STOPPING DRINKING, or NOT STARTING AGAIN?




I never had a problem stopping drinking.
My problem is "not starting" again!

A man who is separated from his wife, gets drunk one night and staggers home in the dead of winter. Snow everywhere is piled deep.  He tips himself towards their front door on which he begins pounding.

After about 15 minutes his wife opens an upstairs window and asks him what he wants.

He backs up a little to see her, and calls up to her, "Honey, I'm half frozen.  Can't I please stay here tonight?"

"Yes, of course you can", she says. "I thought you wanted to come inside."

So...sweet-peeps--Peace and Love are yours for the asking,
 

And just think
If we don't drink

We'll be sober another day...

Thank God for Alcoholics Anonymous. AA has taught me how to "not start" drinking again.

AA and Al-Anon have taught me how to "start" really living.

I heard a speaker say "I don't have a drinking problem, I have a stopping problem." Thank God we have a program to learn to stay stopped! Have a great weekend! TK

I think the hidden message here might be - if you're going to get smashed, do it in the South.
