Pass it on Dude. Pass it on!

There is no possible way that I can repay Alcoholics Anonymous for the life I have now, for the lives that I have the opportunity to affect, and the drunks that might be saved, because I Stepped out of the darkness and into the Light. All I can do is say "Yes! Thank You." when I am asked. (PS: Greeter is the best job EVER!)
If I'm not able to say how I'm working my program today, then I'm not working my program.

Awesome story.
This helped me today as I ham hanging with the family getting bossed around by every one. Praying "what is my role?" is awesome. I am going to go do that right now. It is always funny to me how family stress can be one of the biggest trigger. Thanks again.

I think that's because we can choose our friends, but we cannot choose our family members. We're stuck with 'em.

That was a beautiful story, it reminds me of all the gifts I would have missed if I picked up that next drink 4 yrs ago. Thank you for sharing.
