Really, Really

Pine Island Sunset 012


“Okay, God.

Is it true that I – of all people,

strange as it may seem

and even though I did not give

my permission – really, really

am an alcoholic of sorts.

And it’s all right with me.”


BB,  pp. 448 & 449,  3rd. edition


WOW, I’m an alcoholic ? ? ?

Just what I said I wanted to be when I grew up.

My disease was so strong that it had completely erased

the word alcoholic from my vocabulary.

I had a very vague idea of what alcoholism was

and it definitely did no apply too me.


after admitting that I was powerless over alcohol

and I acknowledged that I had a disease,

I was able to say, “Okay God”

what can we do about it.

Through the fellowship of A. A. my Higher Power

has given me direction, a reason and a purpose

to live a life that has been beyond my wildest dreams.

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.
