“He had a desperate
desire to stop,
but saw no way out,
for he had earnestly
tried many avenues
BB p 155
Escape from the obsession and compulsion to drink
was tantamount to trying to flee from a prison that had no bars.
The prison was everywhere and until we started to work the program
of Alcoholics Anonymous little did we understand the inclusive
( body, mind and soul) nature of the disease.
Today, with the help of the Program, the Fellowship and
a loving Higher Power, we have a daily reprieve,
a ‘get out of jail free’ card, a map that leads
to happy, joyous and free.
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.
