I could accept
I could not.”
Bill’s Letter, 1954
The mind gnaws on the bone,
the ego chokes on it.
We put down the drink and we begin to have
feelings we never felt before because
we always medicated every feeling
with the depressant alcohol.
We sober up, we learn about the disease
but the ego still says, ‘why me.’
Today, stay close to your sponsor and
your friends in the fellowship, let them
relate to you how emotions are normal, natural
and definitely not a reason to pick up a drink.
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.
