Constitutionally Incapable

flowers lowes 036


“Those who do not recover

are people who cannot

or will not completely

give themselves to this

simple program,

usually men and women

who are constitutionally

incapable of being honest

with themselves.”


BB p 58


Most alcoholics began their drinking careers

having a drink or two every once in awhile and then,

as the disease progress, they crossed that line

where instead of them controlling the drink,

the drink controlled them.

Unfortunately, for some, they crossed so far over the line

that they no longer could distinguish reality from the lie,

the truth was beyond their comprehension.

Never give up hope, every recovering alcoholic

is a mircle who had once crossed that line

and, by the grace of God,

were restored  to honest and sane thinking

by reading the book and working a program.

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.
