I saw these in an online SA group. So I'm sharing these:

D.E.N.I.A.L. - Don't Even Notice I Am Lying

H.O.W. - Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness

S.L.I.P. - Sobriety Lost It's Priority / So Long, I'm Perfect/Something Lame I Planned

If you don't want to slip, stay out of slippery places!

B.I.B.L.E. - Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth
Take it as you will.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.
My Way - No, My Way! - No My Way!

You're as sick as your secrets.
Most of the time, folks see it, know it, or feel it in some way or another, anyway. Get it?

S.O.B.E.R. - Son Of a Bitch, Everything's Real

[I'm] Frustrated, Insecure, Neurotic, Emotional

Face Everything And Recover/False Evidence Appearing Real

Not Using The Steps

Edging God Out

Don't Even Notice I Am Lying

[Don't get too] Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired

Happy Our Program Exists

Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness

Good Orderly Direction

B.I.G. B.O.O.K.
Believing In God Beats Our Old Knowledge

Any Change To Improve Our Nature

People Relying On God Relaying A Message

Solutions To Every Problem Sober

Keep It Simple, Sweetheart

Seven missed meetings makes one weak.

If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.
If you keep doin' what your doin'
you'll keep gettin' what your gettin'

A.B.C. - Acceptance, Belief, Change

A.C.T.I.O.N. - Any Change Toward Improving One’s Nature

E.G.O. - Edging God Out

F.A.I.L.U.R.E. - Fearful, Arrogant, Insecure, Lonely, Unsure, Resentful, Empty

H.E.L.P. - Hope, Encouragement, Love, Patience

T.I.M.E. - Things I Must Learn

The elevator is broken - take the steps!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

In AA, first we remove the anesthesia, then we operate.

Fellowship is the meeting after the meeting.

Let us love you until you learn to love yourself.

Isolation is the dark room where we develop our 'negatives'.

Compare and despair.

Don't compare you insides to other people's outsides.

Let go or get dragged.

If your spinning your wheels, try getting out of the driver's seat.

If your butt falls off, pick it up, put it in a paper bag, and carry it to a meeting.

Remember the cost of your last drink or drug when observing the 7th tradition.

Take an action, then let go of the results.

Carry the message, not the mess.

Don't tease your disease.

It's the first car of a train that kills you, not the caboose.

Relapse is NOT a requirement.

Relapse begins long before you pick up the drink/drug.

If you hang around a barbershop long enough, eventually you'll get a haircut.

Those who matter, don't mind; those who mind, don't matter.

Expectations are preconceived resentments.

Serenity isn't freedom from the storm; it is peace within the storm.

Don't speak unless you can improve on silence.

You don't need to "find God"; He isn't lost.

Tell it to your sponsor, or you will be telling it to a bartender.

Surrendering means you don't have to fight any more.

I didn't use drugs, drugs used me.

You can be just a crazy sober as you were drunk, you'll just remember it the next day.



always liked the denial and sober ones

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."
