About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

SOBER NOT SOMBER. Is Recovery supposed to be fun?

Chapter 1. BILL'S STORY page 16
There is, however, a VAST amount of FUN about it all.

Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD page 132
We aren't a glum lot.

Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD page 132
If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn't want it.

Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD page 132
We think cheerfulness and laughter make for usefulness.

Chapter 2. THERE IS A SOLUTION page 17
There exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding
which is indescribably wonderful

Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD page 132
Everybody know that those in bad health,
and those who seldom play,
do not laugh much.
