“Next day

we would ask


in all earnestness

and sincerity,

how it could

have happened.”


BB p 37


As smart as I thought I was, it was not until I read the Big Book,

went to many meetings and had a sponsor who was well versed about alcoholism

that I began to understand that I not only had a drinking problem ,

I also had a thinking problem.

AA corrected my thinking, educated me about alcoholism

and taught me the basics: I drank because I was an alcoholic

and I had no defense against the first drink.

Today, my defense is a Higher Power,

may you find one now.

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.
