I hate meetings! I hate higher power! I hate
anyone who has a program!
To all who come in contact with me, I wish you death, I wish you
Allow me to introduce myself!
I am the disease of alcoholism and drug addictionó
Cunning, baffling, and powerful, thatís me. I have killed
millions and Iím pleased.
I love to catch you with the element of surprise. I love
pretending I am your friend and lover.
I have given you comfort, have I not? Wasnít I there
when you were lonely?
When you wanted to die, didnít you call me? I was there!
I love to make you hurt! I love to make you cry!
Better yet, I love it when I make you so numb you
can neither hurt nor cry.
You canít feel anything at all. This is my true Glory!
I will give you instant gratification and all I ask of you is long
Iíve been there for you always, when things were going right in your
you invited me in. You said you didnít deserve these good
and I was the only one who would agree with you.
Together we were able to destroy all good things in your life!
People donít take me seriously!
They take heart attacks, strokes, and even diabetes seriously, fools
that they are, they donít know
that without my help these things would not be
I am such a hated disease--- And yet, I do not come uninvited.
You choose to have me.
So many have chosen me over reality and peace.
More than you hate me; I hate all of you who have a 12-step program.
Your programs, your meetings, your support, your
Higher Power all weaken me and I canít
function in the manner I am accustomed to.
Now I must lie here quietly. You donít see me, But I am growing bigger
When you only exist, I may live. When you live, I only exist.
But I am here and until we meet again, If we meet again, I wish
you suffering and death!
