Moderation

“Moderate drinkers have

little trouble in giving

up liquor entirely

if they have good reason

for it.

They can take it

or leave it alone.”

.

BB,   p. 20

.

The line.

That point in time when the drinker

no longer controlled his drinking

and the drink began to control him.

For some it was after the first drink,

for many it was years of drinking socially

and then without warning, without being noticed,

the line was crossed.

Moderate drinking is a term the alcoholic

has difficulty understanding.

How can that man or lady order that drink,

take a few sips and leave the rest.

Today, remember there is no such thing

as moderation for the alcoholic

and more begins with the first drink.

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.
