Self-will Run Riot

“So our troubles,

we think, are basically

of our own making.

They arise out of ourselves,

and the alcoholic is

an extreme example of

self-will run riot,

though he usually doesn’t think so.”

.

BB p 62

.

Thy will, not mine, be done.

A very difficult lesson for the fearful,

self-centered and egotistical drunk

who believes that he has everything under control.

I want what I want and I want it now,

regardless of who gets hurt, as long as it isn’t me.

And then we wonder why we can’t have

a healthy relationship, a happy family,

a happy employer, a happy Sheriff

or a happy self.

Today, be happy, don’t drink, think of others

and always try to do the next right thing.

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.
