Home Sweet Home


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful


that my home group (A.A.) studies the traditions regularly. I heard early on that the 12 steps help keep us from killing ourselves and the 12 traditions help us to keep from killing each other. Thus, I think they're important.


for my past


for my future


"Pause when agitated" is one of the most useful of suggestions I've ever heard. I knew nohting about that concept before I came into recovery. I use it often and I use it well.


The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot.

Ah Yes "12 steps help keep us from killing ourselves and the 12 traditions help us to keep from killing each other." Sounds as if someone has had experience in service and committee meetings, That is what I got from them, however that is not entirely true, I learned a lot about ego and humility, not to mention team work and agreeing to disagree. It always amazed me the wonderous and sometimes miraculous things that came from these meetings and committess, after some of the craziness that sometimes went on in them. I wonder if that is where they got the inspiration for the bumper stickers " Sober and Crazy" and/or "Clean and Crazy"
I know I learned and grew so much from the seemingly crazy meetings, I believe it also taught me to be a better supervisor and Manager
