> The essential idea at the core of NA and AA is that you can't beat this stuff by yourself. You know that compulsion you get - the single-minded thinking that leads you inevitably to use one more time? The completely rational and plausible narrative your mind builds in order to use again after your last time?
> "Just one more time, then I'm done. One more time, what's the harm. I won't go all the way this time, I'll pull out early. How can I live this way if I'm always thinking about it, might as well do it. Oh man I'd do anything just to have one more. It won't be so bad after, really."

> Every nerve in your body, every neuron and cell seems oriented to the idea of using one more time. And eventually you give in and do it. And feel the incomparable shame and self-loathing after you come down. And you promise yourself never again....until the need starts again.

> NA and AA believe you can't beat that by yourself, and they're right. You need other people and you also need help outside of what other people can give you. Every day, hour, minute, second is a battle against it. Your sponsor can't be with your 24/7.

Yeah, ok. And, I regret to say that all of what you wrote is what puts MANY MANY people off from bothering with it all. I mean, its old fashioned! I cant even make sense of half that stuff! And I consider myself a good fluent reader! This is the 21 Cetury, no? Than why is it not written as so?

Guess Ill just have to accustom to living in hell. Starting to sound a lot less easier infact.
