The “Slipper” Needs Understanding
“Slips can often be charged to rebellion; some of us are more rebellious than others. Slips may be due to the illusion that one can be “cured” of alcoholism. Slips can also be charged to carelessness and complacency. Many of us fail to ride out these periods sober. Things go fine for two or three years — then the member is seen no more. Some of us suffer extreme guilt because of vices or practices that we can’t or won’t let go of. Too little self-forgiveness and too little prayer – well, this combination adds up to slips.
“Then some of us are far more alcohol-damaged than others. Still others encounter a series of calamities and cannot seem to find the spiritual resources to meet them. There are those of us who are physically ill. Others are subject to more or less continuous exhaustion, anxiety, and depression. These conditions often play a part in slips – sometimes they are utterly controlling.”
