The Inventory

Lowes flowers 4-09 041

“We finally saw

that the inventory

should be ours,

not the other man’s.

So we admitted

our wrongs honestly

and became willing

to set these matters straight.”


As Bill Sees It, p 222


The good drunk is always ready

to blame all of his problems on someone else.

The could haves, should haves and would haves

were the litany of the chronic sufferer.

Honesty became a new by-word

and for many it took more than one try

to become completely honest.

As daunting as honesty may seem,

for the truly recovered,

it has been the doorway to freedom.

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.
