We had a lot of fun, boating, camping, having picnics and parties, some went to Europe on a group trip. Life was very good.
And this has what, exactly, to do with AA?

For me, it was chaning the people I hung out with in bars to people that lived beyond that. That they did all of these things wihout drinking and having the cooler of beer around. It was the fellowship and camaraderie. It was very important. Gigi. I literally didn't know people before that didn't drink. This group of friends were felllowship based. Of course, their spouses might not be, but they were lovely people, too.

It's about people leaving this site because of trolls that relate everything to the scripture of a mad Man called Bill Wilson. Quit parroting slogans already.
Why don't you read Dianetics and bother the sites that are upset about Scientology for a while and tell them how great L. Ron Hubbard is or something.
"Tradition 10 - Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy." Please follow orders from the Interchurch Center if you are an AA member and don't comment.

Clara, you chained your old bar buddies to AA members? Now that is intense!

I know you would think she belongs to the Girl Scouts. Simultaneously while she & her gang are having fun, lots of people are being abused & battered by the unqualified quacks in the program quacking the unqualified low life Wilson's anecdotal psychiatric suggestions. But that's okay, others may & should die so that they can have fun & tour Europe together.

You've been here for months, Clara. And, yet, this is the best example that you can give of why people get angry about their experiences in AA? Really? If you are here to learn, as you've stated numerous times, I'd say you've failed the course. Time to switch majors.
"Why did you lend the money? AA doesn't tell you to lend money to people. That was a personal decision and if you talk with anyone about it beforehand, I bet you won't lend the money."

I am looking at examples people give, Gigi, not that i agree with them. I have seen people post that they lent money to AA members and it didn't come back, which was a reason to hate AA. But if they had shown some common sense and asked a sponsor for an opinion, they might not be boohooing over getting taken. Tehre is nothing in the literature that says you have to lend money.

msafrany, it'll be interesting to see in patti views your attitude as one of a control freak. Any time someone shares a suggestion he gets drawn and quartered over the issue of control.

So "Twister Sister" is your idea of "art"?
My statement was about patti, msafrany. I'm sorry to have to be the one to break the news, but it was not about you. If this site carries no appeal for you other than a forum for you to declare your absolute freedom from AA, I'd surmise you're lettin' your unit lead you, dude, without a thought as to anyone else's participation. Maybe that's it. Maybe you're Orange's bitch, and your job is to spread the virus that life is nothing but beautiful outside of AA. What a load. Does it hurt your back carrying all that fiction around? Good thing I don't expect anything significant from you.
Come on, msafrany, come on back and a) tear down other posters because they are something stuck to the bottom of your shoe, and b) mouth off about your superior grasp of living. Yeah, the guy who has it all together has to keep checking in to make sure we all know he has it all together. Pfft.

What serenity you have judge.

So you like that crap too, huh live_duh?
Tue, 06/19/2012 - 17:19
My point, No Balls becket, was that you are condeming someone's choice in art. How becket-ish of you, to be so judgemental, judge.
And Trish is lost, as usual. Such a waste his brain is.

you remind so much of this asshole that was @ every meeting. He was always commenting on how intelligent he was. He actually used to tell anybody that would listen & we did get stuck hearing it over & over that his intelligence was off the charts because his therapist Sandy said so! Anyway, like you he always tried to belittle & demean other people for their thoughts & feelings & he had a bad bad case of AA holier than thou pious hypocrite. This guy was just so obnoxious & sad. My self & a few friends had started asking him when he brought up his genius off the charts IQ all the time, why didn't he just join Mensa & interact with his own kind. He would always tell us we knew nothing, our opinions, feelings & thoughts were worthless. Very similar to your rap. So why don't you go join Mensa & hang with intellects, I mean if you can get in. If not there must be a book club or something you can terrorize. And then there is always AA you can always return & interact with people there.

Well, you certainly have disclosed your level of sophistication.

Good thing your opinion means nothing to me. Your dishonesty, your exaggerations, your hatemongering, yes. But your actual core opinion: nah.

patti: is everyone who does not hate AA automatically completely pro-AA?

are you sure you're not just hearing things in your head? You know, like voices, and laughter, all in your head?

Oh, lfod, you are so cliche.

Beckett's lying again in writing & seems to somehow think these lies are not apparent or documented. Oh well, called Beckett a control freak the other day & it has seemed to have really struck a nerve. Cause here he/she is again bringing it up, but now he/she is lying & saying that I accuse every one of being a control freak all the time. Wow, pretending that control freak wasn't just all about her/him. Lying & writing that I always say it about everybody. You are right, he/she is bat shit crazy.

becket: "Any time someone shares a suggestion he gets drawn and quartered over the issue of control."
patti: " . . . now he/she is lying & saying that I accuse every one of being a control freak all the time."
You just keep perfecting that gift of exaggeration, that tendency to take a benign statement and a) making it all about you, and b) trying to distract the reader by lying yourself about another person's alleged "dishonesty".
"Daddy, daddy, look what becket did!!" I hate a fucking snitch, especially one that lies through her teeth for applause.

Tell the truth Beckett. You are lying when you write "any time someone shares a suggestion he gets drawn & quartered over the issue of control". No, never had any control issue problems with any one on the forum except for you & JJ. Beckett, you are always barking orders & demands, you do have a control issue, its common knowledge. Maybe not to you, maybe you aren't aware & lack self awareness. Or maybe you know & that's just your thing to come on here & bark orders in writing. A king/queen without a country.

See above response to your first offense. If you can understand it, consider it an explanation for your second offense ("Tell the truth . . . ")
If you can't or won't understand it, color me surprised. Oh, I mean, "please, dear, do try to understand and appreciate that I am shocked and saddened by this sad turn of events" *curtsy*
Please. Oh, and sincere thanks!
