It Makes No Sense

Misery is optional.
You can’t think your way
into a new way of living…
you have to live your way
into a new way of thinking.
It’s a simple program
for complicated people.
The newcomer is
the most important person
in any meeting.
Many meetings, many chances;
few meetings, few chances;
no meetings, no chances.
To keep what you have,
you have to give it away.
If you do what you always did,
you’ll get what you always got.
Resentment is like drinking poison
and expecting someone else to die.
Nothing is so bad, a drink won’t make it worse.
Nobody ever found recovery
as a result of an intellectual awakening.
An addict alone is in bad company.
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
One drink is too many
and a thousand not enough.
Seven days without a meeting makes one weak.
I’m perfectly imperfect.
Circumstances do not
MAKE us who we are,
they REVEAL to us who we are.
We’re all here because we’re not all there.
You can DO what you want,
or you can GET what you want.
To keep it, you have to give it away.
