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.

I Begin Again
I know so many of the tools by heart, from being a long-timer. And yet, here I am, at a crossroads in my recovery and I know how easy it is for me to be judged for not working a "good-enough" program. Let me today just shed my fear and my own judgment of myself. Let me begin my program again, and not deny myself the hope I would extend to any newcomer that comes in the door.
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!
