Often times it is real easy to get caught up in the pain and insanity of our addiction. Even in recovery we can lose sight of laughter and joy. Being able to laugh at ourselves and our disease can help us gain perspective and relieve tension.
Below is a listing of many of the "alcoholic" and "addict" jokes I have been told over the years. Also included are some true stories that have been shared with me. Please understand that some of what you may read here may be slightly off color.
None of the jokes or stories presented here are intended to offend, be discriminatory, or just plain filthy. They are provided simply to get you laughing at yourself and this disease we call addiction. Also, please
understand that for some people, reading these jokes may not bring laughter, but difficult memories from the past. These are intended only for addicts and alcoholics who need to laugh out loud at themselves
and their disease. Just click on the links below to get the jokes and stories.
