I just read this article about Lindsay Lohan, and as I always do after reading about someone unable to overcome their addiction, I think, 'But for the grace of God go I.' It may seem crazy to someone on the outside, that she would drink again knowing that the alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet will catch her. This is the nature of addiction; she has lost the ability to choose. Alcoholism is cunning, baffling & powerful, and there is a reason we remind ourselves of that fact at all our meetings. I know that I lose the ability to choose as soon as I take that first drink. The beast takes over. I pray that Lindsey is able to beat her addiction someday.
