CTB is what i am questioning. Why would aa.org have CTB in front of aa.org? Never seen this happen.
CTB = Contributions? Maybe extra secure for entering credit card info.

Re: One member, one group, one vote

November 21st A CLASSIC PRAYER Lord, make me a channel for thy peace—that where there is hatred, I may bring love—that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness—that where there is discord, I may bring harmony—that where there is error, I may bring truth—that where there is doubt, ...

Re: One member, one group, one vote

I was successful in having the Lord's Prayer removed from the majority of all groups around central Oregon. I have very recently experienced the effect of such a vote on my own homegroup. It may take a long while for all the resentments to resolve. Oh I hope that is not the case with our group - I ...

Re: Here are the steps we took...

I''m confused, you don't actually do or take action after turning your thoughts to someone you can help? The text on page 84 DOES SAY: "When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutel...

Re: Here are the steps we took...

I can't argue with any of this! Good stuff! How many 5th steps would I have to do? My sponsor already heard my 5th step LOL she doesn't need to hear my entire life story over and over again. I still do mini 5th Steps with my sponsor. If it was drastic enough for me to write about it then it is drast...

Re: I Once Had 6 Years, Now I'm Losing Everything

November 18th I WAS SLIPPING FAST We A.A.'s are active folk, enjoying the satisfactions of dealing with the realities of life . . . so it isn't surprising that we often tend to slight serious meditation and prayer as something not really necessary. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS. p. 96 I had be...

Re: I Once Had 6 Years, Now I'm Losing Everything

Hi all, I'm Blake and I'm an alcoholic. ... But it stops here. It has to. It could be worse, sure, but left to my own devices I'll dig a deeper bottom. HI Blake. I was had about 3 years and then I drank for 17 more. Two acts of God ~ a fire (2000) and a flood (2008) ~ did not stop me from drinking....

Re: The Variety of Religious Experience

... I didn't find particularly helpful to my AA. Can you give me a brief of it? I mean I came to the book as an atheist looking for help with finding an HP I could live with. I did not get through it easily - and therefore not at all. Such is the nature of my alcoholic condition I suppose. Instead ...
