Humanspirit suggested that we have "What are the principles mentioned in step 12 and tradition 12" as a daily topic. I thought that this would bring a deafening silence from the pro- group (it usually does), but Clara, in her innocence, walked straight in declaring that the steps and the traditions are the principles...lol (another reason why I don't think Clara is Marietta. M would never have fallen for that one...lol)
The truth is that the steps have no principles in them. Plenty of cult practices, but no principles. The traditions are rather irrelevant as far as the steps are concerned. They weren't in existence when the steps were "passed down from on high"...lol.
I'm no expert on the 12&12 (weak stomach...lol). Does anyone know if it throws any more light on the principles in the 12 steps?
Just for a bit of fun - someone's first share when they are forced to go to AA but don't have a drinking problem. The punch line at the end is just so true....lol
