Lifelines

In this small space are many of my lifelines. But not another human being. I need the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.

I am not feeling well again today, but I am going to work anyway. I stayed at home yesterday and by last night I was a little stir crazy. This morning when I prayed, I cried like a small child to my Heavenly Father. I need to get out of here and be with other people.

"Mental and emotional difficulties are sometimes very hard to take while we are trying to maintain sobriety. Yet we do see, in the long run, that transcendence over such problems is the real test of the AA way of living. Adversity gives us more opportunity to grow than does comfort or success." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 234
