    [​IMG] The great mystery is: “Why do some of us die alcoholic deaths, fighting to preserve the ‘independence’ of our ego, while others seem to sober up effortlessly in A.A.?” Help from a Higher Power, the gift of sobriety, came to me when an otherwise unexplained desire to stop drinking coincided with my willingness to accept the suggestions of the men and women of A.A. I had to surrender, for only by reaching out to God and my fellows could I be rescued.

    As the abused daughter of an alcoholic, I can tell you that I prayed for that for my father everyday. The difference is that you wanted to stop. I commend you. I offer you my sincerest congratulations for standing up and taking control of your life. And letting others have their lives back.
