The Strong Will



“It relieved me

somewhat to learn

that in alcoholics

the will is amazingly

weakened when it

comes to combating liquor,

though it often remains

strong in other respects.”


BB p 7


The will cannot be turned on and turned off

like a water tap, the will has a mind of it’s own, however,

when the allergy to alcohol kicks in the will is defenseless.

Chocolate, nicotine, sex, gambling, hoarding, workaholic

and the list of  obsessive compulsive behaviors

that defy the will grows

as the soul and the spirit give way.

Today, don’t rely on the will, depend on God to allow

you to realize the strength that the soul requires

to change one’s behaviors.

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.
