"Outsiders are sometimes shocked when we burst into merriment over a
seemingly tragic experience out of the past. But why shouldn't
we laugh? We have recovered, and have been given the power to help
others."

So true. They don't really understand how we can laugh about our past antics. I've experienced that look of horror from non-alcoholics when I tell what I think is a funny story.
