Singleness of Purpose Amend

Posted 05-04-2009 at 07:14 AM by Rob B

I have had a copy of this for a while, I think some of you may enjoy it, others may not.

I recently completed the Eighth Step and have decided that my first
amends should be to Alcoholics Anonymous itself, which I believe I have
harmed to some extent by violating its singleness of purpose.

The Big Book: Do we really need it?

Posted 12-21-2007 at 08:48 AM by Rob B
Updated 12-21-2007 at 09:14 AM by Rob B

Very often, a newcomer is told, “Don’t waste your time with the Big Book. It was written back in the 1930’s and has never been brought up to date. We know so much more now.” Of course, that type of statement is made by a person or persons who have never bothered to put the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous to the test as did the Authors of the Big Book nor those of us who have accepted that challenge.

Hopeless alcoholics had, for the second time in the history of mankind, been given an opportunity to escape death or permanent insanity from the fatal malady -- alcoholism.

Very early on, Bill W. became aware...

The Information Bulletin F-2 is one of the A.A. publications that addresses this problem.
