“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.
