“He admits he cannot drink
like other people,
but does not see why.
He clings to the notion
that he will yet
find a way to do so.”
~ BB p 110
The disease of alcoholism is cunning, baffling and powerful
and it also has faith and hope that it will one day delude
the afflicted into believing that he can drink
like a normal person.
There is nothing normal about drinking an addictive substance
that is a poison.
Today, keep your spiritual guard up,
work with another drunk, attempt to do the next right thing
and ignore the voice of John Barleycorn
dancing through your head.
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.
