The phrase, probably describing the person sitting there, a chronic alcoholic, kept coming to mind. And what did Dr. Silkworth say about the chronic alcoholic? That he and other physicians thought that the chronic alcoholics were doomed. Unless they got the kind of help AA offers.

The same thing was said by the famous Dr. Carl Jung to the young man in front of him, in the “Solution” chapter in the BB. That he had the mind of a chronic alcoholic and he had never seen someone like him ever recover.

I can relate to the the description of a chronic alcoholic. That was me. I could not mentally or psychologically control alcohol. No matter what I thought or did. There was no such thing as will power for me. By myself I could not stop drinking and no one had to tell me that I was doomed. I knew that was what I was facing. And so too the young person sitting there.

Dr. Silkworth said that the only thing that would save a chronic alcoholic was a psychic change. Dr. Young was more specific. He said that the only way was a vital spiritual experience. And that’s exactly what AA offers every man and woman, who suffers from this disease. That’s is what I found in here.

What began the change for me was that I was so desperate I was willing to do anything. In total despair and near suicide, I came to this program and as a result underwent that total change in personality. A psychic change or a spiritual awakening. But I wanted it and was willing.

That’s what I told this person today. That unless they were suffering enough pain and the knowledge that death was what awaited them, if they continued drinking, to make them want this program, there probably wasn’t much hope for them. Alcohol has too much power over people like us. In the end it wins out, unless we are willing to surrender and make the necessary changes to our lives.

As a couple of men told their experiences of the death of friends of theirs were the results of continued alcoholic drinking. I’ve had the same experience over the years. I’ve watched all kinds of awful deaths take place. Like the 12&12 points out, it is here that we learn the fatal nature of this disease. We need to become open minded and willing as only the dying can be.

Why am I thinking this way and why would I and some others speak in such a tough way to a person like this. Simply what Dr. Silkworth himself said, that frothy emotional appeal rarely works. The truth may be harsh, but often it’s that, which gets the attention of someone, whose body, mind, spirit is still being dominated by alcohol. We can only hope.

Anyway, that’s pretty much what was running through my mind at the meeting and when I got home. Still thinking about our primary purpose. To stay sober and try to help another alcoholic. And for me to remember that once an alcoholic always and alcoholic.
