A fellow I sponsored would say "I have to hang with sober alcoholics because if God called me on the phone right now, I would hang up"

Shared at a meeting by an oldtimer "Sometimes the thoughts in my head take a stroll out through my mouth. This is NEVER a good thing!" Cue much laughter or as I call it now 'identification'.

Step children are called step children because they make you work the steps.

Heard someone say, "My drinking got so bad, I'd suck the alcohol out of a deodorant stick" and "I was a bad drunk but I never drank while driving... Didn't want to spill any of it"
