todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that we read "Me an Alcoholic?" yesterday morning in our Big Book study. A few high points and realizations from that story ...
... I'm no longer a coin with two faces
... the insidiousness of alcoholism is an appalling thing
... as the author wrote about his last drinking binge, he said, "it is impossible to reproduce my despair."
... I knew from my general reading that alcoholism was irrevesible and fatal.
that I learned many years ago that when I teach something, I learn a lot more about it
for the crazy laughter I experience and observe in AA meetings
that I'm comfortable being home, by myself
We only go around once. There's really no time to be afraid. So stop. Try something you’ve never tried. Teach it. Do it. Risk it.
