    I’m surprised that Quiet Time is not considered one of the tools. Does anyone have any insight into why that might be?

    Re: trouble with hearing the recorded sound files
    I have some experience with and with having a similar problem with audio files playing back at too fast a speed ( Chipmuck like speed)..- until I found this above information link and started recording/ at 44khz audio sample rate, & bit rate 96 and sometimes 128.

    According to WordPress the audio player expects the files to be encoded at 44.1kHz

    I’m wondering if this is what the difficulty is?
    I’m just trying to help out.

  3. In regards to Diane (SF, CA)’s question on why “quiet time” is not a tool; I only know of one fellowship which does list it as it’s first tool along with prayer as the second tool:


    1. Prayer: asking a higher Power daily for the means and strength to stay sober…even though we may not yet truly believe in such a Power.

    2. Quiet Time: in which we center our minds and clearly focus our energy on receiving the gift of sobriety.

    3. Reaching Out: telephone contact with another recovering person before and/or after meals.

    4. Meetings: both A.B.A. and other Twelve Step meetings are critically important in maintaining sobriety. Many of us in early recovery attend ninety meetings in ninety days.

    5. Reading: the textbook of our Fellowship and the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous are especially useful.

    6. Sponsor: we ask someone in the Fellowship with more sobriety than we have to sponsor us. This person is essential to guide us through the Twelve Steps and is often available to assist us in maintaining sobriety.

    7. Journaling: periodically recording in written form what we are feeling and learning on our journey through recovery.

    8. Service work: our most powerful tool. Even when all else fails, working with another anorexic or bulimic will save the day and allow a Higher Power to keep us sober!
