RE :Heard at meetings

12345 I have seen numerous alcoholics get sober by
sitting in AA meetings. And they died sober, never drinking
again. It is almost like osmosis. True, some members make it
difficult for themselves and others, by constant work.
Faith without works is dead they say. But all the works in
the world is of little value without faith. ANONYMOUS

Allergy!!!

I discovered that I was allergic to alcohol. When I stopped drinking and I could clearly see this allergy.

I was also allergic to reality(without alcohol in my system!!!)

So 12 steps came to my rescue in this area of my life. I am indeed blessed by the message of AA.

The greatest use of the English language in my own family circle is for me to say nothing!!!( from time to time of course!!!)

People, places, and things, life's too short, live it up!

I remember how much people used to bother me, especially the he said, she said about me, telling me how I should do things, and all the other stuff. I laugh today when I hear someone else who says their bothered by another individual or people. I'm my own self and know who I am today, I love life; and what others have to say about me makes me think wow I rent space in someone else's head. I tell those who are bothered by others life's too short to worry what others say. I know when someone talks about me, I think too I know who I am and it's ok that others don't like my opinion. Who said everyone has to like me? I don't like everyone, I stick to live and let live.
This message is for all those who get what I hear in the meetings, hope it helps:)

RE: Quote of my day!

"We shall be with you in the fellowship of the spirit,
and you will surely meet some of us as you TRUDGE the road
of happy destiny. May God bless you and keep you-
until then." Life is in the journey. We travel the road OF
happy destiny: not TO happy destiny. There are indeed
"bumps in the road" for most of us. ANONYMOUS

Visions of soberity.

When I was 16 my priest said to me unless I change I'll be dead or in jail by age 30. Oddly enough I am 34 and quit drinking at 29. I did not realize the strange connection until 6 months ago. God does work in strange ways.

Visions of sobriety

God puts people in our path in life for a reason, wether good or bad. All people, places, and things can either teach us or destroy us. It took me a long time to realize this. With humility and wisdom, we strive in life. Good for you that you seen this, surely You have humility and wisdom.

A great day

A good day is when everything goes good for you and at the end of the day you are sober. A great day is when everything goes horribly wrong and at the end of the day you are sober.

Bill Wilson

The following announcement pinned on the door of a room in a holiday resort.

"FRIENDS OF BILL WILSON WELCOME at 8 pm."

A young lady read the notice, entered. She was the first to arrive at the meeting, so she sat down and waited.

Soon a young man arrived, shook her hand. They introduced them selves to each other,sat down and began to talk.

At 8 pm. the young man said, "O.K. Lets start the meeting!" The young lady asked, "What meeting?" He replied, "The AA meeting!" She said, "I never drank in my life, I'm not an alcoholic. But the notice said 'Friends of Bill Wilson welcome at 8 pm. I am curious so I decided to enter and meet this Bill Wilson!"

I was on vacation early in sobriety driving down the US Pacific Coast and hit a meeting at a nice facility right next to the ocean. I knew no one in the room and was sitting quietly at a table watching the room fill with a laughing, animated crowd. Suddenly, I heard yelling erupt at a table next to me. An angry guy was standing over another guy shaking his fist and shouting at him. A couple of AA members got between the two and escorted the yeller to the door. As they opened the door and ushered the yeller out you could have heard a pin drop. All of the laughter and chatter evaporated as we watched a rare occurrence in AA; a member being tossed out of a meeting. One of the bouncers suddenly stopped, returned to the door, opened it and yelled, "Keep coming back!". The roar of laughter that erupted could have been heard across the ocean in Japan. The chatter and light heartedness returned and we had a wonderful meeting.

After the meeting, I noticed several men outside the facility talking with the yeller who seemed to have calmed down. It felt good to be a member of a society that had the ability to handle an explosive situation in such a humorous, fair and graceful manner.

Take what you need and leave the rest!

The above phrase is a perfect description of my drinking!
When asked what my favourite drink was,
I replied in one word. MORE!!!

" I am suffering from an acute form of inverse paranoia!!!
I think my family and friends are holding secret meetings, planning ways to make me happy!"
