Why is tolerance important in recovery? (respect for the other)

Page 84:    open 

  ...fear. When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to someone we can help. Love and tolerance of others is our code. And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone - even alcohol. 

important for me to be tolerant enough to reach out to the new guy with lots of problems to get out of head.

When have you been intolerant? 

(love of opinion,self righteous especially around religion, with AA as only way to recovery)

What gets in the way of being tolerant?

How is tolerance important to the individual?

Page 19:    open 

 Nothing would please us so much as to write a book which would contain no basis for contention or argument. We shall do our utmost to achieve that ideal. Most of us sense that real tolerance of other people's shortcomings and viewpoints and a respect for their opinions are attitudes which make us more useful to others. Our very lives, as ex-problem drinkers, depend upon our constant thought of others and how we may help meet their needs.

How is it important to the group?

the group needs it to grow and be there for the newcomer

Pray for tolerance, neighbor

  We have commenced to see their terrible destructiveness. We have begun to learn tolerance, patience and good will toward all men, even our enemies, for we look on them as sick people. We have listed the people we have hurt by our conduct, and are willing to straighten out the past if we can. In this book you read…

How has your tolerance grown?

Page 125:    open 

  We do talk about each other a great deal, but we almost invariably temper such talk by a spirit of love and tolerance. Another principle we observe carefully is that we do not relate intimate experiences of another person unless we are sure he would approve. We find it better, when possible, to stick to our own stories. 

What has been the benefits?

When does tolerance become a bad thing?

How does tolerance differ from codependence?
