Happy Birthday Florence R.

Florence Rankin Kalhoun was born on December 17, 1895. Her troubled life would be plagued by bouts of heavy drinking, which ultimately led her to the basements of Alcoholics Anonymous. Florence's story hit the big time when "A Feminine Victory" made the first edition of the Big Book, where she wrote,

I know that my victory is none of my human doing. I know that I must keep myself worthy of Divine help. And the glorious thing is this: I am free, I am happy, and perhaps I am going to have the blessed opportunity of "passing it on." I say in all reverence-Amen.

An old Christmas favorite!

Billy boy
Billy boy
Billy boy rock
Helyn Wynn shag like dogs on the block
Dancing and prancing around the square
In his Billy boy underwear

Watch out girls for that Billy boy rock
Billy boy sperm's got Billy boy germs
Don't be Bill's schlepper
Or your kid will be a stepper
From the Billy boy rock.

Russian Drug Tsar claims that brainwashed Methadone Addicts are causing a Ukrainian Revolution in December 2014

Cults, Drug Addicts Fomented Ukraine Revolution — Russian Drug Tsar

The Moscow Times, Dec. 12 2014 15:34, Last edited 21:16

Russia's top anti-drug cop claims to have identified the cause of the Ukrainian revolution — which, he said, was enacted by brainwashed methadone addicts.

Ukraine is one of more than 50 countries offering opioid replacement therapy to heroin addicts, who receive a milder opioid such as methadone in a palliative bid to ease withdrawals and drug cravings and decrease the danger to addicts.

A scientific test of the ridiculous powerless idea.

Walk into an aa religious cult meeting and set a bottle (or several of different types...) down on the table. Move them around, pour them in glasses, throw some in the garbage, put some in the coffee (make sure every one knows you did) leave some on the table.... etc. Oh, here's a good one, make some booze to take. The ultimate in power over alcohol, create it, then destroy it. This alone will prove people are not powerless over alcohol, but there is more. Sit down and watch everyone else proving they do indeed have power over alcohol.

What's Happening at The Grove?

I don't know, but most of the comments on The Fix have been deleted! LOL!

Residents of Capistrano (Capo) Beach, Dana Point, Orange County California have had it with the 20 Sober Homes in their neighborhood and 40 of them showed up at a City Council meeting in Nov. 2014 to voice their concerns.

Capo Beach Residents Ask City’s Help with Nuisance Sober Living Homes

by Dana Point Times on November 21, 2014 By Andrea Swayne

Capistrano Beach residents attended Tuesday’s City Council meeting en masse to express their frustration with what they call a proliferation of sober living homes in their neighborhood.

Stepper Cult Joke

What's the difference between the steppers and some of the OPF posters? The steppers have to pretend to be spiritual (not religious), at least at those macabre stepper cult indoctrination sessions/meetings (or else they are scared into beliving they will drink). Some OPF posters realise they can be as nasty as they want....its totally irrelevant as regarding the desire to drink

and one of the biggest problems is:

I refer to it as frame of reference. It seems to be only human nature for people to have a hard time grasping anything that's not within their own personal range of experience and knowledge. While some actually exploit this issue, for others it's nothing more than an honest mistake.

Looks like I was wrong.

Apologies to Monica Richardson. Looks like she's really getting things done.

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.

Muck & Fuddy

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.

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.

Is this another 'boring' poll?

Alcoholism/Addiction Is Not A Choice

Some recent discoveries about the role of genes in alcoholism:


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.
