Had We Known



“Had we

fully understood

the nature of

the alcoholic illness,

we might have

behaved differently.”


BB p 107



If I only knew then what I know today

what a different life it might have been.

Then again, a drunk is a drunk and for many

self knowledge and an understanding of the disease of

alcoholism is still not enough to deter them from

trying to destroy their world.

Could have, should have, and would have are long gone

and the secret to todays sobriety is to put your new

self knowledge and learning to good use

by working with another alcoholic.

It is amazing how this simple spiritual program works.

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.
