Daily Reflection for 4/28/06: "No Cop-outs!"

We have to stay sober no matter how life treats us, no matter whether nonalcoholics appreciate our sobriety or not.

We have to keep our sobriety independent of anything else, not entangled with any people, and not hedged in by any possible cop-outs or conditions.

Over and over, we have found we cannot stay sober long just for the sake of wife, husband, children, lover,parents, other relative, or friend, nor for the sake of a job, nor to please a boss (or doctor or judge or creditor) -- not for anyone other than ourselves.

Thought to Ponder . . .

Having a slip is not an option.
Staying sober is the solution.
