The simple truth about me

I love the succinctness and plain honesty of today's entry from Daily Reflections:
The Gift of Bonding

Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will.
Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 63

Many times in my alcoholic state, I drank to establish a bond between myself and others, but I succeeded only in establishing the bondage of alcoholic loneliness. Through the A.A. way of life, I have received the gift of bonding—with those who were there before me, with those who are there now, and with those yet to come. For this gracious gift from God, I am forever grateful.
I can so identify!
