Today I begin this week talking about how I begin my days with a few simple good influences to get me going on the right foot. I also share just a little more about what happened when I finally acknowledged my powerlessness and un-manageability.
In the tradition of AA and the 12 Steps speakers will share what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now. This is what happened for me. Three little words changed the course of my life.
I was trapped within a vicious circle of my own making and then along came a baby and more and more events were causing me to evaluate my life and the un-manageability I was causing.
AA step one usually requires everyone to hit their “bottom.” Its the circumstances that cause an addict or alcoholic to evaluate their situation recognize their problem and their illness and make a decision to seek help. These are some of the events that stood out for me which in turn lead me to find my bottom, in other words to say enough is enough.
The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions. For me this was a vicious circle of events that lead me around and around never finding a solution to my addiction and my problems.
In this episode of my tale I share how I was beginning to see my powerlessness and manageability.
AA tradition states to speakers to tell what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now. I’ve been doing that but feel maybe I’ve been telling it for too long. I questioned a mentor and he helped me see that the story will be told when it’s told and to keep at it. Thank you.
In today’s telling of what it was like I share a story of being held at gun point. I explain that what makes this story frightening is my reaction to the event.
This one you just gotta listen to, I don’t have a short description.
The ongoing step one story of my descent into the hell realms.
