Happy, Joyous, and Free


“But why shouldn’t we laugh?

We have recovered,

and have been given

the power to help others.

. . . We are sure God wants us

to be happy, joyous, and free.”


BB,   p. 132 & 133


As a drunk I laughed at racial, ethnic, sexist,

and regional ( read Bubba) jokes because I was trying

to put others down so I could get my self-esteem

up out of the gutter.

Today I laugh at me because the program of A. A.

has given me the ability to be honest about how

many bad mistakes I made while drinking.

Sad but true and enough to make a grown person cry

however, I have cried enough and sobriety has taught me

how to get over it and to laugh at the past.

Today, laugh with someone,  not at someone.

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.
