Slipping without the drink

Posted 08-07-2012 at 04:22 AM by eddie73

I do this many times over the course of a week. They are small petty slips that mark the trait of being human. It is where I try too hard, or secret away resentments, or isolate, or sleep in or procrastinate, or stop trying at all. There is a good list there.

I slip often and in small ways. I slip in bigger ways sometimes too. I slip in very big ways and these are the times I realize that sobriety is a thing that does not have to include alcohol being involved. I can be very drunk in my thinking and be sober years. this is a very important point to make. This point is something that I am only aware of recently. i feel that I have read about this, but never actually really thought about it that is until now. I have to slip without alcohol and be aware of it to know about it.

i feel that I am going thru a major slip at the moment. Things within the AA movement have really pissed me in a big way. There is a temptation to run from it. But the good advice of a friend I have never met suggests that I mix my meetings and not get to bogged down in the petty politics of the home meeting. Cheers pal!
