Talk With Another

“We have come to believe

He would like us to keep

our heads in the clouds with Him,

but that our feet ought

to be firmly planted on earth.

That is where

our fellow travelers are,

and that is where

our work must be done.”


BB p 130


With so much gratitude to/for a Higher Power
who has removed the compulsion and obsession to drink
it would be so easy to concentrate on becoming
a better member of society, however, the book
suggests that to keep that pink cloud feeling
one must work with another alcoholic.

Today, enjoy the serenity and peace of mind
however, to keep the feelings follow the suggestions;
don’t drink, work a step, pray, meditate
and talk with another drunk.

The easiest place to find another alcoholic
to talk to is at a meeting.

Recovery is to talk with another
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


It’s Not Them

“Where other people

were concerned,

we had to drop

the word  ‘blame’

from our speech

and thought.”


Twelve Steps and
Twelve Traditions, p. 47



The alcoholic is afraid to look into the mirror,
petrified to do any soul searching
because they know that they will not like what they see,
a soul that has lost its way.

Life is just so much easier
when you can blame someone else
for all of life’s inadequacies.
Sobriety is to be responsible
and life is surprisingly less complicated when one
does not distort their thinking with alcohol.
Be honest, be responsible, don’t drink, don’t think,
go to meetings, read the Big Book and learn to
enjoy a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to drop the blame
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
