Alcoholism Recovery Program

We may not always be able to meet calamity with serenity, but we can meet calamity with sobriety.

After this meeting I’ll have my emotional support burrito and I have Netflix all queued up.

One always led to two, and two always led to too many.

Toward the end, I was drinking alone, in my basement. You know—the way a gentleman does.

I found the Promises offensive. I had worked hard on my attitude and outlook and didn’t want it to change, just because it was killing me.

The Universe is always conspiring on my behalf.

I condemn the recovery in entire area codes, and then remember it’s not what I can get out of a meeting, it’s what I can bring to it.
