Followed Always

Turtle & Charo 010


” We have tried

every imaginable remedy.

In some instances there

has been brief recovery,

followed always by a

still worse relapse.”


BB p 31


Every story is unique, however, most

will include a litany of efforts where the alcoholic

tried to control his drinking.

One saying in A. A. that is repeated often is

‘stopping drinking is the easy part,

staying stopped is the hard part.’

Those who have found a stable sobriety

will tell you that there are no short cuts.

Do the work, follow the suggestions, accept,

change what you must and know that recovery

is body, mind and soul and not drinking

one day at a time.

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.
