Friday 20 April

Kate is just beginning to enjoy herself for the first time in her life. Each week she checks in with a support group to tell them how things are going for a recovering alcoholic.
I've heard this before. Its quite tortured, but I found it very moving last time I heard it and I always love listening to stuff about alcoholics.
Just thought you might be interested. Its on Radio 4. Theres a link on the sidebar if you want to listen to it online instead.

- I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.
