The Best Reason

Dec 1 pansies 034



“The best reason first:

If we skip

this vital step,

we may not

overcome drinking.”


BB, p. 72


Although this line from the Chapter ‘Into Action’

is referring to Step Five, it basically can also apply

to each and every one of the Twelve Steps.

The Steps are written in the order

in which they are to be worked, however,

once all of the steps have been worked

it is suggested that if one is faced with an

uncomfortable situation that may lead you to a drink;

don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting and

find the Step, that when reviewed again, will help

you find the pathway to happy, joyous and free.

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.
