Alcoholism Recovery Program

God accepts counterfeit prayers as if they were real.

Alcohol gave me a feeling of peace I didn’t know I was missing.

My half-measure sobriety included just enough meetings for abstinence and a place-holder sponsor.

We used to plug the phone into the wall. Not to charge them, but that’s how they worked. It was called a “landline.”

Alcohol wasn’t my problem. My problem was alcoholism and I was using alcohol to treat it.

If you can get out of a relationship for under $10,000 and no jail time, it’s a success.

There are some days we just have to root for midnight.
