A Course of Action

Lowes flowers 4-09 037


“After satisfying yourself

that your man

wants to recover

and that he will go

to any extreme to do so,

you may suggest a definite

course of action.”


BB p 142


Patience and tolerance, the newly arrived drunk

with the noisy mind, the jittery nerves and  a negative attitude

may say one thing but mean another.

Make sure they want what the sober fellowship has

and are willing to go to any length to get it.

The course of action is usually quite simple;

don’t drink, go to meetings, get a sponsor,

read the B.B. and begin to work the steps.

Be compassionate but be firm and remember that

the newcomer that you are helping

is also helping you keep your sobriety.

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.
