Sayings from the rooms: “Sobriety is like fresh produce”

My old friend Jacques told me this morning…

They say sobriety is like

fresh produce:

If you don’t do something with it


it’ll go bad on you.

“Dintchyou ever hear that, hon?” he said.

“Sobriety’s no canned good. It has a short shelf-life.”

“N’kay,” I said.

Sobriety is like fresh produce

Fresh produce from G's garden... now I gotta use it up.


  1. If I don’t keep going to meetings and working with others, my recovery gets stale. I am glad to be willing.

  2. I like the saying “if you’re not working on recovery you’re working on a relapse.”
