Look up: scoff.
Q1. How do you handle money today? Are you sober with it? Have you grown into being recovered around money?
What about in the past? Did you play the big shot in the bar rooms or the bakeries? When you broke out did you throw caution to the wind and take money out of the account?
Q2. Were you a spendthrift or extravagant?
Did you ever have a job that threw money your way? How did you handle it when you had plenty of money and when you did not? How did money affect your addiction? Give a financial history.
Q3. How is it when you receive applause? Can you stay humble or does it go to your head? Perhaps you do the reverse: “If they only knew who I am they would not be giving me applause.”
Have you ever been an applause addict?
I had arrived.
Q4. How many times in your life have you thought that?
Drink was taking an important and exhilarating part
Q5. xxxxx is taking an exhilarating and important part in my life.
I want you to honestly fill in the blank.
Q6. Bill so badly wanted to be someone. Do you?
Everyone spent in thousands and chattered in millions. Scoffers could scoff and be damned. I made a host of fair-weather friends.
Q7. What is your definition of fair weather friends?
Do you have friends like this?
Q8. When people you think are wise, give suggestions, say about your money, food plan, retirement, to leave your husband, get married, etc, do you scoff?
Or are you willing to look at what they are saying and take it to Quiet Time?
