A man telling his story:

" I was following a parked truck..." :lol:

"If it weren't for self-pity, I wouldn't get any."

"In AA I got to say I was broken. Then, I was ashamed I was broken, & angry I was ashamed, & a failure that I was angry... & 'round it went."

That was good, Sunlight!!! I can always count on you to keep me giggling!!! :lol: Thanks for all that you do here on the site... Daily, I look forward to reading your shares!

Here's one I hear from time to time, when someone is reading Chapter 5, How it works, in a meeting:

"Sought through prayer and mediCATION to improve my conscious contact with God, as we understood Him." :lol: :lol:

At a meeting:

Old-timer: "Every morning I ask God to help keep me sober that day, and every night I thank Him for helping me stay sober."

Newcomer: "How do you know it was God that helped you stay sober?"

Old-timer: "He was the only one I asked!"

Yep... and I told the officers what I really believed to be the truth...
"It wasn't my fault!!! I stopped at the stop sign and was waiting for it to turn green. And, the other guy just slammed into my rear end... and the guy knocked me into the truck that I was following! And, then he drove off!"

Problem was: I was in the middle of a long street in a dark residential area... at around 3 a.m. in the morning... and there were no intersections nearby! And... the truck I thought I was following was parked! :oops:

When the cops got there... I was trying to push my truck backwards up the street to get it to my house but the fender was wrapped around the wheel and my feet couldn't get enough traction to push it! :oops: :oops:
