a lonely business,
even though we
were surrounded by
people who loved us.”
Twelve and Twelve, p. 116
And even when we were surrounded by people
we were lonely.
Many a time I sat in the corner of a very busy tavern
thinking about how lonely I was,
my only company being the drink.
Many a time I just wanted to go home and hug my Mother
only to have second thoughts because I knew the topic
of my excessive drinking would come up
and I would be embarrassed and ashamed.
The disease of alcoholism wants the sufferer to isolate,
be alone, push away anyone who loves them
and to kill themselves.
Today, don’t be lonely, don’t isolate,
join the fellowship of A. A.
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.
