No Control



“We alcoholics

are men and women

who have lost the ability

to control our drinking.

We know that

no real alcoholic

ever recovers control.”


BB p 30


My Higher Power is the pilot

and I am the co-pilot

and experience has taught me

that every time that I think I am in control

my life crashes and burns.

Not drinking, one day at a time,

with the spiritual aid of a my loving Great Creator,

is the only thing I can control.

The Big Book and thousands of testimonials

that I have heard in the rooms has confirmed to me

that to pick up the first drink is to lose control and to die.

Today, control what you can, don’t drink alcohol.

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.
