Bill W. and the internet

I saw the movie "Bill W" last night. It was excellent. And then this morning I saw this quote from him in 1960 in the Grapevine. It is amazing how this man was so focused on the future of AA.   "Nothing matters more to AA's future welfare than the manner in which we use the colossus of modern communication. Used unselfishly and well, it can produce results surpassing our present imagination." -- Bill W., The Grapevine, November, 1960See More

Working Manuscript of the the Big Book

I was on 12Steprecovery.com and saw that there was a book available that I had been hearing about for a while. The title is "The Book That Started it All: A working manuscript of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.It is incredible! It has the original typed text of the Big Book before it was ever published with handwritten notes in the margins. Originally Bill W. sent this manuscript out to the groups for feed back. Some of the annotations were really great and changes were made to the book.…See More

Faith Vs. Fear

Posted on April 26, 2012 at 4:24pm 0 Comments

My recovery has evolved to the point where I am better able to trust my higher power to provide everything I need. I am older and wiser now, however, it is the 12 steps that have transformed me. I had a sponsor once who told me that each day God gives me 24 hours worth of everything I need; shelter, food, courage, strength, serenity, love...everything. When I can stay in today, I find that she was exactly right.I have…

Mr. Akoto.

Hay Janet I finally found the site. How are you doing? Went to see "Dark Shadows today. You must go It's very funny. Will hit a meeting tomorrow. I've finally settled in to 4 a week. It took me a long time but I finally found a home group. I make coffee once a week and chair (Secretary) a meeting once a week. Life is good. You and I are miracles! Much love Kim
