 Al-Anon Slogans in a Poem - By Coach Papa
   
 
Slogans in a Poem by Coach Papa

First Things First - I have heard it said - Be Honest With yourself, - get out of your head - You can Feel Good -About Saying "No" - Keep Coming Back to - Talk And Grow - Easy Does It - sounds real nice - If you Keep It Simple - you don't roll the dice - Live And Let Live - Brings it back to you - They're in recovery, - you are, too - What's to Be will Be - So,  Let Go & Let God - Just wait and see - That one Day At A Time - Is more than a phrase - In Al-Anon, - it's the phrase that pays - Think! Listen And Learn - or watch bridges burn - Keep An Open Mind, - Now it's your turn -  Is your serenity worth it - Just, Fake It 'Till You Make It! - I am pretty sure, You can - Cause, How - important is it? - In time, you will understand - It's true, we're all different, - But, together we can make it - If you feel that you can't, - Then, once again, fake it - When you let it begin with me - The fog will raise, - the sun will shine - Your eyes will see - Slogans are there - For you to use - Say one every day - So you don't sing the blues - It works when you work it - We say and it's true - We're all here to help - But your recovery is up to you.

I must say that SLOGANS helped me arrange all my thoughts into an order that made sense. I am all about order. :)

Hi! This is Hope, a new member. I like the slogan: Be honest to yourself. Get out of your head.
It is hard to get out of your head but that's why we come to meetings. Thank you for sharing.

I like that.  Because when I am in an emotional state, I need something I can say really quickly.  I like that one: I can feel good about saying NO!  I was always taught I had no needs and I had to allow myself to get beat up, so that others could feel good.  I am the Black Sheep of my family. I stopped playing the role.  Everything went to hell right after.  I have a right to my own life and not be the black sheep.
