When the will is primarily concerned about
when and where is the next drink coming from
the alcoholic invariably makes a few mistakes along the way.
Major problems: divorce, run-in with the law, lost jobs
or just minor faux pas; unhappy marriage, stuck in a job rut,
or just never able to get ahead, the recovering alcoholic
who honestly works the steps with a sponsor
will eventually see that it was not his will, or the lack of it,
but the demon John Barleycorn who created most of the messes.
Today, work the steps, put your ego in its place
and humbly ask your Higher Power to guide you
towards 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.
