for the Day
I will discipline myself. I will do this disciplining now. I will turn out all useless thoughts. I know that the goodness of my life is a necessary foundation for its usefulness. I will welcome this training, for without it God cannot give me this power. I believe that this power is a mighty power when it is used in the right way.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may face and accept whatever discipline is necessary. I pray that I may be fit to receive Godís power in my life.
