Tomaj Kozak my brother’s friend in action, thanks for letting me use these images for todays post 🙏🏻
Responsibility. Freedom from alcoholic insanity is a question of responsibility. We cannot be responsible for something we did not create. We thought of ourselves as something worthless at the centre of the universe. We had tried to commit suicide in many ways, both emotionally and physically, thinking to ourselves “Maybe this time they will see what is going on.” But nothing changed and neither did our perpetrators. We spent all of this energy for what? In ACA, we learn that we are the ones who have to change. To do so, we first need to let go of the responsibility for the alcoholic insanity. It has always been unmanageable, with or without us. We start to see that we deserve to have a chance at a sane life, even though we aren’t quite sure what that would be like. We look out before us and see there is light ahead. We can’t see what it is, but we also can’t stop moving towards it. It feels good and warm. That scares us at first, but it also feels new and exciting. We put down our shame and our addictions that no longer serve us. We release our character defences. It is time to see what this thing called life is about. We allow ourselves to walk forward. —————————
Those who lose today may win tomorrow. Sex addiction makes us losers. Our compulsive behavior and our fear of intimacy have made us lose friends, lose touch with our Higher Power and lose our sense of ourselves in place of shame and isolation. But in our groups we begin to rediscover ourselves through a new relationship with others and with our Higher Power. We accept that we are part of worlds greater than ourselves, and we tap into the power that comes from love.
