convinces him he must act,
for the more you hurry him
the longer his recovery
may be delayed.”
BB p 113
You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink.
You can lead an alcoholic to AA but you cannot make him stay.
When you try to help another problem drinker, you may suggest,
but you should not badger them or insist,
know that the seed has been planted and be grateful that,
but for the grace of God, that could be you again.
Today, help another drunk keep you sober.
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.
