Better To Comfort


By the hour, I stared

at the Francis Prayer:

“It is better to comfort

than to be comforted.”


As Bill Sees It p. 63



Get out of yourself.

The drunk is a selfish, self-centered,

a me, me, me, who is always in pain because

the never get enough of what they think they deserve.

Today, don’t act like a drunk,

act like the person your Higher Power wants you to be,

the person who knows that to feel right,

do the next right thing:

be kind, be loving, be patient, be forgiving

be the person your God wants you to be.

Recovery is learning to comfort,

rather than being comforted.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power
