A Legitimate Reason



“So our rule is

not to avoid a place

where there is drinking,

if we have

a legitimate reason

for being there.”


BB p 101


If you hang around a barber shop long enough

you will eventually get a hair cut, ergo,

hang around a bar and you will eventually drink.

However, we do not have to crawl into a hole

and never have a life in recovery,

we may go where ever we want to go

as long as we keep our motives honest and sincere.

Bars, nightclubs, dances, receptions, weddings,

even plain ordinary whoopee parties”  BB p 101

are not to be avoided if we have a legitimate reason

for going there.

Today, live life, but don’t do anything foolish.

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.
