Alcohol's Promises

I have some promises I'll make to you
If you will do what I want you to do.
The more that you consume of me
The more your losses will surely be.
Here are the promises to you I make
And I promise the promises never to break.

I promise to take your money, your home
And all you can get in the way of a loan.
I'll take your character, your reputation too
Your good name, I'll take from you.
Your friends I'll take from you one day
Your family from you I'll turn away.
I'll take your car, I'll take your wealth
I'll take your job, I'll take your health.

I'll take your watch, I'll take your chain
I'll cause you to stay out in the rain
. I'll take your credit, I'll take your bail
I'll cause to sleep in a dirty jail.
I'll cause you regret, remorse and pain
I'll cause your name to go down in shame.

I'll bring you misery, I'll bring you woe
I'll bring you trouble more than you know.
I'll take your clothes and pawn them too
The necessities of Life, I'll take from you.

I'll take from you the days, I'll take from you the years
I'll double the flow of your bitter tears.

I'll take your heart, give you one of stone
I'll cause you to walk through life alone.
I'll take away your desires to live right
Your light of day, I'll turn to night.

I'll cause you to dishonor your mother and dad
I'll take away all the pleasure you could have had.

I'll turn your love for your friends to hate
Your desire to repent will come too late.

Your road to despair for you I'll pave
I'll cause you to fill a premature grave.
I'll put you in an institution for the insane
Your normal thinking will go down the drain.

I'll cause you to murder your very best friend
I'll trouble your mind to the very end.

I'll bring you contention, I'll bring you strife
I'll finish with you by taking your life........

11.We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
12. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do ourselves."

12 Steps

1- We admitted we were powerless over our alcohol/drugs, that our lives had become unmanageable.
2- Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3- Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4- Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5- Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of out wrongs.
6- Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7- Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8- Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9- Made direct amends to such persons wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10- Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11- Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12- Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics/Addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Easy does it
One day at a time
Just for today

Recovery is not for people who need it, it's for people who want it

An Addict who commits suicide is killing the wrong person.

Tomorrow's a fantasy and yesterday's gone...there's only today

If you don't want what we have, we will gladly refund your misery

Relapse starts long before the first drink

Don't give up before the miracle happens
