Alcoholism Recovery Program

In the end, I was deteriorating faster than I could lower my standards. 

As long as I resent you, I am giving you the remote control to my life.

I still had my teeth so I didn’t think I was that bad. That was my standard.

There is a smorgasbord in A.A. as to what’s available, and I stayed stuck at the bread station.

I was waking up in puddles of urine—and hoping it was mine.

My sober life looked like everyone else’s drunk story.

To think that maybe I’m wrong is a powerful spiritual experience.
