  1. As a recovering alcoholic for a number of years, I can Identify with the absolute necessity for counseling. In retrospect, my drinking was but a symptom. Using the analogy of an iceberg, my drinking was 10% of the problem. The more I drank, the deeper i buried my feelings. The more I tried to escape, the sicker I became.

    Through the Grace of God, I have sobriety and my life back. The number one requirement of this fantastic journey of recovery was the necessity of getting honest with myself, another trusted person, and God. That means getting honest with all of my feelings. Feelings are just that, they are feelings. They are an indication of what is going on with me. If I was angry with someone, I had to be honest about it. “I am angry at —” I used to tell myself, “If I was a good moral Christian, I shouldn’t be feeling that way. God would not approve of it.” In other words, it would be a “sin” to feel that way.
    Until I become honest with myself, I could not heal. I can not heal if I do not acknowledge it first.
