"Once they get over their individual problem..." [about a glbtiq meeting].  ~ heard at a regional meeting ~

"_____________ is d a n g e r o u s."

"You won't recover if you don't believe in [a god]."

"They're always talking about ____________ . That's not recovery."

"___________ will never make it."

Things professional helpers have said:

"You've been over-emo at meetings, yelling about people breaking anonymity because you think they tell us-- your drug court overseers-- what you are talking about at meetings."  [drug court staff do not attend any meetings that the drug court participants attend]   ~ paraphrased ~

"Don't use __________ as a sponsor."  ~ verbatim ~

"If you sleep with me, then _______ will stop."  [to a patient]
