What Matters ??



“Being wrecked
in the same vessel,
being restored and united
under one God,
with hearts and minds
attuned to the welfare
of others,
the things which matter
so much to some people
no longer signify
much to them.
How could they?”


BB p 161


The brain is on backwards,

the alcoholic does not consider consequences first,

he operates on impulses and seeks to stuff all feelings

by actions which defy common sense.

Rage, anger, selfish and self-centered are the nightmares

that consume the alcoholic life.

The answer,

the Big Book and the program of Alcoholics Anonymous.

The we program, one drunk helping another,

the path to a spiritual awakening and suddenly those things

which used to haunt us are now experiences, strength and hope

that can be passed along to the new comer.

We  now truly understand that there is a better way.

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.
