Al-anon jokes

I thought that it would be fun to post a bit of humor from the Al-Anon perspective. Yep, we do have a sense of humor, believe it or not!
_____________________________________________

Three people, one of whom was a codependent, were in line to be executed at the guillotine. The first person stuck his head in the hole, the rope was cut, and the blade fell, only to stop an inch above the person's neck. The executioners saw it as a sign from God and so decided to let the person go.
The next person put his head in the hole, the rope was cut, and again, the blade stopped an inch above the person's neck. That person, too, was released.
As the Al-Anon walked up for his turn at the guillotine, he turned to the executioner and said: "You know, I think I know how to fix that."

If an alcoholic says something in the forest and there's no Al-anon there to hear him, is he still wrong?

How do Alanon's have sex with you?
They just detach and let you screw yourself!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How can you tell you're at an Alanon meeting?
Someone spills their coffee and everyone gets up to clean it up.

An Al-Anon amends:
I'm sorry that I was being a bitch last night when you were being such an a*#hole.

I hope that you are having a good Sunday. I'm heading back home after being out of town. It was a quick trip. And then tomorrow I get to go on the boat which will be great. The weather is going to be comfortable. I doubt if our heat is over with, but I'll take whatever days I can get under 85 F this time of year.

I'll catch up with each of you as soon as I can.

  7. Those were funny.... the even funnier thing is that we can only share with other alanonics because they are the only ones who would get them. lol Have a blessed weekend Syd!

  8. It's funny: Alanons make fun of themselves.

    Alcoholics make fun of them (Alanons) ALSO!

  13. Oh it is so good to laugh at life and ourselves in the process it can get a little too serious sometimes in the rooms. Being able to laugh at myself has helped me to heal and to look at my character defects.

    Q: What kind of insurance do co-dependents have?
    A: My fault insurance.

  17. hmm I can relate to a bunch of that lol...

    It's been a long while since I was a "double winner" and going to al-anon meetings along with my AA recovery program. My wife and I are both sober alcoholics. It can be a real adventure sometimes.

  22. It seems like someone smart said that a sign of recovery is beginning to be able to laugh at yourself. That sounds right to me. (Rule 62 & all)
    Thanks for the chuckle. I'm glad you got to go have a nice long holiday. :)

  23. A friend just pointed me to this site. Thanks for starting my day off so well. An Al-Anon sponsor I had many years ago threw out a challenge at a convention, saying that we had 12 Steps, and 12 Traditions, so we should have at least 12 Jokes about ourselves. So I started collecting. I've got more than 12 now, but my favorite is still:
    Q: What happens to a drowning Al-Anon?
    A: Someone else's life flashes before their eyes.
