Why Can’t He ?


“How many times people

have said to us:

‘I can take it or leave

it alone. Why can’t he ?’

Why don’t you drink like

a gentleman or quit.”


BB p 20


It was very difficult for me to understand

my obsession and compulsion to drink alcoholically,

therefore, how could I expect someone who has never

had the urge to drink understand.

Don’t worry about what they think,

put yourself into the middle of AA and hang out

with those who do understand.

Recovery is a we thing.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
