The Seventh Step

is where we made

the change in our attitude

which permits us,

with humility as our guide,

to move out from ourselves

toward others

and toward God.”


Twelve and Twelve p 76


The selfish, self-centered attitude will usually cause

the alcoholic to be drunk or miserable or both.

Normal people have balance in their lives,

they have boundaries, goals, aspirations

and also a natural desire to be of service

to family and community.

One of the goals of a recovering alcoholic

is to find that balance in their lives.

Today, take care of your needs,

don’t let your wants get in the way,

and when you have had enough, share.

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.
