The fact I know and have fully wrapped my brain around that I am powerless over alcohol has kept me sober on many day. If I ever go to question how powerless I am all I have to do is take a quick look at my past...
-screaming, yelling, throwing things at the people I love
-peeing the bed
-not remembering what I said in the morning
-planning my life around alcohol
I have not done any of these things in sobriety.
You know why? Because I am Emily, and I am a recovered alcoholic. But I am only recovered if I remain spiritually fit, and remember that I am powerless.
