I remember admitting to myself that I just might have a drinking problem. I justified it and said “but I’ll never be a crackhead “. Drinking and partying was fun for me until 1989 bc (before crack). That’s when getting high became a full time job. Now I became that crackhead that I said I would never be. I then justified it by saying “at least I’m not a junkie, I’ll never stick a needle in my body”. In 1990, I became that junkie. I was so full of shame, embarrassment, guilt and pain. I didn’t want anyone to know what was really going on in my life. I started doing things I said I would never do and becoming everything I said I would never become. Nobody is excluded from the devastating progressive disease of addiction. So glad I don’t have to live like that anymore. So glad that God showed me a way out through the 12 step program.
You can't keep something your not willing to give away.
