at meetings, serving
and helping others
is the recipe that
many have tried and
found to be successful.
Whenever I stray
from these basic principles,
my old habits resurface . . .
Daily Reflections p 47
Yes, again and again, the same message.
Why ? ? ? you ask;
the answer is simple for two reasons,
a) how long did it take for y0u to learn
your alphabet, the ABC’s, ? ? ? , we are sure
it took some time and plenty of repetition and
b) the disease of alcoholism is know to have
a built in forgetter.
When we begin to feel better
we forget the guilt and shame,
the spiritual bankruptcy we endured
before we found a better way.
Therefore, same message, different day,
say a prayer, don’t think, don’t drink,
go to a meeting,
and repeat as often as is necessary.
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.
