“We grow by our
willingness to face
and rectify errors
and convert them
The alcoholic’s past
thus becomes the
of the family and
frequently it is almost the only one!”
BB p 124
The principal asset of the drunk is his past.
Unfortunately, one of the strongest characteristics
of alcoholism is a built in forgetter.
When the first drink is picked up the drunk forgets
all of the grief, the shame, the remorse,
the problems caused by drinking.
Going to meetings and listening to the new comer describe
their the trials and tribulations is usually enough of a reminder
as to why I follow a program as suggested by the
Big Book and the fellowship of AA.
Today, pray that you don’t forget.
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.
