Introducing myself. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to do so.
Male 32 year old guy from Austria,
I recently happened to read the
autobiography of a recovering alcoholic, who went on to become a
minor showbiz-celebrity in the U.S.A.
Nothing to write home about, really.
But something was odd: When I came
across the part of the book where the protagonist was recalling his
rehab where he was evidentially going through a 12-step program and
his sponsor was insisting that his alcoholism was actually an illness
as opposed to a mere character flaw, I somehow felt deeply moved.
Something within me was resonating with
that statement, even to a point where I was almost wishing to be an
alcoholic myself (how weird is that?!), only to be able to
a.) put a finger on my problem and
b.) find someone who would tell me,
that the problem that had been obscuring my life for almost 20 years
now was not just a personal deficiency but an actual disease.
The problem being procrastination, of
I'm not going to start and tell you,
how many books I've read on the subject of procrastination, neither
am I going to elaborate on all the seminars I went to, trying to find
a solution (including talking to my dead ancestors or walking on
red-hot coal), many of you will probably be able to relate to what I
went through, anyway.
So, anyway, I need to wrap this up now,
I'm deeply grateful to have found this spot on the web, I'm a little
bit sorry that I can't meet up with you personally (at least for now)
and I hope I can find assistance, as well as be of service myself.
God bless you all.
