KISS and help others...

I haven't blogged for a while. Have been to a few AA functions and AA meetings. I went to a meeting recently and there were two oldtimers who hadn't seen each other for about 15 years.  One of them had met Dr Bob and Bill W.  He also danced with Marty Mann, and met the first black woman in AA. Both men had hearing aids and sat across the table from each other and yelled about their common past. Between the two of them, they had over 80 years sober in AA. The one fella said something I'll never forget. He said, "The minute I start thinking about myself, my spiritual condition goes to hell and I'm close to a drink." They both stressed an easy solution to a complicated problem. Keep it simple. Make a habit of going to meetings and don't drink in between.
Sound wisdom. I'm happy the holiday season is almost over...Thank God for another 24...

6 Weird Things...

From Carly

Hey AB,

TAG you're it! Here are the rules: Each player of this game starts with the 6 Weird Things About You. People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own 6 Weird Things as well as state this rule clearly. Have fun! :)


This was hard. I'm thinking weird things I've done?  Maybe. Or strange things about my person?  Anyway, I came up with these:

  • Between grades 8 and 9, I grew 8 inches. You can stop laughing now.

  • I have one stitch holding my right shoulder together.

  • I despise candy I have to suck on.

  • I can speak North Carolinian and Canadian in the same sentence.

  • I can slap my index finger against my middle finger really loud. It creeps people out.

  • Humiliation can make one desperate. In grade 7, I chewed nine warts off my right hand. It worked. They never returned.


Have a sober weekend!

OUCH! A good reminder...

Happy Birthday Rex!

Gung Ho...

Yes, I am still here. Has anyone switched to Google's new Beta blog? Just curious. I've been in a real funk. I'm trying to put on a happy face for the holidays, but truth be told, right now, I think they suck, and I can't wait for them to be over. I'm still trying to do good things to get me closer to my Higher Power. It isn't easy for an agnostic. I have faith that someday soon, I will come to trust in God totally. More often than not, I still buy into the line that "I'm a piece of shit" and not worthy of a loving God.
I have to remember that when I think that way, I'm ragging on God's handiwork.  That's how my disease wants me to think. Thanks for visiting and thank God I'm still clean and sober.
