“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.
