Alcoholism Recovery Program

A collection of some of the witty, wise, and wacky things heard in meetings.

That accident scared me so bad that I rushed down to A.A. 2 years later.

If I give you a suggestion and you do what you want anyway, you are your own sponsor. If you do what I suggest, then I am your sponsor. 

I didn’t know when I first got here that it would be love of sobriety that keeps me sober, rather than fear of drinking.

Meetings are the most immediate way to connect to my Higher Power.

The greatest moments in recovery are when you’re out of ideas.

When gratitude is the topic, every hand in the room should go up.

I may need to make amends for the way I’ve made amends.

My sponsor threw the F word at me: Forgiveness.
