From J&C workshop-Proverbs by Solomon

Post by avaneesh912 »

Now, the book of Proverbs was written by a fellow named Solomon. And you all remember Solomon was a very, very wise, very
learned individual. He might have been the first social worker the world had ever seen. Yeah, whenever people had a problem they
went to Solomon to get the answer for it. And apparently somebody asked him one time about alcoholism, cause he describes us in
the Proverbs (23:29). He said,

Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eye? They that tarry long at the wine.

J & C Everybody was a wino in those days; they didn’t have the hard stuff like we got it today.

He said, You will be as one who stoopeth in the midst of the sea.

J & C Remember how you used to lay down in bed and that old bed start moving around on you.

Or that sleepeth at the top of a tall mast.

J & C You know the way a mast sways back and forth.

And he said, You will say they have beaten me and I felt it not.

J & C And he surely knew some of us men,

he said, And thine eyes shall behold strange women.

J & C Alcoholics really haven’t changed very much have they?

And thine heart shall utter perverse things.

J & C Like trust me honey, please trust me. He said, and yet,

They will arise in the morning and seek it yet again
Show him the mental twist which leads to the first drink of a spree. We suggest you do this as we have done it in the chapter on alcoholism.(Alcoholics Anonymous, Page 92)
