Perverse Self-satisfaction

pine is clouds 101


“Too much of my life

has been spent in dwelling

upon the faults of others.

This is a most subtle and

perverse form of self-satisfaction,

which permits us to remain

comfortably unaware

of our own defects.”


As Bill Sees It,  p. 44


If I’m talking about your problems,

blaming you for all of my problems,

I do not have to look at what part I played

in all of the chaos and confusion.

Working the steps requires that we honestly

look at how alcohol motivated us to lie,

cheat and steal, to become the person

we did not want to acknowledge.

Today, be honest, let others be others,

and be the person your God made 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.
