“At the very beginning,
the couple ought to
frankly face the fact
that each will have to
yield here and there
if the family is going
to play an effective part
in the new life.”
BB p 131
Yield is just another word for change.
For the drunk who is lucky enough
to still have a family when he decides to
join our way of life, the task of getting sober
must be a family affair.
Everything changes, but the change
between the drunk and the sober person
is often so very dramatic and traumatic
that to accept it will require much
unconditional love, tolerance, patience and forgiveness,
words that were seldom used in the diseased family.
Today, be willing to yield,
ask your Higher Power to lead you
down a humble path.
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.
