The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

In Michigan, we tend to do things different.

We, in Michigan, have small table discussion meetings

We, Michiganders, don’t usually have cakes at sobriety anniversaries

Apparently, we in Michigan, don’t go to International Conferences, more on this later.

And, we have Barefoot meetings, Russ’ favorite

- “Barefoot meeting” is a term used to describe a meeting where discussion is not focused on a particular topic; each member who shares chooses what he or she wishes to discuss.

Let’s keep the discussion on the solution.  

Greg, you suggested this format, you get to lead the segment.  Greg, where do you want to start?

We have calls



Possible things to discuss:

  • step you are currently working - step 6 - were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

  • step your sponsee is working on - step 2, been hurt by religion, so working on spirituality

  • your current spiritual condition - great period, did a lot of work on happiness and what that is and what that is not.  Pleasure, satisfies in the moment, happiness not so satisfying in the moment but the positive feeling lasts.

  • what tradition is currently in play at your home group - thinking about looking at traditions

  • current difficulties/challenges and possible recovery solutions. my family

  • current recovery literature you are reading - breathing under water. Richard Rohn a spiritual advisor and not alcoholic reflects on the 12 steps

  • recovery movies -

  • recovery music

  • recovery art

  • relationships and steps/prayers/slogans that help

  • meetings

What would you say to the new guy?
