Things you might hear in a meeting...

One Day At A Time

Keep Coming Back

Let go and Let God  

Keep It Simple 

Keep It Simple, stupid!  

Easy Does It  

Easy does it… But do it 

God is...  

This too shall pass

Live and Let Live  

First Things First


But for the grace of God  


Careful what you pray for

Turn It Over  

I came, I came to, I came to believe (steps 1,2,3)

I can't, He can..........I think I'll let him (steps 1,2,3) 

It works if you work it  

Faith without works is dead  

Just For Today 

More will be revealed  

Pass It On

Stick with the winners  

Principles Before Personalities

Trust god.........Clean house........Help others 

Does anybody know what that means!? ....

To thine own self be true

Sobriety is a journey... not a destination 

We are only as sick as our secrets

Act as if......... 

Expect miracles...

We have a disease that tells us we don't have a disease

If it works.........don't fix it!

Live in the NOW 

Keep Right Size  

Honesty without compassion is brutality

I am not much but I am all I think about 

There are no coincidences in AA

The disease is alcoholISM, not alcoholWASM! 

Be part of the solution, not the problem

Look for similarities, rather than differences 

Nothing is so bad, a drink won't make it worse 

Sponsors... Have one - Use one - Be one 

Some are sicker than others

The steps are not quaaludes

Keep an open mind

Poor me... poor me............ pour me another drink  

Willingness is the key

No pain... No gain

Keep the plug in the jug 

Do It Sober 

Let it begin with me  

God is never late  

Relapse is not a requirement  

Don't leave (quit) 5 minutes before the miracle happens  

Bring the body and the mind will follow

You spot it, you got it

You still spot it.... you still got it

We're all here because we're not all there  

Alcoholism is an equal opportunity destroyer 

Practice an attitude of gratitude  

It's the first drink that gets you drunk  

You either is... or you ain't  

Decisions aren't forever  

Remember your last drunk  

You are not alone

Take what you can use and leave the rest  

It takes time 

“Time” takes time  To keep it, you have to give it away  

Go to 90 meetings in 90 days

”90 in 90”  

Try it for 90 days, and if you don't like it, we'll gladly refund your misery

Sick and tired of being sick and tired  

Where you go .......there you are   

Don't drink, read the big book, and go to meetings 

Walk slow, drink water, read the Big Book

Use the 24-hour plan

The Secret: one alcoholic talking to another.

Take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth 

Try not to place conditions on your sobriety 

When all else fails, follow directions  

Make use of the telephone therapy  

None of us got here form drinking too much coffee

We have a disease that tells us we don't have a disease

We have a living problem, not a drinking problem

We have a thinking problem, not a drinking problem

Call your sponsor before, not after, you take the first drink  

What goes around, comes around 

Change is a process, not an event  

Pain is the touchstone of progress

My daily sobriety is contingent on my spiritual condition

The road to sobriety is a simple journey for confused people with a complicated disease  

Let go of old ideas  

AA spoils your drinking! 

Respect the anonymity of others  

Backsliding begins when knee-bending stops 

Try to replace guilt with gratitude  

AA is an education without graduation 

Take time to think the thing through  

The person with the most sobriety at a meeting is the one who got up earliest that morning 

We all have another drunk left in us but we don't know if we have another recovery left in us 

To be forgiven we must forgive 

The 12 Steps tell us how it works; the 12 Traditions tell us why it works.....

Help is only a phone call away 

There is a God and I'm not it 

Sobriety delivers everything alcohol promised Around AA or in AA ? 

You can't give away what you don't have 

One drink is too many and thousand not enough 

The first step is the only step a person can work perfectly 

Accept Your Admission  

Have the Courage To Change

H.A.L.T.- Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired 

You are not required to like it, you're only required to DO IT 

We in AA don't carry the alcoholic; we carry the message

We had to quit playing God 

We are not human beings having spiritual experiences; we are spiritual beings having human experiences 

Work the program from the waist up 

12 Step Recovery didn't open the gates of heaven to let me in, it opened the gates of hell and let me out 

H.O.W.: honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness 

First we stayed sober because we have to, then we stay sober because we are willing to, finally we stay sober because we want to

Everyday is a gift that is why we call it "The Present" 

Every recovery from alcoholism began with one sober hour 

Don't compare... Identify 

Don't intellectualize... Utilize 

Even my worst day in sobriety is better than my best day drunk 

RULE 62: Don't take yourself so damn seriously!!!!!!! 

AA has a wrench to fit every nut that walks through a meeting room door 

Live in the here and now 

How does one become an "old-timer"? Don't drink and don't die! 

Faith is our greatest gift, Sharing with others our greatest responsibility 

If you want to drink, That is your business, If you want to quit, that is AA's business 

The elevator is broken... Use the steps 

Let it begin with me 

When all else fails... The directions are in the big book 

Anonymity is so important it's half of our name

All you need to start your own AA meeting is a resentment and a coffee pot! 

Live in the NOW 

The "War" is over 

AA is not something you join, It's a way of life 

God: Good Orderly Direction 

Be as enthusiastic about AA as you were about your drinking 

You received without cost, now give without charge 

Humility is our acceptance of ourselves 

Trying to pray is praying 

Get it ---give it---grow in it 

This is a selfish program 

Ego: Edge God Out 

Keep your sobriety first to make it last 

I drank: too much---too often---too long  

Religion is for those who fear god.........spirituality is for those who have been to hell and back 

There are no atheists in foxholes

You are exactly where god wants you to be 

God will never give you more than… You can handle 

Slow but sure 

In AA we say a "coincidence" is a miracle in which god chooses to remain anonymous 

It takes the good and bad AA meeting----the good and bad AA talk -----to make this fellowship "work" 

Give "Time".......time 

From weakness comes strength

We forgive to be forgiven

We give it away to keep it

We suffer to get well

We surrender to win

From darkness comes light

From dependence we found independence

Slippers in AA use the R.D.P.---Revolving Door Policy 

There is a God and I'm not it 

The road to disappointment (resentment) is paved with expectation 

Be nice to newcomers day they may be your sponsor 

Denial is not a river in Egypt! 

Guilt is the gift that keeps on giving 

Depression is anger toward inward 

Alcoholics heal from the outside in.........but feel from the inside out 

If it is meant to be...........I can't stop it

If it isn't god's will ............I can't make it happen 

What you hear here, who see here… let it stay here…. Alcoholism is the only disease that tells you you're all right
