Alcoholism required me to drink, whether I wanted to or not.
Insanity dominated my life and was the essence of my disease.
It robbed me of the freedom of choice over drinking and, therefore,
robbed me of all other choices. When I drank, I was
unable to make effective choices in any part of my life and
life became unmanageable.
I ask God to help me understand and
accept the full meaning of the disease of alcoholism.
