The Guiding Principle




rather than


will become

the guiding



BB p 128



The selfish, self-centered drunk wants more

and more …. and etc. ….ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

One is too many and a thousand is never enough.

The first time that good feeling comes rushing over you

after you have shared your experience strength and hope

with a new comer, giving rather than receiving

will be our new guiding mantra.

The word axiom will be added to your vocabulary

and whether you understand it or not

you will comprehend that you can’t keep it

until you give it away.

Today, share the love.

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.
