“If we were to live,

we had to be free of anger.

The grouch and

the brainstorm

were not for us.

They may be the

dubious luxury

of normal men,

but for alcoholics

these things are poison.”


BB p 66


As mother taught me, the only thing normal in this world

is the setting on the wash machine.

Anger, resentments, prejudice and bias are the defenses

the drunk uses to isolate, be alone,

push away anyone who loves him

and quietly pass into oblivion.

The disease is negative, insidious and left to run its course

it will lead to jails, institutions or death.

Today, quiet the noisy mind, mind your own business

and when all else fails, go to a meeting.

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.
