“The papers reported
men jumping to death
from the towers
of High Finance.
That disgusted me.
I would not jump.
I went back to the bar.”
BB p 4
For the drunk, the only reason not to live
is if the world would have run out of alcohol.
Good, bad or indifferent, any old excuse was a reason to drink.
It was the program of AA and the Big Book that taught me
the reason alcoholics drink is because they are alcoholics,
all other reasons are but feeble excuses.
Obsession and compulsion aside, life still goes on and
most recovering souls will emphatically state
that their worst day sober
is still better than their best day drunk.
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.
