Total Acceptance

He cannot picture life without alcohol. some day he will be unable to 
imagine life either with alcohol or without it. Then he will know 
loneliness such as few
do. He will be at the jumping-off place. He will wish for the end.

Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 152

Only an alcoholic can understand the exact meaning of a statement like 
this one. The double standard that held me captive as an active 
alcoholic also filled me
with terror and confusion; "If I don't get a drink I'm going to die," 
competed with "If I continue drinking it's going to kill
me." Both compulsive thoughts pushed me ever closer to the bottom. That 
bottom produced a total acceptance of my alcoholism---with no 
whatsoever---and one that was absolutely essential for my recovery. It 
was a dilemma unlike anything I had ever faced, but as I found out later
on, a necessary
one if I was to succeed in this program.
