Here, I am going to try to start opening up about my marriage to an alcoholic.

Thanks for sharing a little about yourself. If you can open that door of trust a tiny bit, you will be amazed at how much better you will feel sharing with others! Turning things over to a Higher Power was not easy for me at first. I was skeptical and didn't really believe my HP would help me. Finally, someone suggested that I ask my HP for "willingness" - willingness to do whatever it took to stay sober, willingness to take care of myself, willingness to trust in a Power greater than myself. It has been a process - and well worth it. Today, I ask my Higher Power for help in all aspects of my life. Before you can turn things over, it is okay to simply pray for help to do just that!

I am glad you have family that can help!

Remember, the second step says that we came to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity....yours allowed you to post a bit about yourself!!!
