“He sometimes drinks

in the morning and

through the day also,

to hold his nervousness

in check.”


BB p 109


Once the body becomes physically dependent upon alcohol

many alcoholics are compelled to drink ,

to take some of the hair of the dog that bit them,

to prevent the Delirium Tremens, Latin for “shaking frenzy”,

to calm the nerves, to straighten out the eyesight.

Everyone is different as to how the disease affects them,

how the disease progresses and to be of help to those

who have a problem with alcoholism we should

educate ourselves to all of the manifestations of the disease.

Today, read the Big Book, go to a meeting and become aware

of how the disease affects the body, mind and soul

of the alcoholic.

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.
