HEARD AT A MEETING
OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS
Last week, a speaker at an AA meeting stood before 150 people, and without saying a word, his whole body began to shake, most violently. St Vitus Dance? Epileptic seizure? NO! He explained that his sponsor said, “Never keep a disturbance inside you." Always get rid of it, and that you can do by just loosening up your whole body and mind. Like 'Let go and Let god'...
He gave a GREAT talk. Pssst, shhhh! (whisper) I tried 'shaking it up' several times that day. It worked...for me!
Heard this morning at 7 AM:
"I wish, instead of an alcoholic, I could just be a 'social' drinker. Then I could get my brain 'fucked up' every night!”
"The fact that I'm usually thinking about--planning--for when and where I'll get my drinks...told me I am an alcoholic.”
"Some people have two drinks and go home. THEY don't realize the true PURPOSE of alcohol--grin!”
"I tried to stay sober by using my mind and my will power. Someone told me I can't fix something broken...with something that's broken.”
"I cannot judge whether I am sane...or not.”
"I had two sets of 'friends': those in the bar at 3 PM every afternoon. Then, after I was 'asked to leave'...those people in my other favorite bar at 10 PM.”
"You'd never catch me in the bars...I drank at home, alone There I could not hurt anyone.” (What aboutcherself?)
"Being a 'little bit' alcoholic, is like being a 'little bit' pregnant!"
"I gave up drinking for Lent, and didn't make it through Ash Wednesday!” (Wednesday is bowling night!)
"I'll never know exactly what it was that kept me sober all these years. But I know what it wasn't! It was NOT my own thinking!
"I'm Steve E, and I'm an alcoholic."
LOVE and PEACE!
