Like A Gentleman


“If anyone who is showing

inability to control his

drinking can do the

right- about-face and

drink like a gentleman,

our hats are off to him.

Heaven knows,

we have tried

hard enough and long enough

to drink like other people!”


BB p 31


Drank hard and long with a few school mates

and after graduation most of them settled down

to careers, families and an occasional drink of alcohol

on just special occasions.

Then there were the few of us who eventually

met up later in life in the rooms of AA.

Only God knows and to argue the point

of who is and who is not, (alcoholic)

who can’t and who can stop, (drinking)

is a discussion for those who need a life.

If you have a problem with alcohol, read the Big Book,

follow its suggestions and move forward into a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

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.
