For His Inspection


“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.
