~ 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.
