The Principal Asset



“We grow by our

willingness to face

and rectify errors

and convert them

into assets.

The alcoholic’s past

thus becomes the

principal asset

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.
