“Here lies a Hampshire Grenadier
Who caught his death
Drinking cold small beer.
A good soldier is ne’er forgot
Whether he dieth by musket
Or by pot.”
Ominous warning –
which I failed to heed.
BB p 1
In sobriety I have learned to heed those ominous warnings
which used to baffle me,those intuitive feelings
that if I pick up that first drink bad things will begin to happen.
Oh, how many warnings did my Higher Power send me that I
failed to heed.
Parents, spouses, children, employers, lost friends, all of whom
warned me that if I did not change, things will only get worse,
and they did.
Today, heed the God advice, be it your own intuition
or your Higher Power talking to you through other people
and know that if you do not pick up that first drink
the promises of the Big Book will come true.
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.
