These Basic Principles


Regular attendance

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.
