After years of not being able to stop drinking, he came to understand the importance of the Third Step

Drinking was a millstone around my neck.

God really hated me. At least that's what I thought towards the end of my drinking. Why else wouldn't he answer my plea for help; why did he ignore me?

Drinking was no longer fun and exciting, it had grown painful, and was a millstone around my neck. I had to have it; I was hooked. I was no longer in love with alcohol. I had grown to hate it and wanted out. But I couldn't stop, no matter what, or how hard I tried.
