We who are in AA came because we finally gave up trying to control our
drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely.
Then we heard from other AA members that we were sick. (We thought so
for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same
feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We
found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of
alcoholism. We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us.|
Here is a questionnaire (pdf file) you can print out and attempt to answer honestly. Remember, there is no disgrace if facing up to the fact that you have a problem. Compare your results.
