    This might or might not have been posted before on here but, they say the hearing goes first and I can’t recall what we lose next 😉


    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, we were all in the
    club, Enjoying a meeting, instead of a pub,

    The ashtrays were clean, and the coffee was made,
    The Big Books were out and we all had prayed.

    When out in the lot, there arose such a clatter,
    We all jumped up to see what was the matter.

    The Chair with his Big Book, and I with my smokes,
    Headed outside to find these two blokes.

    They came inside and sat at a table;
    And said that they’d chair, as soon as they’re able.

    To start with, they said, “It’s more than not drinking;
    It’s doing your best to fix your sick thinking.”

    “Think, Think, Think!” and the slogans we used,
    Help keep the newcomer from getting confused.

    Step 1 is a start, they said we should know,
    But after Step 2, we’ll be all aglow.

    We make a decision when we got to Step 3;
    Step 4 was real tough, we all could agree,

    Step 5 is the one where we let it all out,
    And after Step 6 and 7, we are left with no doubt.

    When we got to Step 8, we made our list;
    And then with Step 9, we have to persist.

    After Step 9, the promises ring true;
    We didn’t just make that up, right out of the blue.

    After that, it’s on with the rest;
    The things we must do, to be our best.

    They put on their coats and got ready to leave;
    A pretty good end, for this Christmas Eve.

    As to their names, we only could guess;
    Must have been Bill W. and Dr. Bob S.

    The two men hopped into a ’35 Ford,
    And as they pulled out, one of them roared:

    “We leave this message, for our sisters &brothers:
    trust God, clean house, and be of service to others.

    And for all of you people, I just want to say:
    have a nice holiday, but don’t drink today!”

    Merry Christmas!!

    Today I know that the light at the end of the tunnel
    is an old-timer walking ahead of me with a lantern
