Misery Loves Companies

Used 2013-07-01 Higher Power (AlKHall Anonymous Sobriety Recovery)

Choose your Higher Power wisely

Overheard in the rooms – in prison:

I’m gonna try that God thing, because I’m just done making decisions on my own. It’s like I have 2 companies in my head – one that manufactures BS and another that buys it.

This was overheard by a woman in recovery who volunteers in a prison ministry as part of her Step 12.

[Thank you Miss Anne Thrope for sharing this with me.]


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home. http://about.me/AlKHall

  1. I just wrote to Christy over at Running on Sober the other day, and I said, “I’m not sure I even need people in my life to talk to, since I have so many in my head.” For the record, they manufacture and purchase the same BS as listed above!

    Thanks for the smile this morning, I needed it!
