05-09: How Funny…Really!

How Funny…Really!

People who laugh actually live longer than those who don’t laugh.  Few persons realize that health actually varies according to the amount of laughter.
~Dr. James Walsh~

It’s true that people can literally worry themselves to death.  Lighten up, and take time to enjoy yourself.  How many times do we look back upon circumstances that, at the time, did not seem to have any humor in them at all, and laugh about them now.
Thought for the day
One of the promises we will experience in recovery is; “We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it”.  This also applies to the overwhelmingly stupid and funny things we did while we were worshipping our drug of choice.  When we look back at our lives it is imperative that we maintain a sense of humor while we recover.  Let us not take ourselves so seriously that we fail to lighten our load when such opportunities arise.  Let’s in a spirit of fellowship use one of God’s greatest gifts, humor, to bring about healing.  Why not just laugh about ourselves now, when in recovery we can begin to see and feel the benefits of laughter. 

Abraham named his son whom Sarah bore to him Isaac [laughter].  And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.  And Sarah said God has made me to laugh; all who hear will laugh with me.
~Genesis 21:3,5,6 (Amp)~

Blessed are you who hunger now, For you shall be filled.  Blessed are you who weep now, For you shall laugh.  Blessed are you when men hate you, And when they exclude you, And revile you, and cast out your name as evil, For the Son of Man’s sake.  Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!  For indeed your reward is great in heaven, For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.
~Jesus / Luke 6:21-23 (NKJV)~

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
~Nehemiah 8:10~


About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
