img_4367Hi Everyone!

Thank you for your participation and sharing during our meeting this week.

The telephone conference numbers for our group are:

Telephone conference number: (712) 775-7031 Access Code: 397-681-282

Playback recording number is: (712) 775-7029 Access Code: 397-681-282#


As a reminder, our group takes place on Sunday mornings at 5:30 AM EST.

Please join us as we “trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.” (AA Big Book 164:3)

This week, our meeting was unable to be recorded.

We read and discussed More About Alcoholism in the AA Big Book 38:1.

Here are a few points that we discussed during the meeting:

We have to work the program every day. Because we have “a strange mental twist” that tells me that we really don’t have this disease.

We discussed “what can I do to help someone to become abstinent?” As a group, we discussed that “what you put into the program you get out” and that no one can make another person get abstinent, just as no one makes us pick up.


For next week, we agreed to continuing reading from More About Alcoholism in the AA Big Book and complete the chapter before moving onto the story The Keys Of The Kingdom.

 I would also like us to read from step 2 in the OA 12 & 12.

I am so grateful to be sharing this journey with all of you!

Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.

“Together we can do what we can never do alone.”


In love and service,




  1. Thank you, Shira!  I will be done with going through Steps 1-12 with my current OA sponsor this weekend.  I am going to make this Sunday morning meeting a committed meeting.  I appreciate all of what you do to carry the message, and I look forward to trudging the road with you and the others in the group. With much gratitude,Judy
