King Baby?

It was a tossup between the biker-baby and Anna Kournikova today.
Both are cute, but the ladies might prefer the toddler(sorry guys).

We read the preface to the Big Book today.
It is amazing to me how all this started, and
how the founders were able to establish the B.B
the Steps and Traditions.

While I am in awe of the timeless nature of their
writings, I'm not a big fan of Bill Wilson. From
what I've read, he was a womanizer, a financial
disaster and really didn't practice what he preached.

All that doesn't matter to me; I am not a Wilson
follower, just someone who tries to implement the
principles and practices outlined in the books.

My view of recovery and AA is akin to my political
beliefs; neither conservative nor liberal. I tread the
middle ground, and consider myself a moderate in
and out of the rooms of recovery.

I spent all my childhood in orphanages (Catholic) where I was overloaded with fear & guilt. It took me many years to process my feelings associated with the traumatic elements of my past. “Salvation” for me only came with the progressive relief of my past history.

AA reinforced the damnation of fear & guilt. Initially one comes into AA & ones fear is increased (DRUNK A LOGS), but ones guilt is diminished – “It’s not your fault it’s a disease. There is nothing you can do about it. You will die unless you believe”.

Slowly one is BRAINWASHED & reaches a point of proper desperation, one is made to feel guilty & then hands ones power over to god – AA. Ones motivation then is not primarily by guilt, but by fear.

When one has been in AA (for a while) & has been “god controlled” (brainwashed), through guilt, one uses guilt to PASS THE MESSAGE (manipulate others).
If one stops going to meetings, one feels guilty. One often hears other Steppers saying, “I need more meetings”. “I need to do the Steps”. One has been driven into the DAMNATION of guilt – fear. The process never ends, one has sold ones soul to Satan – AA. The only way out is through the saving grace of our Lord & Saviour, JESUS CHRIST.

You can RUN, but you can't HIDE?
All will be revealed?

Thanks for the biker baby photo.

A lady.

I understand what you mean about Bill W. Not sure I would have liked him personally but I sure am grateful to him.

Dear Johnny,
I wonder if this might interest you? The truth will set you free, Jack! Or do you want to end up a Bill Wilson clone? I love you, John!
