“Some of us sought
out sordid places,
hoping to find
Momentarily we did –
then would come oblivion
and the awful awakening
to face the hideous Four Horsemen
– Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration, Despair.”
BB p 151
Under the influence, thoughts and feelings were
terrifying, bewildering, frustrating and despairing.
Some alcoholics hid from everyone and everything,
some went to public places where other drunks,
just like them, were living a lie, chasing broken dreams
and denying that they had any problems because
it was always someone else’s fault.
The alcoholic does not need a reason to drink,
he drinks because he is an alcoholic.
Justifying ones actions is but a symptom of the disease.
Today, know peace of mind and serenity, don’t drink,
hang out with kind people, go to nice places and
do the next right thing.
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.
