The Twelfth Suggestion




“This is our

twelfth suggestion:

Carry this message

to other alcoholics!

You can help when

no one else can.”


BB p 89



Simple; don’t drink, thank your Higher Power

and work with another alcoholic.

You cannot keep your sobriety until you give it away.

By telling your story to another you are defeating

the built in forgetter that the disease possesses,

you are reminding yourself of what it used to be like,

what happened and what it is like now.

Today, don’t tell them what to do,

show them what you have done.

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.
