A Tornado

house lanai 015


“The alcoholic is like

a tornado roaring his way

through the lives of others.

We feel a man is unthinking

when he says that

sobriety is enough.”


BB,   p. 82


There are twelve steps

and the drunk who picks and chooses

only a few steps to work and doesn’t drink ,

one day at a time,

is only ignoring the storm clouds

that are forming on the horizon.

As needed, practice all of these principles

in all of your affairs and know that just not drinking

is but the tip of the iceberg.

Today, work all of the steps, go to a meeting,

share some time with another recovering alcoholic

and be the whole person that your Higher Power

wants you to be.

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.
