Re: An AA banner with only the letters T S

So...I've been told that the T S banner means "The Solution"

and there were a host of other clever guesses as well.

Re: An AA banner with only the letters T S

Thanks I should have thought of googling it myself. I think on Monday, I will call central service, to see if they know?

An AA banner with only the letters T S

Hi all Went to a new meeting last night, in the hall it had an AA banner (blue) with only the letter T S on it, does anyone know what that means? I had asked a few of the group members and the secretary, but none knew what it meant. I've been to a lot of meetings, even in different states and never ...

So our troubles, are basically of our own making pg 62

Hi All People are disturbed by their opinion of what happens, not by the happening itself...think about that... The world has no fixed reality. It is our belief system that determines how we think about the world. We interpret the world through the lens of our beliefs. So when we get frustrated or u...

Re: Unmanageable?

Hi All The way I perceive Step 1 is.... There are 2 parts to Step 1....First you have to put down the drink, as it called the shots, it told me what to do, I didn't tell it what I needed to do..... Secondly....My life had become unmanageable, The way I look at this is, my life was unmanageable befor...

Steps 2 and 3

Hi All STEPS 2 and 3 Step 2 Came to believe that a power greater than myself, could restore us to sanity. I had a hard time believing in God, even though this step, doesn't say God or religion, that's how I reacted to it. I was brought up in a devote catholic family, I had to go to church on Sunday'...

Re: Self Centeredness

Good topic, Dan. One of the simplest and easiest to understand books I've ever found on the subject of "selfishness" is a book called "The Art of Selfishness" by David Seabury. It was first published in 1937 and reprinted repeatedly until the '80's. I recently found some used copies in good conditi...

CONTENTMENT:
Learn that contentment consists, not in getting what you want, but enjoying what you have. If you are contented by only getting what you want, then your going to be discontented most of the time....The choice is yours.....

4. When someone tells me it's about willpower, I tell them, it's a disease and needs to be treated as an illness. Then I tell them, the next time you have diarrhea, try to stop shitting with willpower.

Some AA Slogans I like and why

Some A.A. Slogans I Like and Why As for my AA beginnings, I went to a detox first, spent about 2 weeks there. When I got out I went to my first AA meeting, I remember being scared and my hands were very clammy from being nervous. Someone mentioned just listen to the speaker and try to identify with ...
