Our Stories



“Our stories disclose

in a general way

what we used to be like,

what happened,

and what we are like now.”


BB p 58


What it used to be like: drunk-a-log,

keep it brief, the drunks in the fellowship

know how to drink.

Tell just enough of your drinking career

to qualify yourself and to let the newcomer identify.

What happened: a short story,

or maybe a longer one if needed

to describe how your Higher Power

directed your feet to the other side of the street.

And what it is like now: the glowing highlights

of a recovered soul that is sober,

by the grace of God

and is leading a glorious life

that is beyond our wildest dreams.

Today, make what we are like now, better.

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.
