The Real Alcoholic

Lowes flowers 4-09 014


‘But what about

the real alcoholic?

He may start off as

a moderate drinker;

he may or may not become

a continuous hard drinker;

but at some stage

of his drinking career

he begins to lose all control

of his liquor consumption, once he starts to drink.”


BB p 21


Every alcoholic has a different story

but they all have one thing in common,

at some point in the drinking career

the first drink begins an obsession and compulsion

that the alcoholic cannot control.

Whether it is his first drink that begins the onset

or the ten thousandth drink after many years,

once the line has been crossed there is no turning back.

Best suggestion, do not compare your drinking habits,

identify with the feelings,  the consequences

of picking up that first drink.

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.
