Self, Self, Self

November Roses 057

“Whatever our protestations,

are not most of us concerned

with ourselves,

our resentments,

or our self-pity?”


BB p 62



It was all about me, the drunk.

The only friend I ever had was the guy

who bought me my last drink.

The only relationship I could keep

was with the needy soul who believed my lies.

Denial was the only argument that I knew.

If I was not standing over you, gloating,

I was under you wallowing in self-pity

and building a resentment that was

driving me to drink.

With the guidance of God,

the Higher Power of our understanding,

and the fellowship of A.A.,

we have discovered that there is a better way.

Today, be Honest, Open-minded and Willing

to do the next right thing and be the person

our Higher Power wants us to be,

a friend, a loving companion, a sober soul.

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.
