“Opinions vary considerably
as to why the alcoholic reacts
differently from normal people.
We are not sure why,
once a certain point is reached,
little can be done for him.
We cannot answer the riddle.”
BB, p. 22
More than a few alcoholics can identify with the
concept that under the influence of the disease
they were egomaniacs that suffered
with an inferiority complex.
The brain has a short circuit.
The quote on quote ‘normal’ people
have no idea what it is like to want to do
the next right thing, only to wake up and discover
that the need to drink won the debate, again.
Today, follow the suggestions, read a slogan or two,
and ask your Higher Power to not make you a statistic.
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.
