more stuff I identify with

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the wisdom and words contained in the Big Book ...........

"Men and women drink essentially because they like the effect produced by alcohol.  The sensation is so elusive that, while they admit it is injurious, the cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false.  To them, the alcoholic life seems the only normal one.  They are restless, irritable and discontented, unless they can again experience the sense of ease and comfort which comes at once by taking a few drinks."

I so identify with this.  Each sentence describes me!  

for the awareness of the sentence above that says that my life seemed to be normal.  I think I knew my drunkenness wasn't quite normal, but I just didn't care.

"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."

I didn't care either. I wonder where our "care" was?

I so didn't know the true from the false that I wonder how reliable my memory is. I remember crafting stories in my mind for how I would remember things. God knows what the truth really is!

I've been restless, irritable and discontent but not because of drinking.
