“Never talk down
to an alcoholic
from any moral
or spiritual hilltop;
simply lay out the kit
of spiritual tools
for his inspection.”
BB p 95
This is how they worked with me.
They suggested that I work the Steps,
honestly, open-minded and willingly,
and allow a Higher Power do for me
what I could not do for myself.
No preaching, no teaching, just a brief
explanation that shows what it was like,
what happened and what it is like now
and if the newcomer likes what he sees
let him begin his own journey to recovery.
Today, be at the meeting
to show the newcomer that it works.
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.
