When I first came in, I could hardly understand you people and the type of language you used.

If you hang around long enough, you’ll figure out most of the recovery language, the recovery slang, the recovery lingo, but why wait? We will talk about our favorite AA terms and phrases, coupled with their occasionally comic double meanings.
