    “What we must recognize now is that we exult in some of our defects. We really love them” (12 Steps and 12 Traditions, p.66). Somebody or somethin’ done ya wrong?  Let’s stew on it.  After all, you’ve tried so hard for so long, earnestly doing what’s reasonable and right.  You had faith things would work out.  But then what did they do – this person or group or life in general?  Did they recognize the facts?  Did they acknowledge what was really going on, see their obligations, and grant you your just reward? No!  No, they did this other thing,…

    A big thing I am faced with is co-dependency…  I am co-dependent.  According to Mental Health America, “Co-dependency is a learned behavior that can be passed down from one generation to another. It is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as “relationship addiction” because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. The disorder was first identified about ten years ago as the result of…

The rules were simple, not tying knots and no letting go.  It was a best of two out of three contest in which we did not need the third try, we were stronger.  We all cheered and felt pretty good about ourselves.

  • Common Reasons of Alcoholism in Adults and How Detox Centers Can Help

    According to the American Psychological Association, the amount of alcohol that is classified as “moderate intake” is only 0.5 ounces, which is equivalent to 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer or 1.5 ounces of spirits. Anything beyond this already puts the person at risk of alcoholism or alcohol use disorder (AUD). A survey by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) found that one in 12 American adults is an alcoholic or alcohol abuser; that means they are regularly consuming more than the recommended amount. Unfortunately, NIAAA also found that the individuals…

    In 1939 at the New York World Trade Fair, famous sports brand Le Coq Sportif launches its new creation, the sweat suit, that the French dubbed, ‘The Sunday uniform.’  What Le Coq didn’t know was that the Sunday uniform was so damn fine it would eventually work its way into the rest of the week. 76 years later, on the other side of the planet as the leaves spoke autumn and the mercury screamed winter I got to sample its delights.

    The world calls me a recovering addict.  The Word of God calls me a sinner. It’s not uncommon that someone asks how long I’ve been clean.  What they mean to say is, ‘AA is full of folks with 30 days clean.’  …and they’re right.  It’s an uphill battle.  We are outnumbered and outgunned. Many can claim short term victory through programs and people, but everlasting victory is won only by surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Only He is able to grant victory over sin and release the weary sinner. Following salvation, the war continues.  The difference is that you’re on the…

    Miners used to carry caged canaries into coal mines to test for dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide collected in the mine. The gases would kill the canary before killing the miners, thus providing a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. I guess that’s where NORML got the name for their app here, although it’s not really for CO, it’s for THC. Canary Demo from Belles Farm on Vimeo. The app, called Canary, allows users to determine whether they’re in a suitable condition to drive. It runs through a battery of tests: remembering a sequence of numbers, balancing on one…

    We are all self-centered to a certain degree, it goes with the territory of being human. How can we not be? We are with ourselves 24 hours a day. Maybe that’s why a lot of people start drinking in the first place, it gives them a break. When your drinking becomes a bad habit, or an addiction, the self-absorption, the selfishness, self-indulgence, and narrow-mindedness just gets worse.

    Toward Alcohol When we hit bottom in our drinking careers, we’re pretty much forced to change.  We’re truly sick and tired of being sick and tired; we recognize, however faultily, that our way is not working.  We become teachable.  That is, we’re desperate enough to try out AA’s approach even though it feels foreign, artificial, and disorienting. For me this meant giving up the belief that I knew everything.  I’d always felt sure I could perceive the lay of the land in a snap and choose the best course, which I then acted on with chutzpah and a dash of…

    Words can be dead or alive.  My big, fat Webster’s dictionary devotes a full page to the word good, yet conveys almost nothing.  Definitions range from “making a favorable impression in terms of moral character” to “wholesome” or “noble and respectable.”    Words – nothing but lexical connections. Yet words can also be alive when they resonate with us.  Years ago at an AA meeting, for instance, I heard these: “Love from the heart is a one-way street.  It goes out.”  The guy saying this gestured from his chest into the room,…
