“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.” My name is Danielle and I am an alcoholic. That is the most powerful thing I will be writing tonight in this issue. It took me a long time to concede to my inner most self that I was an alcoholic. When I tried working the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous the first, second, and third time, I was always anxious to get steps one, two, and three over with so I could move on to the juicy steps. Yes, I’m an alcoholic… yes, I have a God…NEXT! I didn’t really believe that I was doomed to an alcoholic death without the spiritual solution you nice people had in Alcoholics Anonymous. I wasn’t truly surrendered and ready to go to any lengths. I wasn’t ready to be honest with myself and others about having no physical control over my drinking. It wasn’t until August 13th, 2012 that I was ready to do something different.
