Relationship Quotes for Recovering Addicts

Here are a few relationship quotes and tips that i have accumulated over the years after being involved with many shattered lives and relationships.

  • Active alcoholics addicts don’t have relationships; they take hostages
  • “zipper slipper” – self explanatory!
  • There is a “slip” under every skirt – ( an oldie from the politically incorrect days of AA that still is important today)
  • The lesson I must learn is simply that my control is limited to my own behavior, my own attitudes

“You Can’t Unscrew Somebody”

I feed my body all kinds of crap, when do I ever feed my soul a proper diet?

This website is about recovery – not making money – but it wouldn’t hurt to pay a few web hosting charges if you  decided to visit one of the sponsors ads… I have kept outside ads to a minumum so its not so frustrating to read. Hate those pages with an ad between every paragraph.

Have a great One Day at a Time! Dean 🙂
