Recovery Help
"My first sponsor said she did not know if we had a generation gap or if I had brain damage. Although only in my twenties at the time, the destruction to my body did not leave for over a year, and the destruction to my mind and soul for many more years. I just had to hang on and stay in the middle of the pack. Anyone can do the same. You don’t need medical benefits, insurance, rich relatives or homes to hock for a 30 day check-in Hilton miracle. I know with absolute certainty that God will meet you anywhere."

Keeping Pure in a Bar Joke
A fellow in a bar notices a woman come in on a fairly regular basis, always alone. After the second week, he made his move. "No, thank you," she said, politely. "This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I'm keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love." "That must be rather difficult," the man replied. "Oh, I don't mind too much," she said. "But, it has my husband pretty upset."
