Many people have asked me to share my experience strength and hope with them as it relates to alcoholism and drug addiction.
I believe more is being revealed to me – even now. It has been written that “people drink because they like the effect produced by alcohol.” I agree with this statement to the degree that I certainly enjoyed the effect at some point. It wasn’t always like that.
At first the effect was similar to being picked up and spun around – that dizzy light-headed feeling. Certainly as a kid I had no control of the effects of being spun around or alcohol. I had to become accustom to it and learned how to manage the feeling. After all, drinking was a natural part of my life – as it was all around me and in my home.
Toward the end of my drinking – it took more alcohol and drugs to get me stable and even more to get me tipsy and high. It was illusive for sure. Nothing ever really got me feeling good for very long.
It was the time in between the beginning and the end that I enjoyed the effect produced by alcohol – that was so short-lived and I didn’t realize it until I embraced a spiritual way of living that was that has granted me a joy-filled life.
