Glad you are here! And glad you found your old Big Book! Is it a 4th Ed.? That is the newest one, but the basic text, the first 164 pages are the same.

When I was sitting alone in the dark with 2 beers back in 2009, I heard the words in my mind, "pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization." Oddly I knew they were from Chapter 3 of the Big Book. I knew I needed to get back to AA, but I sure did not want to! It took me a while to actually get back and it was a very painful time for me - "a belly full of beer and a head full of AA" not a very fun place to be. But it was desperation that drove me to finally get to a meeting and the meeting gave me the courage to not pick up a drink in between meetings.

Don't leave before the miracle happens! Glad you lived to tell the tale!

Hello and welcome Marc.

Your on the right track. Reaching out and asking for help is one of the hardest we as alcoholics have to do.
Stick with it, your worth it ;)
