Laughter is good medicine, a phrase heard often in life, now it becomes a reality for the recovering alcoholic. Today, I can dare to laugh, dare to have hope for the future, and dare to believe that life does not have to be the misery we have had before recovery. I can now laugh with others when I make a mistake. I know they are not laughing at me, they are laughing with me; at my misstep, my flub. Hey, we’re human after all and capable of making errors at any time and it’s okay to laugh with others – it’s good for the soul, and good for our ego’s which have been a little over-sensitive because of our behavior while we were drinking. So loosen up, have a laugh, remember the time you did something so human, so wrong that it made others laugh – well they were not laughing at you they were laughing at their own ability to be human and therefor imperfect.

  1. What a surprise, how restoring, what a relief, when I heard the laughter in the rooms…the affirmation that we had all done the same thing, or almost the same thing or a helluva lot worse or whatever, that we are all in this thing together and “getting better all the time”, as the song goes…
    What a blessing.
    Grateful for the Gift

  2. Top of the snowy Colorado day family,
    Uno mas common denominator that’s real about AA meetings, there’s abundantly amount of laughter; and that’s muy bien.

    The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.
    Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”
    The Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”
    “What that tell you?” asked Tonto.
    The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, “Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What’s it tell YOU, Tonto?”
    “You dumber than buffalo. Someone stole tent.”

    It’s a good to have a good day.

    • Lol Clay. THANK YOU FOR THAT BELLY LAUGH!!! Today is the Celebration of life for a dear AA with almost 35 yrs. I get to go sober. I am blessed to be able to sing a song on my guitar. Her favorite. Make me a channel of your peace. She loved life, and at the end was happy. Being with someone at the end of their life is rough, but I know without a shadow of a doubt that she’s with God. It’s an awesome day!!!
