“We demanded more than
our share of security,
prestige and romance.
When we seemed
to be succeeding,
we drank to dream
still greater dreams.
When we were frustrated,
even in part,
we drank for oblivion.”
Twelve and Twelve, p. 71
AS Bill Sees It, p. 40
There is a constant battle between
the denial of the disease and the reality of the addiction.
We thought that we needed a reason to drink
when if fact we drank because we were alcoholics.
This simple spiritual program suggest
that we allow a Higher Power to let us see reality,
to examine the bad habits, the denial, the justifications
of the past and let Him help us put them aside.
Today, know that there is no real reason
to drink alcohol.
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.
