speaker meetings


I stay away from speaker meetings because;


Chances are, I've heard their story 9 times already

Many speakers feel they must share everything from the age of 5

Very little time left for discussion

Most really don't practice what they preach

I don't care what got them there

Many are 90 minutes; I only have a 60 minute attention span

no one should be allowed to hold 30 people hostage for 30 minutes

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE:
A conflict between the requirement to talk like the PROGRAM (12 Step) works & ones knowledge that it isn’t doing anything.

John The Fireman Said;
All in all, this open-minded outlook has made my meeting attendance more
fruitful and meaningful. What a difference from the days when I would
leave a meeting more angry that when I arrived.


Micky Said:
Dear Jack,
You are slowly being BRAINWASHED. You have quite a lot of ANGER & AA is suppressing it. I attended an anger workshop for 4 years & I suggest you do the same. Anger is a healthy emotion. Rage (which you have locked in your body) is the DEMON. If one didn't have any anger, one wouldn't be able to leave ones apartment - house.

Satan (AA) is very cunning & "he" can give you a sense that you are doing fine. I was talking to a friend (today) 40 years "sober" & he is a terrified "little boy". All he has done is go to AA & he is still full of his demons. I know quite a few STEPPERS here in Sydney & I haven’t met one yet who is RECOVERED. One guy I knew blew his brains out after 20 years "sober".

One could say, that at least he didn’t pick up a drink. Can't you see how insane AA & 12 Step programs per se are, JOHNNY? Get real, John, tell me & the other BLOGGERS how you really feel

I, MICKY, AM THE HOLY ONE OF GOD.

Mickey truly is a bottom-feeding arsehole. Ignore him. Or pray for him. Personally, I'd give him a swift boot up the arse.
There's a lot there to be grateful for. If I was still drinking, God alone knows where I'd be right this second. Dead? On the street?
If I were to take a drink right now, it would cost me whatever booze costs these days as well as all or most of the above. So, today, and just for today, I choose one day at a time not to take a drink. AA gave me that choice back. AA showed me how to stop and stay stopped. Sober. Grateful. Bloody left eye - it's very blue, though. Just like the right one.

Micky Said:
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY:
Dear Recovery Road,
Did someone give you a swift boot in the eye? HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! I love you! Do you love me? How do you feel? HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

I, MICKY, AM THE LORD'S LIGHT & SALVATION FOR OTHER PEOPLE.


I'm JUST F. I. N. E.

Telling about what it's like to work on recovering from the affects of alcoholism through Al-Anon
Who I am

SYD THE RAVING LUNATIC

My name is Syd. I'm an adult child of an alcoholic married to an alcoholic who is learning the steps to recovery through Al-Anon. This is my journey in search of serenity.


Syd said...
Thanks for posting this. I've decided that Mickey is a nut case and not funny any longer. So I just delete what he says. He'll have to get his kicks by flogging himself wearing a hair shirt.

Micky Said:
Dear Syd,
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
—John 8:44

IRISH FRIEND OF BILL:
For my Sponsees. Ongoing posts to explain my personal interpretation, and preferred method, of recovering from Alcoholism, using the Basic Text of Alcoholics Anonymous as a template. Based on 20yrs sober life experience.

I just add bits when I remember something. NOBODY, including myself, speaks for AA as a whole. Take what you like and leave the rest. Live and Let Live. The Principles of Unity and Tolerance of other people's views and opinions are FAR more important than ANY personality in AA.
