Hay Doug!
Say, do you have the information about the next Archives Workshop. I've heard it's in CA. I've searched everything I can think to find out about it with no luck. Hope all is well for you.

My understanding of the principles of AA are that no one has any authority over anyone else,including the A.A.W.S. concerning our recovery as long as it does not harm the whole of Alcoholics Anonymous and the message to help the suffering alcoholic,this is our primary goal,to spread the message.
Correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you most kindly for your reply. I'm afraid I may not have expressed my question properly. The book clearly states "We will not regret the past" After 28 yrs. since the death of my daughter I have finally forgiven myself and moved on. My question is this "why should anybodys goal be to get to a point where they not regret the past, in other words, the harm they have done others.
one can forgive oneself but still regret having hurt others. It would strike me as being contrary to good Spiritual Thinking to have no regrets in this area.

Reply: Bob, I dont want to over simplify it, but, I believe the only "goal" is to "live sober". Anything else that comes as a result of being sober is a bonus. I sorry for the loss of your daughter.

It is stated "We shall have no regrets" When somebody dies as a result of my drinking is this possible? I am NOT asking "can I forgive myself"

Reply: Bob, that is actually not stated by it is implied. That has to do with sharing about the past. I'm sure if your drinking killed someone that it would be very hard to let go of. Ask your sponsor for help in coming up with a proper and meaningful restitution-you maybe able to find a space where you can deal with it - and we'll keep you in our prayers.

Was Bill D.( AA # 3) born in Carlisle, Ky. ( A city in Nicholas County) or Carlisle County,Ky which is on the other side of the State. I know the Big Book has it as Carlyle County(no such place in Ky, but probably a typo.)No big deal but occasionally comes up in discussions.

Thank you,

Dick Hedger

Reply: Actually, he was born in Lexington, KY. (1892) and died in September, 1954.

When was the first "EAST and WEST" AA directories published and are they still available? If not, when were they last published? Thanks, Bill W.

Reply: Hello Bill. The first East/West/Canadian directories were published per an advisory action in 1975. They are still available today. AAWS stuttered in the last 2 years so it looked like they stopped them for awhile, but they didnt.
