“Number One” Offender

lanai after july rain 003


“Resentment is

the “number one” offender.

It destroys more alcoholics

than anything else.

From it stem all forms

of spiritual disease,…”


BB p 64


It is always the fault of someone or something else,

Heaven forbid that I should admit that I made a mistake,

either way, there was always a reason to drink.

A. A. taught me that the only reason I drank was because

I am an alcoholic.

Whatever reasons or justifications I had for drinking

had to be put aside, I had to learn to take

responsibility for my actions.

Today, accept, be willing, change and do as is suggested;

don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting,

and be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

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.
