A.A. Life Lessons

The average person's experience with Alcoholics Anonymous can
actually prove quite enlightening, especially if one is still possessed
of a ridiculous notion that there are still good folks in the world!

Oh well...we all know where those 'good intentions' lead!

Here are some quick and easy life lessons so you can skip the
meeting and just absorb this into your consciousness!

1. Trust no one.
2. You really are completely on your own. So, D.I.Y.!
3. People never say what they mean or mean what they say.
4. 'Cliques' don't end in high school.
5. People will show you who they really are; believe the worst.
6. Ego never dies.
7. People never really change.
8. The nicer someone seems, the more afraid you should be.
9. Everybody has an agenda, and everyone wants something from you.
10. There is no such thing as charity.
11. Just because people believe in and promote something, it
       doesn't make it any more true.
12. Look out for yourself first, last, and always.
Learn them well...these are the real 12 Steps to a better life, free
of naive, delusional, fantasy-thought.

Heal yourself, and just don't drink. It really isn't that complicated.
