Anyone who comes on here has usually seen the light (Even Marietta - she's just in denial...lol). Once you've seen the truth, there is no going back. I don't think I could sit through another AA meeting without giving in to the desire to make farting noises regularly...lol. I give in so easily to the child within...lol.
What I'm proposing here is a list of questions that a true newcomer to AA could reasonably ask and, hopefully, get some replies. With the ever growing popularity of this site there is a good chance that a genuine person with an alcohol problem may come across it by chance. The OP is a mine of information but, to someone suffering and new to AA, it is probably too much to take in quickly. Remember the 90 in 90 - that's the kind of time frame AA have set themselves to brainwash newcomers - that's what has to be beaten.
It took me 3 months (90 days?...lol) or so to get through the Orange Papers, but I already knew that AA was wrong. What we need is a place for a newcomer to get a brief idea of what to expect from AA and a few questions to ask. A sort of Orange Papers Lite if you like...lol.
Just an idea for a couple of question. And remember, 50% of the battle is to get the newcomer to ask questions...lol
1 Why is it called the Big Book?
2. Why, in step 12 does it talk about principles when there aren't any principles?
