“Rightly and naturally,
we think well before
we choose the person
or persons with whom
to take this intimate
and confidential step.”
BB p 74
To work Step Five we are to relate our story
to another human being.
As my sponsor said, ‘ be careful ‘ , you are looking at
a room full of drunks, many of whom could not for years
be trusted with anything, especially secrets.
Priest who want donations, preachers who want contributions,
and we will not even go into the trustworthiness of lawyers,
many gurus, shamans and Indian chiefs who will have no idea
of what you are attempting to do should be struck from your list
of those you can trust.
Today, seek out those who have what you want and just
like normal people, choose your friends and confidants wisely.
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.
