Like Gossip


“Character defects

like gossip

sneak into my life

when I am not making

a constant effort

to work the Twelve Steps

of recovery.”


Daily Reflections, p.297


The character defect of the drunk

was to talk about other people ( true or false)

so that I would not have to look at myself.

If you spot it, you’ve got it.

Too often what we despise in others

is what we despise in ourselves.

Today, don’t lose your serenity,

when you sense that something is not right,

don’t blame anyone but yourself.

Today, find the Step that will put you

back on a good spiritual foundation and

keep your own side of the street clean.

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.
