AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

We realize some men are thoroughly bad-intentioned, that no amount of patience will make any difference. An alcoholic of this temperament may be quick to use this chapter as a club over your head. Don’t let him get away with it. If you are positive he is one of this type you may feel you had better leave. Is it right to let him ruin your life and the lives of your children? Especially when he has before him a way to stop his drinking and abuse if he really wants to pay the price. – Pg. 108 – To Wives

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Some addicts have returned to using mind-affecting chemicals because they tried to ‘cope forever’ and couldn’t face never, ever using anything again. But you can maintain abstinence by just not picking up that first dose of anything NOW. Forget forever.

Give me the understanding that what I cannot do for a lifetime, I may easily do right now.

Denial

Denying this disease does not make it go away. I have watched this disease wrap its tentacles around three generations now. I have watched each generation pretend that it wasn’t all that bad, that it didn’t do all that much damage, that they didn’t really need help. But they did. I have seen my family not drink or drug and imagine that that meant they we were not sick. They couldn’t see that the relationship issues that we all suffer from are related to this disease. This disease takes many form because addiction is traumatizing to all concerned, and trauma creates emotional and psychological problems that do not necessarily get better by themselves.
