A Fatal Malady



“Continue to speak

of alcoholism

as an illness,

a fatal malady.

Talk about the

conditions of

body and mind

which accompany it.”


BB p 92


Believe that it is a disease.

Believe that the disease wants you to isolate, be alone,

push away anyone who loves you and to kill yourself.

Believe that once you pick up the first drink

there is no will power great enough to combat

the physical compulsion and the mental obsession

that is alcoholism.

Today, believe in your program, trust your Higher Power,

clear the wreckage of the past, share the message

and don’t 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.
