i wonder about your bullying people.
do you have plans to continue to continue to deride “such” people, as part of this spiritual program your pushing us around with?
Its not the program you’re thumping around here sometimes, its people.
the “words” used in the big book are an insufficient defense against alcoholism. I firmly beleive in the “spirit” of those words.
I believie that ammends means something along the lines of permanent change. My alcoholic words and apologise are quite empty, in terms of people i have hurt.

Are you saying the Big Book is wrong ?
I’m quoting the Big Book verbatum, thats not opinion.
“we go in a forgiving spirit”.
What does that mean to you?
The BB is open to interpretation, especially in regards to the era it was written and where science and society were at the time. As society progresses, the BB will progressively take a back seat to approaches that are shown to be more viable for treating addiction. In fact, the BB has pretty much been relegated to this status already. Sorry, it’s true, and it’s not in the BB.:sorry
