“He sometimes drinks
in the morning and
through the day also,
to hold his nervousness
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.
