“The doctor’s theory

that we have an allergy

to alcohol interests us.

It explains many things

for which we cannot

otherwise account.”




It is  NOT  a lack of will power.

Even though I thought I was educated

and smart enough to know myself,

I learned in AA that “I knew nothing.”

My sponsor reminds me that I probably

still know very little, but, I have learned

that the obsession and compulsion to drink,

the addiction to alcohol, was way beyond

my mental will powers to control.

Today, a spiritual tool bag helps me stay sober.

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.
