Since my friend Mike has been sober, he’s taken me to one of his AA meetings every so often.
I don’t struggle with alcohol, but I have my own compulsions and obsessions. In my opinion, every one of us is addicted to something and that those somethings can and do change, sometimes daily.
Simplyput, it’s about running from God and to everything and anything that’s not God. Some of our somethings are more socially acceptable and less physically damaging than other somethings, like drugs or alcohol, but they all play havoc with our souls.
