Pretty Drastic

flowers lowes 051


“But the program of action,

though entirely sensible,

was pretty drastic.

It meant I would have to

throw several lifelong

conceptions out of the window.

That was not easy.”


BB p 42


As a selfish, self-centered, know-it-all alcoholic

it was shocking to learn that a drastic change

would have to be affected if I was to escape

from the clutches of the demon alcohol.

Years of looking into the darkness made me believe

that the light would never again penetrate into my life.

The Book, the Program, the Fellowship showed me a way,

a spiritual path that was a light at the end of the tunnel.

Have faith, have courage, if millions have recovered

from alcoholism using this program of action,

so can you.

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.
