I'm an alcoholic: when I drink, I lose control of my drinking/drug use...when I don't drink, I need to. Eventually, needing to always wins and I wind up drinking again even though I know how THAT always works out. It took a spiritual experience to change that.
That spiritual experience began when I got sober in AA in 2012.
I'm happy to share my experience with alcoholism and recovery with anyone who is interested or could be helped by it.
