You are not powerless! A new paradigm for overcoming alcoholism/addiction is long overdue. For far too long, the recovery community has put forward the notion that the best that anybody suffering from this horrid condition can hope for, is to achieve the status of a "recovering alcoholic". The biggest proponent of this ideology is the organization of Alcoholics Anonymous which puts forth the notion that in order to maintain sobriety one has to live with their disease "one day at a time" for eternity. You do not have to admit your powerlessness or turn your will and life over to any higher power, be that God or AA. The "higher power" to overcome any addiction lies within the individual. The hard truth is the fact that any addiction is a choice. the good news is that the universe bestowed upon the human race the gift of free will. You and you alone have both the right and the responsibility to create your own reality. You have the freedom to recover and within these pages you will be given practical ideas about how to; *Better control the internal dialog that takes place in your mind. *Put the past in its proper perspective and use it as a teaching tool as opposed to allowing it to keep you stuck, or full of guilt and fear. *Develop better listening and thinking skills. *Accept the world as it is, in the present, with an eye towards the future. *Become a life-long learner and evolve. A quick word about the author, Rolf Ankermann; Hi, I'm Rolf and I'm an ex-alcoholic. I am NOT powerless nor have I surrendered my will and my life to God, AA or any other higher power for that matter. I have simply made a decision, through the power of free will, to evolve and leave the bottle behind.
