. . .In All Our Affairs

"We remembered always that our sex powers were God-given and therefore good, neither to be used lightly or selfishly nor to be despised and loathed." Bill W. in Alcoholics Anonymous

FOR SOME reason, probably a sense of delicacy, others at meetings rarely speak of sexual insanity, which certainly marked my personal voyage to AA. I wouldn't expect a "sexalog," the infantile practice of recounting this or that alleged conquest. (I say "alleged" for reasons which, I hope, will become clear shortly.) But, for me, sex and alcohol are so interwoven that I truly cannot separate them. By "sexual insanity," I refer to that irrational conduct on my part which was somehow, in some fashion, going to satisfy whatever the hell it was that bothered me.
