Responses to C. C.

In reading the May issue I felt the need to respond to the letter from Carol in Kent, Ohio. First off it never surprises me to hear that someone from the program has gone back out. After all, we are alcoholics.

I do not feel it is a mistake to have gone back out. It takes what it takes to get this program, and it may have taken that additional twenty-four-hour slip to convince you of your powerlessness over alcohol. The mistake now, however, would be to let your ego get in the way of your recovery.

So to anyone who has had a slip: get right back to meetings and listen for what you missed the first time, and "Keep coming back, it works."
