Guilt and shame will keep the alcoholic drunk.
Step Nine is taking the necessary actions
to clear the wreckage of the past,
to put before us a life that has been cleared
of the guilt and shame.
Don’t say you are sorry and then try to run and hide,
remember, you are doing this for your own emotional well being
and the more thorough you are in completing this step
the smoother the sailing will be in the future.

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.
