i have no fears,bill. not today.
i didnt say you were trying to be harmful or insulting. thats on you

better for me to try and help people in meetings and here that are here today than those who havent been there in years. rather nuts to carry the message to someone that cant hear it.

it would simply be false pride and ego flaring if i started thumping the big book addictively to someone that hasnt been around in years.

One great thing about recovery is that the meeting and the steps are always here, even after someone moves on to another meeting.

That's one of the reasons I always take the most beaten up Big Book at a meeting...more hands have held it.

With no fear I have no need for retaliation today

In addition to the Hamilton B text which I find very helpful, take a look at both Joe McQ's books.: Carry This Message: a Guide for Big Book Sponsorship and the other book, The Steps We Took. I have found both of these helpful as well.
