Meetings are like an orgy, everybody leaves with a big smile, but don't know who to thank.

Some of the funniest things I've heard by far are at the newcomer's meetings..

"You know you've been drinking too long when your bedroom smells like an outhouse at a Jimmy Buffet concert."

"I knew I was in trouble when my wife found me in the laundry room passed out with my head wedged between the washer and dryer."

"I was clean and sober for three months and one Saturday morning I decided to clean out the rain gutters. I found 15 empty vodka bottles in them and have no idea how they got there."

"I was out drinking one night and was at my fourth bar when my phone rang. It was my wife. I had left her at the first bar and had totally forgotten that we left the house together."

"One Sunday morning the neighbor behind us called and asked me to remove my car from their front lawn and put their mailbox back up."

"I kept calling my sister and she would never pick up the phone. When I asked her why she told me she blocked my number because I kept drunk dialing her at three in the morning crying my eyes out."

"I woke up in a motel room three states away and there was a strange man in the other bed. I had no idea how I got there."

"My neighbor walked up to me and told me I was a really nice guy and everything but he really didn't appreciate me coming to his door naked at four in the morning asking if he had any wine."

An interesting quote I made- actually it was a prayer I was quoting. It was the day after Thanksgiving and I read a very beautiful short prayer of thanks...

"Thank You, God
Is all that I can say
For who knows whether we’ll make it
With grit, come what may
And without God's Mercy
We may try all night and day
Forgetting what we’re worth
A clot of blood, just clay
However, with His Mercy
A mountain can we move
With ease and no great effort
Just hope in Him, just love
So, Thank You God
Is all that I can say
Just help me share this blessing
With all who come my way"

After I finished reading it, the group leader that day thanked me and commented on what a beautiful prayer that was. She asked me what Book of the Bible it came from, as she didn't recall ever reading it. I looked at her, smiled and said "It's the Book of Surah Dahr, Chapter 76, Verse 31. It's from the Koran."

She let out a gasp that was heard three counties away and blurted out "You have GOT to be kidding!" I looked around the room to see everyone's mouths just hanging open. =geek =biggrin

Heya beautiful people :D a new day, a new week. How exciting!

I haven't heard these in the rooms. I received it from our group wassap. They're quite cool !


To be old and wise you first have to be young and stupid.

I don't drink to get drunk ... I drink to get my inner demons drunk, so they'll pass out and give me some peace.

A bad attitude is like a flat tire;
you cant go anywhere until you change it.

I may have some bad days but that's okay.
I used to have bad years.

I would rather go through life sober believing I am an alcoholic
than go through life drunk trying to convince myself that I am not.

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

There are two types of pains, one that hurts you and the other that changes you.

I try to take it one day at a time,
but sometimes several days attack me at once. :D

I only drink a little,
but when I do,
I turn into another person and that person drinks a lot.

Your speed doesn't matter. Forward is forward.

and lastly .... (this one is just funny to remember to get a smile from me when I get a little agitated with someone's behavior. It doesn't make it true or good to think. It does make it fun though :D - "if idiots could fly this place would be an airport ..."

Bye-bye, have a good day

4. When someone tells me it's about willpower, I tell them, it's a disease and needs to be treated as an illness. Then I tell them, the next time you have diarrhea, try to stop shitting with willpower.

CONTENTMENT:
Learn that contentment consists, not in getting what you want, but enjoying what you have. If you are contented by only getting what you want, then your going to be discontented most of the time....The choice is yours.....

Expectations are just premeditated resentments. I heard that here. =biggrin

There is a native word of greeting, Ky'hoo'ya, which means "Walk In The Sunlight of the Spirit", and is also a fitting acronym for "Keep Your Head Out Of Your Ass."

We have a saying in our group that the only way to really see the quality of an alcoholics sobriety is to hide behind a curtain in his home as the 'true quality of sobriety ' is not reflected in the rooms.
