Admit or Fantasy - “If you don’t admit you have a problem, you are still in fantasy. You are still in blindness!” Don Russell – Sept. 21, 2007.

As an alcoholic we think the world is from our point of view, how we live our life and how we feel. We form an opinion about life, work, people, social activities, and that becomes our world. When we added booze or drugs to our lives our fears, insecurities, worries, stress, and how we valued ourselves immediately disappeared. At that moment in time, alcoholism was born in us. Whatever pleased us was normal to us. After a while feeling good became more important than family, work, sports, and it started to consume our life.

The hardest thing to do is to admit that we cannot do this anymore, our life is out of control and we cannot go back to our addiction.

My commitment today is to not hold on to secrets and fantasies which will lead me back to my addiction and old lifestyle

Daily reading for September 23 from “As If I Was In Your Office…”

Disease vs. Joy and Happiness -“You thought your self-will and running your own life was happiness.” Fr. Paul – Oct. 7, 2009.

The disease takes over our lives. If we are alcoholic, we are never satisfied, never content, need more money, more power, more freedom, more booze, more women, more, more. That is who we are. That is what the disease is. It is selfishness with hatred and resentments which get worse and worse with more and more of them day after day. We have no control over thoughts, feelings and emotions like hate, self-pity, revenge, and we cannot live that way. We need to drink or drug to get rid of the pain, the confusion, and the turmoil in our heads.

A spiritual problem has to have a spiritual solution. The program is based on love and forgiveness. If we want help, they can help us open our heart and open our mind so we can have joy, happiness, loving friendships, and relationships in our life.

My commitment today is to have true happiness through working my program.

Friendship - “Friendships are about bonding and forgiveness!” Fr. Paul – Jan. 16, 2008.

Growing up with our fears, insecurities and jealousies where we never believed that much in others or ourselves resulted in keeping to ourselves quite a lot. We found it very difficult to let people inside, even parents, brothers, sisters, or others. We never really talked about ourselves, what we felt or what was on our minds. That is an alcoholic.

When we come to a place like Brentwood it is the life of the fellowship to let people in. We create a bond with him or her. We need to form bonds with family and have a bond with one another. We need to not be afraid to let the other person in on our good points and our weaknesses. We are not meant to not need one another. If there is unforgiveness in our heart, it will prevent us from bonding and having true friends in our life.

My commitment today is to ask for forgiveness in my friendships so I can bond with people.

Featured Testimonial

Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!
