Acceptance . . . and Faith


“Acceptance and faith

are capable of producing

100 per cent sobriety.

In fact, they usually do;

and they must, else

we would have no life at all.”


As Bill Sees It p 6



Acceptance that I am an alcoholic,

acceptance that one can recover from the disease,

acceptance that this world is exactly the way God wants it to be,

and faith that the next breath will be a sober breath

by the grace of God.

There is a life to be lived and those who have

acceptance and faith know that this life

can be happy, joyous and free.

Today, get a life, don’t fight reality,

accept it.

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.
