Promise #9

“Our whole


and outlook

upon life

will change,”


~ BB,  p. 84



Better know as the Ninth Step promises,

it is understood that the sooner one works the steps,

honestly and to the best of their abilities,

the sooner the promises begin to come true.

Alcohol is a depressant

and as one detoxes from the poison

the souls altitude and attitude will begin to rise.

Instead of being pushed into the doldrums

by the obsession and compulsion to drink

the alcoholic is give a fresh opportunity to live

a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Today, get out of yourself, help another drunk.

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.
