To Quit



“He made up his mind

to quit drinking altogether.

It never occurred to him

that perhaps he could not do so,

in spite of his character

and standing.”


BB p 39


I had no idea until I read this book

and learned to listen to the fine fellows in AA

that I was an alcoholic and that had I tried to stop on my own

two different scenarios would possibly occur;

a.) I could not stop


b.) I would be a miserable dry drunk

who would make everyone’s life unbearable.

Today, I choose to be a character and my standing is

much better now that I don’t drink and fall down.

Today, by the grace of God, the fellowship

and the program of Alcoholics Anonymous

you too can rebuild your own character

and elevate your standing in the community.

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.
