THE COLLECTION FOR 'THE BOOK' BEGINS:
'PENNIES FROM HEAVEN.
BOTTLES FROM HELL.'
took a long time to realize who my Higher Power was. It was not a
boss, nor a director, a coach, president of a company, share holder, or
something in the sky. My Higher Power was all around me, within
me, and next to me as a team player. The better I communicated
well with my team mate, the better I performed. My team mate was
always ready to listen and to make suggestions to me.
I like to think of life like
a box of Cracker Jacks. I cannot wait until I open a new day and
see what the prize will be.
is the criminal. We are merely accessories to the crime. We
can stop being involved in the crime if we choose.
Some mouths need more
novocaine than others to silence them.
I may not have been good at
marriage, but I found that I was great at divorce.
Thinking that drinking will
help you sleep better is like putting a band-aid on cancer.
There are water filters, gas
filters, oil filters, air filters and who
knows how many other types of filters. Too bad there wasn't a
mouth filter that could treat our words coming out.
We may say that we are
pursuaded by others or the crowd/group to have a drink. Who is
kidding who? We
are easily persuaded by ourselves.
I had nothing to live for but
I was too frightened to die.
When I stopped drinking I
felt like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.
We are all like acrobats
flying high and AA is our safety net.
I am going to take out my
life tool repair kit. One story at a time.
The ones that love you do not
drag on you. They help pull you along.
It took what it took and it
is what it is.
I was willing to give my advice
freely. After all, I was not taking it.
I can't remember when the war
of drinking started. I do know the day I declared an end to that
I drank to feel heavenly, yet
I felt like hell.
I can remember watching the
cookoo and waited for the clock to go off.
When I was drinking, it was a
tough uphill walk. I should know, I fell down it many times.
I noticed my body was going
to hell. I stopped just in time so my mind would not go there
I could not get an A in
Drinking 101. I did get a lot of failures though.
When it came to drinks, it
was all for me and none for you.
I believe there is
a switch somewhere between my mouth and my ears. It is difficult
to have my mouth and my ears on at the same time.
I used to see a LOT of BLACK
OUT. Now I see a LOT of GREEN OUT.
Heading towards recovery is
when you decide to take 12 steps forward and not 10 steps backwards.
I am looking for a dumpster
that has ALCOHOLISM DISPOSAL written on the side.
I don't own this seat.
I borrow it one meeting at a time.
Have you noticed
that just about every business has greeters now days? Welcome to
here, welcome to there, welcome to everywhere. Well - I suggest
you take a shopping cart to an AA meeting where you will be greeted and
leave with a shopping cart full of Serenity and Sobriety.
I never knew I had black
outs. I slept right through them.
I was at the beach and a man
celebrating his 60th birthday yelled out "I feel like I am 40
again." The last time I felt like I was 40, I was 20.
The program is a plan for a
lifetime of daily living.
There is no extension cord
from your couch to a meeting. And leave the remote behind.
Open your mouth and insert
Notice that the Doctor's tale
starts with 'I' and ends with 'GOD'.
Once in a while we need to
follow a school bus and slow down.
I need a companion dog
because it takes too long to train a wife (or husband).
You will know great when a
drunk drags you to an AA meeting.
The addiction and obsession
spoke to me everyday.
I am now collecting days of
sobriety. One at a time.
We should write a book called
'EXCUSES FOR DUMMIES'.
Loneliness for me was sitting
around by myself and listening for Goffer farts.
Helping you is helping me.
Our mouth is GOD's channel to
pass the message.
Be grateful to your
puppies. They never stumble, nor slur, nor blackout. They
just wag some loving.
A call can be rewarding if we
just listen. I called an AA friend that was going through cancer
treatment, just to tell him if he needed any help to call me. He
said to me: If you need any help - call me.
Pennies are from heaven and
bottles are from hell.
I was always told to clean up
my dishes after I ate off them. So I felt that it meant I needed
to clean out the bottom of the bottle also.
Then there was the man that
said: I am a grown man trapped in a child's mind.
How dare Walgreens contribute
to my illness by selling alcohol.
Once in a while we need to
have a check up from the neck up.
Change your way. Change
I keep hearing people say
they are from Upstate New York. I am trying to figure where to
draw the line where that begins on the map.
I blame the liquor companies
for all of my confusion. They changed from ounces to those dang
ML's, Liters, and other stuff I didn't understand. I totally
forgot how much I wanted to drink anymore. So I drank it all to
be on the safe side.
If I was a good worker drunk,
I must be a great worker sober.
If someone really upsets you,
aim and shoot a prayer at them.
I am writing a
letter to Garmin: Dear Mr. Garmin. Lola (my GPS) keeps telling me
"YOU ARE HOME" every time I go by one of my past favorite liquor pick
up spots. Now I have to adjust my GPS to think another way.
Suit up. Show up.
I took all of my problems and
chewed on them until all of the flavor was gone.
When the desire to drink hits
the fan, I've learned to just shut the fan off.
My thoughts no longer feel
like they have gone through a pencil sharpener.
I made no plan for
today. Gosh, what a great plan.
Whenever you think Serenity
is out of reach, be like a giraffe and reach a little higher.
Don't go away ~
there is more to come.
If you do go away, remember to
