A Certain Point

flowers lowes 051


“At a certain point

in the drinking of  every

alcoholic, he passes into

a state where the most

powerful desire to stop

drinking is of absolutely

no avail.”


BB p 24


That certain point, the line, the moment when

the drink became God.

For some it was the first day, the first drink,

for others it was fun at first and then one day

the line had been crossed, that certain point

was arrived at and the rest is history.

Regardless of when or how

you reached that point is mute,

what matters is that you no longer think about

picking up that first drink and you now rely on

the simple spiritual suggestions of those

who have gone before you.

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.
