Enough Already With the Dammm Doorknobs

Every time I read remarks about the 'doorknobs,' I can almost imagine 'Steppers' snickering up their sleeves.
Point 1: If you read through the books- including the BB chapter on agnostics- you can see the approach is based on causing people to believe they have complete freedom of choice, while at the same time making it clear that if you 'KCB' you will eventually begin to see it THEIR way.

some notes about local A.A.

If you've been in or around AA, you're probably all too familiar with the 'blame the victim' approach- whatever happens to an individual, misguided and/or judgmental idiots find some way to make it the victim's fault: what the person 'should have' or 'shouldn't have' done, 'what was her part,' etc.

SOBRIETY/SECRET TECHNIQUE99.999%

Every time I see booze/same thought.Fat head/small rectum,but gee if I return to drinking can I fit my fat head further up my ass than the last time.I joke with the Girls/guys in 7/11, when I go there.In Thai ,saying how still when I see the alcohol sold there is same thought.head is kinda large/rectum kinda small but somehow everyone drinks and their heads fit snugly inside their butts. just once in these last let's see-I'm in thailand and when I got ehre had 2 years sober/Been ehre 9 years so 2+9=29 here in Tland tis how AA counts sobriety.

How to NOT read other peoples blogs or polls

Apparently some people on the OPF do not appear NOT to be able to read other peoples blogs or polls. Jim Battle, Jerry and NoAAUK immediately spring to mind as blogs or polls that some people DONT want to read, but there have been many more cases on the OPF previously. I personally just do NOT click on the 'read more' link if I dont wish to read what someone else has written, but perhaps some people have difficulty with this procedure.

Alcoholism/Addiction Is Not A Choice

Some recent discoveries about the role of genes in alcoholism:

http://www.utexas.edu/news/2014/12/02/alcohol-gene-adron-harris-waggoner/

If alcoholics have a different genetic make-up to non-alcoholics, then alcoholism can't be described as a choice.

We are powerless over our genes.

re: the 48 Hours documentary

I'm just curious- how many people, other than me, nearly choked when they said- and repeated a couple of times- that members are free to disclose as much OR AS LITTLE about themselves 'as they wish'?

This sure as * wasn't MY experience!!!

AA's holiest of holies. Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you made your 'gratitude list' for the most holy of AA holy days. Here are a few suggestions for you to thank "God" for. Select Agents Ebola Nuclear Waste Malaria Aids Cystic Fibrosis Heart Disease Stokes Weapons of Mass Destructions War Tarantula Hawk Bites Trigeminal Neuralgia Brainerd Diarrhea Sickle Cell Anemia Ondine’s Curse And my favorite, have you thanked your AA (Read: xtian) "God" for AA and the thousands of other religions, ever holding back the progress of humanity, stifling science that finds solutions to these and other problems.

Holidays: another "casualty" of A.A.

One of the first oddities I noticed when I first became eyeball-deep in Steppers was their tendency to refer to A.A. and N.A. as their 'real' family or their 'true' family. Some of the individuals regularly associated with their blood-relatives, which in my POV meant they were hypocrites. While my family retained our sense of Family, holidays as we knew them to be disappeared.
