Things I might have heard...

Things overheard at 12 Step meetings...

  • Treat your mind like a bad neighborhood - don't go there alone.
  • Ten out of ten people die, so don't take life too seriously.
  • Be profound, funny or quiet. After you talk in a meeting, listen to hear if you said anything.
  • I don't need your help today.... Love, God.
  • Our sickness is between our ears.
  • Want to hear God laugh? Tell Him your plans.
  • Don't expect to learn about people from books; a person can't fit in a bookcase.
  • Now I can wake up and say, "Good morning, God!" rather than "Good God, it's morning!"
  • When I turned myself over to God, I took my life out of the hands of an idiot.
  • When the world comes to an end, it will do so without my permission.
  • If you pray for a Cadillac and God sends a jackass, ride it.
  • There's no one too dumb for this program, but it's possible to be too smart.
  • All I wanted was to control you, myself and everything else.
  • My disease is an elephant. As long as I remember it's there, I won't get stepped on.
  • Try praying. Nothing pleases God more than to hear a strange voice.
  • Reality can be hell when you're only visiting.

Enjoy your Sunday. (if you want to)

dAAve I've pictured you as a young man
about, well, mid-thirties. Now, I read Scott W call you "Oldie-but-goodie"...

Live and learn--not to believe this
Scott W....

Enjoyed your oldie but goodie sayings.
So the elephant won't step on me, I just hope it doesn't lie down!

Minus blackouts then, you're really 21
you can vote, do lots of things--but don't drink No Matter What NMW!

Thanks for clarification. Now, when you're 75 (me), THAT'S old. However, in ten years I expect to be walking or running that marathon--well, WALKING!
