Make No Bones



“Telling them what

we are trying to do,

we make no bones

about our drinking;

they usually

know it anyway,

whether we think so or not.”


BB p 78


It is usually the drunk who is last to know

how big the problem is that his drinking has caused.

When clearing the wreckage of the past

we must admit our sins to those we have harmed

and humble ourselves by asking their forgiveness.

The best advice ( suggestion)  I received;

making amends means to change,

do not say you are sorry, sorry does not cut it anymore.

Show them that you have begun a new way of living,

knowing that these humble changes will make you the person

your Higher Power wants you to be.

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.
