Why Was This ?



He seemed quite rational

and well-balanced with

respect to other problems.

Yet he had no control

whatever over alcohol.

Why was this?


BB p 26


Most of the brain works rationally, however,

there is that one spot that is on backwards,

that area that should say don’t drink that poison,

the area that tells the addicted that they want to be alone,

isolate, push away anyone that loves them and to kill themselves,

that sick part of the brain that loses control once the first drink is taken.

Why was this ???

Because they were born that way.

Today, accept the life that God has dealt you

and do what you must to achieve a well-balanced life.

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.
