Still lost? It's Your Decision, An Alternate Step
just may be the answer you are looking for. You have not yet found sanctuary from the devastation of alcoholism in the current forms of treatment available. You are not alone. You have tried Alcoholics Anonymous and they couldn't do it, and you are not a seeker of "Higher Powers" to save your butt. That leaves you in a dead zone most people will tell you is impossible to recover from. AA believes an alcoholic will never recover; you are forever in a recovery mode. Day by day. This author has a different view. AA can't help you. No higher power is going to help you. The author of this book can't help you.
Take a long hard look in a mirror. Although you look similar to the reflection staring back at you, what you see and how others see you are actually two different people.
So who has the best view of that image in the mirror? That answer may be a key to the end results you are searching for.
