Aloha Trudger...I don't know the original history of the 13th step but I do know what thepresent reference means and have made amends for the practice of it at times in thepast. I once use to understand it as trying to chase a high that was higher than myhigher power. I also came to understand it as a partial relapse...not drinking the wholedrink, just going to the party. There of course is no such thing in this program. I don'tget to have only one without the entire consequences...insanity or death.In support
It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you got.BB
When all else fails - RTFM
Thanks Dave for the history that I was unaware of ... the 13th step not being a sexual predator thing.
It has always been my understanding that there really isn't any 13th step in AA. ( meaning the sexual interpretation of it ).
