Quote of the Week

"A Big Book that's falling apart is usually 
carried by a person who isn't."

I have heard so many times in meetings that the answers to my alcoholism and to the problems in my life are to be found in the Big Book. The question I have to ask myself is how often do I go there to find them? And the answer these days is not often enough. 
 
When I was new I spent a lot of time reading the Big Book. My sponsor and I went through it page by page, and I'd attend book study meetings where I would break it down even more. And as my book began falling apart, I realized that my life no longer was. 
 
Recently I've made a commitment to get back to basics and read the Big Book again. There are areas of my life that aren't where I want them, and I know that I'll find the answers I need in the Big Book. I've got the latest edition, a yellow highlighter, and I'm going to read and study it until it begins to fall apart. By then I know my life will be in order once again.

I'll buy that....Sometimes I feel like it's the best kept secret in AA...It's like the 1000 pound book...Sitting next to the 800 pound phone.

So true guys!  My head tells me, "you've read that a hundred times, why again".   furious  The thing I've found is each time I read it, I find something new or refresh and idea that I'd forgotten about.  That's why..................  wink  It's the same thing with meetings.  I need to be constantly reminded of the problem and the solution.  If not, I start to forget.............  It's that daily reprieve thing a majiggy....................

I've been in some meetings where people sharing showed everyone their very used BB and held it up and remarked that it was falling apart and it was because they used it so much.

 A literature review is a written summary of important works and other materials on a certain subject. Scholarly journal articles, books, government reports, Web sites, and other sources may be used in the review. In my spare time, I was stumped as to how to write. I learned about buy cheap paper online after reading this article. Free formatting, revisions, outlines, and title pages are among the most typical free services. Free bibliographies and reference pages will be available on meathharpacademy.com . Free add-ons have the advantage of making pricing more clearly understood. Each source is described, summarised, and evaluated in the literature review.
