. Before I came into AA, I called the home repair service to
come out and check my house for carbon monoxide poisoning. I just

"There are really only two things that I want from this program. I
want to be as well as I thought I was when I had 90 days of sobriety,
and I want to be able to take my own inventory as well as I take
everyone elses."

It's been my experience that I learn about tolerance when I hear
others being intolerant, I learn about humility from the arrogant, I
learn about gratitude from listening to the ungrateful, I learn about
sharing the solution when I hear others wallowing in the problem. TO
ME I sound so healthy until I realize that I am learning these things
because I am seeing my character defects and shortcomings reflected
in others . . .

... sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly! ;-)
