...about finding this community!
I`m sorry, I don`t speak english well, but I´m learning, learning learning...
Hope your can understand me and see my points...
I´m 52 years old and from germany, from Berlin.
I´m a recovering alcoholic. I don`t drink alc since 2013.Because I want to help other alcoholics I work for the journal:http://www.trokkenpresse.de.
, you can look at that, if you are interested.
It isn`t easy, to live without alcohol, but it is possible. "The power of now" is my partner on this way. I have the spirit, the most toughts of this book inside me today, i can feel that and try to live in my now... I`m on the way...
But I can not, can not link Tolle`s words about sicknesses with my own psychical illness called alkoholism...
For living without alc we patients have learnt to say: I`m Anja, I´m alcoholic.
We have learnt to be careful while every minute in our life, because each drop, molecule of alc can be the reason for an "fall-back".
I always have the have the sickness in my mind, the doctors say... it shall be veryvery important for my survival.
BUT: I believe, that is so unconscious!
Since I internalise each word of Tolle in his first book I lost the feeling to need alc more and more, the root of my addiction.
I don`t have any reasons to drink in the now.
Can your see my point or is my english to bad???
At the moment I miss an answer, I don`t know how can I handle that.
Thanks for answers!!!!
