Ignorance and Misunderstanding



“Now these are

commonplace observations

on drinkers which we

hear all the time.

Back of them is a world

of ignorance

and misunderstanding.”


BB p 20


The reason AA is Anonymous is because of the negative

social stigma that is attached to the alcoholic.

The real world rarely understands, they don’t want too know,

they just want the drunk to pull up his boot straps,

get some will power and learn to drink like a normal person.

Today’s suggestion, attraction rather than promotion,

don’t go teaching and preaching, just answer the questions

as they arise and be willing to suggest that maybe

they should read the Big Book.

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.
