Illness

“An illness of this sort –

and we have come to believe

it an illness – involves

those about us in a way

no other human sickness can.”

.

BB p 18

For most ill people we fell sorry for their condition,

not so the alcoholic.

The social stigma, the ignorance and stupidity

give rise to a disdain for the suffering alcoholic

and no sympathy or understanding is forthcoming.

The family and those around the alcoholic

are also affected differently.

Today, don’t preach, don’t teach,

just be the shining example of what recovery

from the illness can be like.

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.
