they had a host
of new friends;
it seemed they
had known these
BB p 161
As a selfish, self-centered drunk I had no friends
because to have a friend you must be a friend.
Those drinking companions who I thought were friends
never came around again after I sobered up.
All of a sudden, in the rooms, around the fellowship,
I learned what a friend is, and more importantly
to keep my sobriety, I had to learn how to be a friend,
how to give back that which was so freely given to me.
Today, many of those fellowship friends
are now true friends, not just at meetings,
but daily as we go about living together as friends,
sharing a life that is happy joyous and free.
Today, stay sober and be a friend.
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.
