Step Three: Every Alcoholic is Driven By Two Stern Disciplinarians:  

A loving God, who patiently waits for you to do his will, or-
John Barleycorn.

'You don't want to do God's will?  OK - see you when your done at the liquor store.  How's that for keeping it simple?  That's all you need to know about Step Three until you finish Step Nine.  Now, shut up and get on your knees, and when you get up, I better see you with a pen in your hand'.

-David J., my loving teacher, friend and mentor.
Day One of my Sobriety
The Date?  Who Cares. Now is all we have.
Thank You, David.  
It takes a big man to tell a newcomer to shut up and do the work.
