“As we became
subjects of King Alcohol,
shivering denizens of
his mad realm,
the chilling vapor
that is loneliness
settled down. It thickened,
ever becoming blacker.”
BB p 151
The disease of alcoholism wants its sufferers to
isolate, be alone, push away anyone who loves them
and to kill themselves.
The loneliness and despair that accompanies
the depressant alcohol only adds insult to the injuries.
Alcohol is an addictive mood altering depressant
that wants the user to delude themselves into believing
that they are having fun, that they are more sociable,
that everything is just the way it is supposed to be,
as long as it is the way the selfish alcoholic wants it to be.
Today, avoid the blackness, seek help if you must.
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.
