“Some of us have taken very hard

knocks to learn this truth:

Job or no job – wife or no wife –

we simply do not stop drinking

so long as we place dependence

upon other people ahead of

dependence on God.”


BB p 98


The alcoholic drinks because he is an alcoholic.

There are no outside causes, no reservations,

nothing that could prevent the drunk from accepting

his alcoholism wholeheartedly if he is willing to be honest.

Even if the boss gives the drunk a second chance,

even if the wife forgives him,

the drunk will drink again if he does not learn to

rely on a Higher Power who can do for him

what mere mortals cannot do.

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.
