Drop the Word

Lowes flowers 4-09 069


“Where other people

were concerned,

we had to drop

the word  ‘blame’

from our speech

and thought.”


Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 47


The alcoholic is afraid to look into the mirror,

petrified to do any soul searching

because they know that they will not like what they see,

a soul that has lost it’s way.

Life is just so much easier

when you can blame someone else

for all of life’s inadequacies.

Sobriety is to be responsible

and life is surprisingly less complicated when one

does not distort their thinking with alcohol.

Be honest, be responsible, don’t drink, don’t think,

go to meetings, read the Big Book and learn to

enjoy a life that is happy, joyous and free.

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.
