“We are like men
who have lost their legs;
they never grow new ones.
Neither does there appear
to be any kind of treatment
which will make alcoholics
of our kind like other men.”
BB, pp. 30 & 31
Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.
The brain has been permanently altered
and science has yet to find a way to reverse the damage.
It is brain damage, how else could one explain
drinking a poison to kill oneself.
Recovery is learning to live without being under
the influence of the disease.
The program of A. A. has suggested that soliciting
the aid of a Higher Power can put one
on the road to recovery.
Today, use the God directed
healthy side of your brain.
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.
