Truisms

Post by joey » Mon Nov 09, 2009 11:53 pm

Directions to AA: Just go straight to hell and make a u-turn.

AA: Being a part of something is more important that being the center of attention.

AA is the only place where you can walk into a room full of strangers and reminisce.

AA romance.... the odds are good... but the goods are odd.

AA: Look for a way in; not for a way out.

AA has no fixed address -- you can take it with you.

AA: We are here for a reason, not for the season

AA Groups: An AA group will be judged by the worst behavior of its members

Before I came to AA I was dead, but did not know enough to lie down.

In AA there are no losers -- just slow winners

Alcoholic (as defined by self): A piece of crap that the universe revolves around.

Alcoholic: Someone who refuses to give up a life of failure without a fight.

Alcoholic: A person who when s/he goes to a wedding, wants to be the bride and when s/he goes to a funeral, wants to be the corpse.

An alcoholic is someone who wants to be held while isolating.

Alcoholic: "I may not be much, but I'm all I think about."

Alcoholic: "If I wasn't an alcoholic, I'd drink all the time!"

Alcoholics burn their bridges in front of them.

An alcoholic is someone who finds something that works and then stops doing it.

If you think that you are an alcoholic, chances are you are.

An alcoholic is a person with two feet planted firmly in mid-air.

Non-alcoholics change their behavior to meet their goals; alcoholics change their goals to meet their behavior.

An alcoholic can be in the gutter and still look down on people.

High bottoms have trap doors

If the cure works, chances are you have the disease.

Three most dangerous words for an alcoholic: "I've been thinking"

Sorry but some of that stings me. Funny but cuts close. But laughing like hell now.
