The tools of AA [steps & traditions was formulated over 70 yrs ago,when there was no TV or Internet. Don't some of the tools need polishing or updating in modern times?

Reply: No, I dont believe so. Why on earth would you want to even consider changing something that has proven that it works so well in both pre-internet and post internet times?
The only thing that has changed in this reguard would be the sharing of information...the actual disease of alcoholism hasn't changed.
What are your suggested improvements to the 12 steps and 12 traditions and what would the name of your new and improved program be?

Thanks guys for the congrats on my 37th AA birthday....and the coffee & cake. Don't mind me, but I've changed from "keep coming back" to saying "stay, it's easier!" At least it has been for me as I've learned from the shares of those who have gone back out to practice in this disease how hard it is to come back! Think I'll stick around until the wheels fall off! Thanks again. God Bless.

I'm looking for a poem that was on the wall of my first AA group in Toronto. This was the Wexford Group. The poem was called "12 Golden Steps". It began..."I'm climbing up 12 golden steps where other should have trod. I hear their voices calling back , climb up and you'll find God." I would so like to have a copy of this to read at the end of my talk.

Reply: I'm climbing up the 12 golden steps,
Where other souls have trod,
Upon the first step, sick and worn,
I whispered "god i', through",
Then in the second Still forlorn, my hope is born anew.
The third step opens up to me, A God I understand,
The fourth shines bright with honesty and shows me the promised land.
The fifth step finds me saying yes to all the wrongs I've done,
The sixth finds me in readiness for him, to right each One.
The seventh step and pride has changed to sincere humbleness,
The eighth has found me now estranged from hate and willful stress.
The ninth Step sees me clinging there so willing to atone,
The tenth just bids me to be fair-Leave the first drink alone.
The eleventh step shows me God's will, "A power, strange and new,"
And the twelfth step says never stop until you've Told other drunks, It's true.
So I'm climbing up 12 golden steps, Where Other souls have trod,
I hear their voices calling back, "Climb up and you'll find God"

I was wondering where did the phrase "Live & Let Live" originate - I can't seem to find it in the Big Book? Is it in the stories somewhere?

Reply: Look in the big book again...page 135 in the 4th edition.

Are you aware of any pictures of Dr. Bobs Tattoo's?

Reply: I have never seen an actual picture of Dr Bob's tattoos.
His daughter Sue describes them in her book Children of the Healer, but he always wears long sleeved shirts, as was a custom in his day, thus, no pictures. I'd love to see them too!

I found the prayer of St. Francis on your website by sheer accident. It brought me so much peace today. I am an alcoholic in recovery and this website gives a lot of information. Thanks for sharing with us all.

Sorry, skip the previous mail I sent. Down beneth the large version of the Serenity prayer in Dutch, for when you will add it to your site.
Best regards, Casper Bijl, The Netherlands.

God, schenk mij de KALMTE om te aanvaarden wat ik niet kan veranderen;
de MOED om te veranderen wat ik kan veranderen;
en de WIJSHEID om het verschil hiertussen te zien.
Om één dag tegelijkertijd te leven;
om van één moment tegelijkertijd te genieten;
Om moeilijke tijden te accepteren als het pad naar de vrede;
Om deze zondige wereld, net als Hij deed, te aanvaarden zoals het is, niet zoals ik wil dat deze zou zijn;
Om er op te vertrouwen dat Hij alle dingen zal rechtzetten als ik me aan Zijn wil overgeef;
Om in dit leven gelukkig genoeg te zijn, en om met Hem overgelukkig te zijn:
Voor altijd in het volgende leven. Amen.
