“For God’s sake,
how did I ever get
Only to have that thought
“Well, I’ll stop
with the sixth drink.”
“What’s the use anyhow?”
BB p 24
Cunning, baffling, powerful and patient,
the disease of alcoholism wants the sufferer to forget
and continue the progressive path towards
jails, institutions and death.
Forgetting, denying, justifying, defending,
explaining, or making excuses for by reasoning
which is unhealthy and just plain idiotic
is the subtle manipulation of the disease.
Sometimes not to subtle,
the alcoholic drinks because he is an alcoholic
and no amount of reasoning can justify his drinking alcohol.
Today, don’t think, don’t drink and go to a meeting.
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.
