This helped me, it's by David Stewart, MD who wrote the book "thirst from freedom"

“Few people realize that sobriety is an action of insights and skills far beyond mere abstinence. Sobriety is a creative discipline in the art of freedom of growth and of love. To be yourself is to become yourself.”

I think I got the idea for the book somewhere on this site. Only trouble is I'm an agnostic and the constant references to higher power, God, spiritual this and that, makes me feel like I'm at church or religious ed. (I was dragged to Church all of my childhood and I feel like it carries a lot of emotional baggage for me.) I understand that "God" in recovery doesn't have to mean God per se, but it still bothers me.

Anyway, that's the 12 steps... I just don't know whether the 12 step approach is appropriate for me and my particular drinking history. Most effective for me is "here's a picture of your liver..." I just don't want to die. (yet)
