Re: 30th November Daily Reflection

"I probably still have another drunk in me - I just don't know if I have another "get sober" in me." A few friends have had their last drunk end up in death very quickly. Shockingly so. A few friends have gone back to drinking and bounced in and out for years. They are a puzzle to me. Then there are...

I don't go back to my last drunk for the reason I stopped drinking but how the last several years of drinking turned me in to someone I never want to be again.
BINGO! :idea:

Re: Speaker tapes

Man I have heard things like a your higher power can be a "jack rabbit" or a "door knob." If these two things make sense to someone they are most definitely in sad shape. =confused :lol: =biggrin :lol: Yes! I was totally cracking myself up when I literally went and manipulated the door knob! I'd st...

Re: Speaker tapes

I have noticed in a number of your recent posts that you have used sarcasm to get your argument across. I have a dry sense of humor and my reply was in the spirit of laughing at myself and with Paige at a struggle that it seems we have shared in common. Yup. We have shared this struggle since my be...

Re: 29th November Daily Reflection

I fit in everywhere - but I "knew" it was all in my mind... I "KNEW" I fit in no where. Almost from the moment I crossed through the doors of AA I knew these were my people. I can't really explain it, but they spoke my mind. They were the inner ME. Not just one of the hats I wore to fit in everywher...

Re: And the Dalai Lama said . . . . .

Who can argue with compassion and kindness?

Seriously ~ is there an argument against it?

"Love and tolerance of others is our code." BB page 84.
IS this a code like a secret code ring of AA Fellowship?
or
IS this a code like a statutory law?

Is there an argument against it?

I always forget to mention that comfort did not come for 7+ years. And "comfort" is still more like tolerance. :lol:

Re: Speaker tapes

I think the Big Book calls it 100 forms of fear. Page 62: Selfishness - self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemin...

Re: Remembering Your Last Drunk?

In the AA meeting I just went to, there were multiple comments about one's "last drunk". And mine (right now, but I am in no way safe to not drink again) is pretty dull. For a lot of people, the last drunk seems to be a major problem and a corresponding spiritual experience. Anyone have the alterna...

Re: Twenty Four Hours A Day

I try not to want what I don't deserve.
I have a friend who says, "If I got everything I deserved I would be in jail or dead!"

I have to be careful what I wish for! My HP has a perverse sense of humor. 8) :lol: :roll: :lol: :shock: :mrgreen:
