REALLY RAINING

 

 

 

“Why do people ask if someone is really sober?”

“They’re checking for the winners, I guess,” responded my sponsor.

“But what does that mean?”

“Well, when the clouds roll in and the next thing you know it’s really raining, you can clearly discern the difference between that and just a shower.  The commitment of water saturates the atmosphere and the rain is the undeniable certainty.  That is what people are looking for and they ask to discover if the person even comprehends the concept.”

“What do they do if the person is really sober?”

“Stand next to them and soak it all in.”

 

 

Have double paned windows to insulate you from cosmic rays or constant criticism.

With and Without

 

 

With my sponsor-

Without my drinking buddies

 

With my Big Book-

Without my contrived dogma

 

With my home group-

Without my dysfunctional family

 

With my step work-

Without my mental masturbation

 

With my sobriety-

Without my insanity

 

With all this I can live-

Without all that
