“Demands made upon
for too much attention,
protection, and love
can only invite domination
or revulsion. . . .
~ 12 & 12 p. 44
A demand is an expectation,
expectations are resentments waiting to be born
and for the alcoholic, resentments lead to drink
and to drink is to die.
Change is good, but in moderation.
If the drunk changes too much too fast and he expect others
to keep up with him, to give him what he wants,
one can only foresee that a negative response
is in the making.
Today, check your motives, know your wants and needs,
go slow, ask for guidance and when push comes to shove,
Recovery is seeking honest motives.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
