“Seldom did we look

at character-building

as something desirable in itself…

We never thought of making

honesty, tolerance and true love

of man and God

the daily basis of living.


Twelve and Twelve, p. 72


As a drunk the thoughts were selfish and self-centered,

the only time we included others in our thoughts

was when we were tryin to control, manipulate ,

use or abuse that person.

It is only in sobriety, as the fog begins to lift,

do we begin to see that a few simple virtues,

practiced daily, can make life so much better.

Today; be honest, be kind, be tolerant, be loving

and instead of being the  miserable lowlife drunk,

become the loveable character

your Higher Power wants 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.
