You Can’t Win

vinoy park 012


“We doubt if many of them

can do it, because none will

really want to stop,

and hardly one of them,

because of the peculiar

mental twist already acquired,

will find he can win out.”


BB p 33


Alcoholism is a no win situation.

Even if he wants to stop, he may even stop,

but the true alcoholic cannot stay stopped.

The obsession and the compulsion to drink

has so distorted the brain of the alcoholic

that stopping seems to be impossible.

There is One who has all power,

that one is God, may you find Him now.

The Big Book is thorough in describing the dilemma

but fortunately it also has the solution.

Today, stop being a part of the problem

and become part of the solution.

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.
