To Drink Is To Die



“For when harboring

such feelings (resentments)

we shut ourselves off

from the sunlight

of the Spirit.

The insanity of alcohol returns

and we drink again.

And with us, to drink is to die.”


BB p 66


The Spirit of the Uni-verse is unconditional love.

Love is being able to accept and forgive.

I may not like your actions, however,

I will continue to love you unconditionally

because you are a child of the Great Creator

and I can identify with the disease that is controlling you life.

Read the book, go to meetings, get a sponsor, help another drunk,

work your program and be willing to enjoy the greatest promise of all,

‘there is a better way.’

Become a long timer, don’t drink, don’t die.

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.
