My higher power is omnipotent, all powerful, understanding, glorious, kind and loving.
Hi, my name is Kristin.
I think my grandfather was an alcoholic.
I’ve heard that you don’t have to drink to be an alcoholic; you can be alcoholic in your actions, thoughts, and words by having the disease in your blood line.
I would like to know who, if there is any one person living, has not been affected by alcoholism in some way?
I have recovered from some of the effects of the disease.
I have had joy. I have had a lot of pain, but what I have discovered is that now, knowing what I know in recovery, I am responsible for my thoughts, my actions, and my feelings.
With the help of my higher power, ACOA fellow travelers, and mostly, more than anything, God, I am whole. Holy. And can become free from the disease any time that I ask and want to be. It can be every second of my life, every minute and every hour.
Yours in service.
Kristin B, Philadelphia.
