“A.A. was born out of trouble,

one of the most serious kinds

of trouble that can befall

an individual, the trouble

attendant upon this dark

and fatal malady of alcoholism.”


As Bill Sees It,   p. 82



Most alcoholics are not quit aware of how much trouble;

mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually,

they are in until they learn to listen and learn

that the disease has been the major cause of

most of their problems.

Alcohol, the depressant, may have once been

the facilitator of good times, but eventually

the darkness begins to close in.

Alcohol, the killer, begins to become apparent as

one hears the stories of those in the fellowship.

Today, enjoy a life with fewer troubles,

don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting

and thank your Higher Power

for directing you away from trouble.

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.
