The Great Obsession

pine is clouds 085


“The idea that somehow,

someday he will control

and enjoy his drinking

is the great obsession

of every abnormal drinker.”


BB p 30


The disease is cunning, baffling, powerful

and patient.

It is the only disease that tells you

that you don’t have a disease.

Alcoholism is a disease that has

a built in forgetter, it allows you to remember

the good feeling, the good time, but

makes you forget the consequences.

The drunk is a very clever person, but,

we have yet to find a drunk who has been able

to outsmart his disease.

Surrender, let go and let God,

know that the AA sober way is the right way

and the disease will always win, if you let it.

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.
