Now About Health



“Now about health:

A body badly burned

by alcohol does not

often recover overnight

nor do twisted thinking

and depression vanish

in a twinkling.”


BB p 133


TIME, the word most addicted personalities do not like to hear.

I want what I want and I want it now, instant gratification,

that wonderful buzz feeling I had when I took that first drink,

the feeling I chased for years but was never able to recapture.

The next step, the line was crossed,

the drink now controlled the drinker

and all of the feelings disappeared.

Recovery is TIME, for the rest of ones life, hopefully.

Patience is new mantra for the alcoholic

who wishes to recover.

Acceptance is the answer,

for all things will change in God’s TIME.

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.
