Without Defense

flowers lowes 033


“The fact is
that most
for reasons
yet obscure,
have lost the
power of
choice in drink.
We are without
defense against
the first drink.”


BB p 24


My brain is on backwards.

“Normal”  people recoil from alcohol

because their brain and their senses tell them

that it is a poison, it smells foul, it taste terrible

and the brain and stomach will probably

want to throw up if they drink the stuff.

It is an acquired taste, it makes me feel awesome,

and I’m addicted to the stuff.

Only by complete abstinence,

a reliance on the grace of God

and the fellowship of A.A.

can I act like a sane and normal person

by not picking 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.
