The Bondage Of AA

I may get some negative feedback for this.. but here we go. 

Everyone seems to think of being sober as a way to describe themselves or someone else abstaining from alcohol or drugs. This is true but this is a latent definition. The true meaning of sobriety is having a sound mind, body, and soul. Like a baby at birth. Of course we are not perfect as human beings, but this is something I work toward on a daily basis. I can abstain from the booze and still be a cold hearted bastard. Have you heard the phrase “Free me from the bondage”? Being free from bondage is what I thrive for in sobriety. “I do not want to be a slave to that vodka any more. It controls my life and I want out”! Why would I want to free myself from one bondage just to be slaved by another. I can’t get over how many people I have seen become slaves to A.A. It’s one thing to hit a meeting here and there on an occasion… it’s totally different when you have to wake up daily and revolve your activities and schedule around when and where a meeting is. You are inadvertently revolving your life around not drinking.. as far as I am concerned you are still a slave to the alcohol if you have to think about it that much. I guess it’s a much safer and healthier addiction to trade considering.. but come on.. How are you supposed to enjoy life to the fullest without truly being set free of bondage? I was just about as sick and addicted as they come. Different strokes for different folks I guess. I urge you to just not think about alcohol as if it was just another car passing on the road. You may see it, but it just zooms by. Don’t let this disease consume your life.. I urge you to free yourself of total bondage. Be at peace with yourself.
