The Spiritual Malady



“When the spiritual

malady is overcome,

we straighten out

mentally and physically.”



BB p 64


The alcoholic drinks because he has a disease,

he is an alcoholic.

In addition to the physical and mental,

obsession and compulsion, to drink

it is the resentments, the fear,

the guilt and shame,

those spiritual and emotional maladies

that also keep the alcoholic drunk.

Today, follow some suggestions, read the book,

work the steps and know that once

the spiritual soul is set at peace

the body and mind will soon follow.

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.
