  1. Hi Eric,

    Thank you so much for your post. I can’t believe that I’m in exactly the same position as you are. You have given me inspiration to read the literature and get on to writing my fourth step today as well! God Bless you.

    I wish you all the best in your recovery.

    • Thank you George. I am grateful today that I can recognize the warning signs and take corrective measures. Instead of allowing things to get worse and then wonder where I went wrong. Its truly a blessing. Have a great day.
