It took me a while to become ready for a radical life change in order to achieve sobriety.
When I was struggling to get sobriety and an old-timer told me to go to 90 meetings in 90 days, I thought he must be crazy - literally, like OCD. When I became prepared to be that "crazy," if that was what it took, the change was made. I crossed the threshold of sobriety when I moved from viewing lust as one of my many problems to THE problem, which had to be removed at all costs. Seen in that way, it was worth putting my entire energies behind.
