A.A. Big Book Acceptance is the answer to ALL of my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation- some fact of my life- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept my life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes
Great post Erfra.
Many thanks to you for the words of wisdom and to all for the positivity and encouragement on these pages.
24 hours more please
10.40am in Brisbane, Australia
Happy Sunday to all!

Caaaaaaakkkeeeee!!!!

Erfra, what a great post. Very powerful. Thank you.

I'm in for another 24 hours! Back on track with checking in.

Went to a going away party last night for a work friend. Someone ordered a daquiri and they kept messing it up. When they got it right, they brought her a huge one. Then a minute later, they brought out another one for free. At a table of 20, for some reason he said, "for you!" And put it in front of me. Whaaaaat? Nobody there knows I'm an alkie except my wife, who thankfully sat right next to me. We just laughed amongst ourselves and passed it around for folks to taste. Problem solved.

Day 1 again - AV wormed in when my brand new washing machine broke (my son put his school trousers into the washing machine without emptying the pockets). As I mopped the floor it started whispering away about how I deserved a drink and it was my son's fault. Of course it wasn't his fault (the drinking, not the washing machine breaking!)

In 9 hours time I will be sitting nervously in the car outside a building in a nearby town watching AA members go in and plucking up the courage to do it myself. This is a closed meeting so can't take anyone with me for moral support.
