Weaving my personal recovery using the fabric of Emotions Anonymous and the healing strands of Alanon.
I'm learning H.O.W. to calm the chaos when my "dry" drunk wreaks havoc.

Step One leads to Step Two
Admitting powerlessness has, for many, been a tough call. It was for me as well, especially as I got to feeling better. But, I can also admit powerlessness now, even when I am on the road to healing. Especially there. Because by letting go of the need to control, I find peace of mind in working with my Higher Power. The power of H.O.W. is not by my will alone--rather it is harnessed by my willingness to let go of the reins and let God be in charge. That is the force of sanity in my life...
I am a member of Emotions Anonymous, which adapts AA's 12 steps for recovery from alcoholism, to recovery from emotional illness. Sojourning in Al-anon, a program for family members of recovering alcoholics, has helped me in dealing with my family, which was impacted by borderline personality disorder. Feel free to read!
