Like Other Men

Pine Island Sunset 017


“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.
