When our friend
related his experience,
the man agreed that
no amount of will power
he might muster could
stop his drinking for long.
A spiritual experience,
was absolutely necessary, . .
BB, p. 155
I can do this,
I can do anything I set my mind to accomplish,
so he said as he stopped by the bar for just one drink.
And then the disease exercised the mind of its own
and he awoke with a brain that was in that perpetual fog,
the brain that wanted to know what had happened.
Will power is a myth, those who claim to have it
are just lucky enough to have accomplished
what they set out to do.
Bad luck is usually to blame for a lack of accomplishment.
Today, let go and let God
and be happy to discover
that you need neither luck nor will power.
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.
