Re: Character defect - Money management

JacobB So this is what the BB says about having defects removed. Pg.76 top of page. it talks about willingness being indispensable. Then it asks: are we now ready to let God remove from us these things we find objectionable? We ask God. The book then suggests a prayer. Then before we are half way do...

Re: An AA banner with only the letters T S

I did a little google search and the only thing close I came up with, was Trinity Sunday banners. They also have similar symbology as the AA circle with the triangle inside. Of course it maybe something local or custom that meant something to that group. Maybe the group was started in a church affil...

Re: One day at a time

One day at a time: For the beginner can be a helpful saying to say today I won't drink. "Okay I can do a day". One day at a time: For the person with years or no thought of drinking can use it in a spiritual sense and reminder of self will. Turning the will over to HP this day. Then practice during ...

I would first start with prayer. Asking your HP the best way forward for
you to handle this in your group or groups.

Re: Fantasizing

jmd63304 I am encouraged to see your honesty. More about alcoholism, talks of such a condition. I am reminded that we must concede to our innermost selves that we are alcoholic. We don't like to think we are bodily and mentally different from our fellows. I understand you have days of sobriety behin...

Re: Questions heard at meetings.

Here is what I love about AA and the Big Book. {It is suggestive. Also it tries not to be prejudicial of any outside help. It is a simple suggestive program.} So anyone who says the BB is the only way should probably show where the BB says that. I understand that the only requirement is the desire t...

Re: Questions heard at meetings.

Isolating. If someone inventories their isolation as defective then it is. Same with being hurt by others. This come through a personal inventory and I would never pretend to assume I relate to ( ALL ) others situations and experiences. I can see isolation as healthy or unhealthy. It all depends on ...

Re: Are we powerless over alcohol?

All this cure for craving talk reminded of a pill called antabuse.

I was once ordered to take this stuff and decided that I would drink to see what it would do and see if I could
find a way to drink just enough to where it would not cause effects to extreme.

"Oh" the insanity.
