New Friends

October Roses 058


“You are going to meet
these new friends
in your own community.
Near you,
alcoholics are dying
helplessly like people
in a sinking ship.

High and low, rich and poor,
these are future fellows
of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Among them you will make
lifelong friends.”


BB,   p. 152


For whatever motivation or reason

there are those alcoholics who are blessed

with the will to live that is stronger than

the disease that wants to kill them.

For many alcoholics who want to live

the Twelve Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous

provides a plan for living that keeps the disease at bay.

One of the stronger motivators for recovery is when

the fellowship becomes keenly aware of and witnesses

the devastation caused by the cunning, baffling,

powerful, patient and insidious disease of alcoholism.

With new found feelings for others it becomes very

sad and heart wrenching when we learn that a friend

has lost their battle with the disease.

Today, pray for the sick and suffering

and celebrate your recovery with 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.
