Slogans

Spread friendliness. Greet people with a smile
Be patient with others, but mostly be patient with yourself
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be
If you are not happy today, then what day are you waiting on?
My disease wants me dead. But, it will settle for low-grade misery.
Action may not bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action
The future comes one day at a time, Choice, not chance, determines destiny
Willingness is doing what I have to, whether I want to or not
Go the extra mile, it’s never crowded. Faith is the only known cure for fear.
The “Fellowship” is NOT the “Program” The Steps are the “Program”
No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care
If you feel the need to get even, try getting even with those that have helped you
