Overheard from AA speaker Tareq K.: “Half my mind creates bullshit and the other half buys it.” So very true for this alcoholic!
From Al-Anon’s “One Day at a Time in Al-Anon”: “Never trouble trouble until trouble troubles you” Love it!
Heard on a speaker tape: (on the sentence on pg. 30 of the big book: The idea that somehow, someday he will control and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker) “When I controlled my drinking, I wasn’t enjoying it. When I was enjoying it, I wasn’t controlling it”
“We need to be treated extraordinarily just to feel ordinary.” – from a speaker tape
A newly sober member vents… “I’m mad when others drink, I’m mad when they don’t!!”
Overheard tonight at meeting: “This is the only fellowship where the more you screw up, the more they want you”
