Where are we now??? do we ever laugh again? Are we still funny? Are we still who we were before ?
I personally can tell you I have laughed more sober than I can ever remember laughing DRUNK. While in recovery I shared a house with 4 other women of all ages (mostly young) and we laughed at ourselves and each other. Not all were alcoholics either some were meth heads some were other drugs. We were all from different walks of life and different economical classification. But we all had one thing in common WE WERE ALL ADDICTED to something. I remember before getting help I isolated a lot so to be thrown into the middle of strange women without alcohol for 30 days scared the shit out of me. But not a day went by that we didn’t support one another and laughed the whole time. Laughter is great and it’s free and it doesn’t come with any strings attached. We have maintained our relationships even though we have went back to our “normal lives”. It’s still a daily battle for us all but we are making it thru with laughter, being open about our struggles and disappointments. If your ever driving down Nicholasville rd during the day you may see me laughing so hard I can’t breath and that’s due to listening to AA Funny Speakers on you tube almost every day. We all have funny recovery stories and if you want a good laugh amidst a great recovery story turn the radio off and put your ear pods in and laugh among the tears and road rage and connect to others just like you, fighting the same battles as you, switch to the story’s of a thousand laughs. By the time you get where your going your mood is completely transformed
