“But why

shouldn’t we laugh ?

We have recovered,

and have been given

the power to help others.”


BB,   p. 132


As the drunk I laughed at bad jokes and

at the misfortunes of others.

In recovery I have learned to laugh at myself

realizing that throughout all of my life

the joke had been on me.

Funny, which is just another word for irony,

that in recovery, humility teaches one that helping others

is the way to happy, joyous, and free.

Today, follow Rule No. 62,

‘Don’t take yourself too damn seriously!’

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
