It Doesn’t Work



“This is the how

and why of it.

First of all,

we had to quit

playing God.

It didn’t work.”


BB p 62



Today, there is a God, and it is not me.

It was my show; I was the producer, the director

and the leading star and eventually

when reality hit me square in the face,

when I realized the the critics were right,

the show flopped and I was forced to choose between

closing the show or to face jails, institutions or death.

A Higher Power did for me what I could not do for myself.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
