When Do I Lose the Urge to Drink?
WHILE I have been in the fellowship of AA this important question is one I have heard uttered by new and old members alike. "When do I lose the urge to drink?"
It appears to me that a number of factors enter into the why of this question. If we will remind ourselves of the key to sobriety, we will have a starting place. Let us be honest with ourselves, open-minded and willing to do something about what we find. I have found in my experience that after I completely surrendered and accepted the First Step, I no longer had the urge.
Why did this come about?
