We had approached A.A.
expecting to be taught
Twelve and Twelve, p. 22
As Bill Sees It, p. 42
“Who among us wants to admit defeat ? ? ?,”
was at first answered with a resounding no
until we began to work the steps and realized that
we had lost the battle, alcohol was the victor.
The only way to survive was to admit defeat
and look for a better way to wage a different war.
The program of A. A. and a Higher Power
were the answer to a new way of living,
a method of winning the new war
that must can be carried on,
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.
