An Assurance


“True humility

and an open mind

can lead us to faith,

and every A.A. meeting

is an assurance that

God will restore us to sanity

if we rightly relate

ourselves to Him.”


Twelve and Twelve    p 33


Why do these people keep showing up,

hour after hour, day after day,

week after week, month after month,

year after year ? ? ?

because it works.

Going to meetings, staying sober one day at a time

and allowing a Higher Power to direct our lives

allows sane thing to be restored to the alcoholic brain.

Today, go to a meeting and have faith, believe it,

when those who have gone before you say

that their worst day in sobriety

has been far better than their best day drunk.

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.
