Comments:

Page 92 Big Book " If he sticks to the idea that he can control his drinking, tell him that possibly he can - if he is not too alcoholic. Question.. Can an alcoholic control his drinking if he is not too alcoholic?

Reply: Ron, I am not a doctor, but I can tell you that for this alcoholic, he could not control his drinking.
If someone has a problem, but still wants to "beat the system" with questions like this one, I would bet money that he is a real alcoholic.

Gentlemen, sober on St. croix since 11/6/96. Here is the one glaring contradiction in our literature; the long form of the second tradition is shorter than the "short form." Personally, I have fun with it when the newcomer needs to know our program is not perfect I point him to this "contradiction!"

Why are the 12 steps written in past tense?

Reply: Kym, Because they are telling you that "these are the steps that we took".
They were writing down the method that worked for the first 100 men and women and these steps had already worked for them.

David K

Comments:

I read in some AA literature, an article concerning a woman who wrote Bill W. about the druggies invasions into AA. His reply was roughly like this..."We can allow them to sit but not participate" (those are my words not Bills). My question is is it possible to obtain a copy of that article from anywhere? thanking you in advance.

Reply: David, we cant find that article because Bill didn't say that. He was all inclusive and if the person had a desire to stop drinking, then, well....what would your Maker do?

I've heard two versions of who wrote "To Wives": one was that Bill wrote it, one that Lois did. Which is correct?
