Like Other People




“He is worried at times,

and is becoming aware

that he cannot drink

like other people.”


BB p 109




It was easy to solve that worry,

the one where I questioned

whether I could drink like other people,

I only frequented clubs and bars where the real drunks

made me look like a piker.

I figured that when I started to drink like them,

maybe then I might have a problem.

Working the steps we honestly face our disease

and begin to look at ourselves,

no denying, no comparisons,

just the honest to God truth.

Today, no worries, no fears, just gratitude.

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.
