Awake to the Beast

I was an alcoholic and drug addict for fifteen years and tried so so many ways to stay sober. I could get sober, but never stay that way. And a buddy of mine intoduced me to AVRT and I woke up that the voice telling me to drink isn't me! It's the beast in me and it doesn't like that I know that. I tried an avenue of recovery for seven years and bounced in and out and never ever felt at peace in fact I felt worse and I told myself I was ill and sick and believed I was even though I was sober. I'm a week sober now and I feel at a peace I've never felt before. The beast is roaring at times and as soon as I shine the light of recognition on it, it loses its power. It comes at me from many angles, fear being one! I know longer believe I'm sick and diseased. I believe I'm recovered and feel free from bondage and free to live my life. And 'IT' just whispered as I type, 'you sure about that' HAHA!
