Live and Let Live



“Live and let live

is the rule.

If you both show a

willingness to remedy

your own defects,

there will be little need

to criticize each other.”


BB p 118


Even before the three little apropos mottoes

appear on page 135 of the Big Book, the authors

interjected “live and let live” into the

chapter “To Wives”.

We will repeat it again, drunk or normal,

every’ soul in this world can benefit

from this simple program and its suggestions.

Remedy your own defects

and offer suggestions to others

only if you have been there and done that,

you are walking the walk, and knowing that

when the changes have been made

they will benefit everyone.

Today, mind your own business.

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.
