Take heed. Brute force cannot work. Rather, you must shatter the illusion to slay the man behind the glass!

Making Lists - Solving Problems

When you quit drinking you may be faced with some pretty serious life problems. It's not always easy to deal with cravings when you know that you have managed your life so poorly. There are a lot of problems associated with your alcohol abuse that need to be solved. Try to think about solving these problems as an opportunity to get your life back, rather than a burden. If you spend your time hopelessly mulling over your problems, as if they are impossible to solve, you will be more likely to seek escape through alcohol. And we all know that drinking will only make your problems worse.

"You can check out any time you want....."

I found this on another forum and it made me laugh so much I felt I had to share it. (Fuck AA - even had a little cringe using the word "share"). It was posted by one of the more militant (euphemism for bat-shit crazy) members. It's so typical of AA's "shift the blame" attitude and really belies so many of the arguments put up by the faithful.

Maybe it would be fun to add a few reasons why people left - any ideas.

PS. I highlighted the part that confirms that if you leave you will be shunned. There's no better source than the horse's mouth.

Codex Gigas - The Devils's Bible

"The Codex Gigas is the largest extant medieval manuscript in the world. It is also known as the Devil's Bible because of a large illustration of the devil on the inside and the legend surrounding its creation. It is thought to have been created in the early 13th century in the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice in Bohemia (modern Czech Republic).

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): Bill W. says the Church is AA's foundation

Excellencies and Friends: My thanks to Father Ray for his introduction. He has us off to an appropriate start. This hour with you is most meaningful to me and I trust it will be to you and to A.A. as a whole. Every thoughtful A.A. realizes that the divine grace which has always flowed through the Church is the ultimate foundation on which A.A. rests. Our spiritual origins are Christian. = The Sobriety Nazi = No relapse for you!

Hello, below are the facts taken from a 1968 appeal of a murder conviction in California. I cite this case not for any legal principle, but simply because the facts are interesting:

An AA Christmas story - Warning. Barf bag may be needed.

'Twas the night before Christmas, we were all in the club, Enjoying a meeting, instead of a pub. The ashtrays were clean, and the coffee was made, The Big Books were out and then we all prayed. When out in the lot, there arose such a clatter, We all jumped up to see what was the matter. The Chair with his Big Book, and I with my smokes, Headed outside to find these two blokes. They came inside and sat at a table; And said that they'd chair, as soon as they're able. To start with, they said, "It's more than not drinking; It's doing your best to have God fix your thinking."

Early in the evenin' just about supper time,
Ordered by the courthouse they're trying to stay dry.
Sponsors in the corner trying to pick you up.

Down in the basement, far from the sane,
Billy and the Steppers are chantin';
Bring a dollar; leave your brain.

Henrietta Seiberling comments on Bill Wilson's phone calls from the Mayflower Hotel in Akron, Ohio on Mothers Day May 12, 1935 - it was all made up, phony.....

Henrietta's Comments Much of the story relating to the phone calls at the Mayflower has been labeled as false by one of the people who would have known about what actually transpired there. Henrietta Seiberling, the person who arranged the meeting between Bill and Dr. Bob wrote to an early AA member telling him her side of the story. In that undated (ca. Early 1950's) letter, Henrietta wrote the following about what Bill had written in the RHS Memorial Grapevine issue.
