The First Drink



“These observations

would be academic

and pointless

if our friend never took

the first drink,

thereby setting

the terrible cycle

in motion.”


BB p 23


What was observed is that once the first drink is picked up

the physical compulsion to continue drinking has begun.

One is too many and a thousand is never enough,

and the terrible cycle is a never ending tread mill.

Today, do not set the terrible cycle in motion,

do not pick up the first drink.

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.
