“All of us felt at times that
we were regaining control,
but such intervals
– usually brief –
were inevitably followed
by still less control,
which led in time to pitiful
and incomprehensible demoralization.”
Big Book, p. 30
I thought I enjoyed drinking.
I though my life would come to an end if
I could no longer drink.
I thought that somehow I could learn
to drink responsibly.
Thinking was obviously one of my problems.
When I stopped thinking, as suggested by my sponsor,
and I started to sober up, and I heard the stories
from the recovering alcoholics in the rooms,
it became apparent that to avoid the pitiful
and incomprehensible demoralization of the drunk
I would have to stop drinking, one day at a time.
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.
