We believe, and so suggested a few years ago, that the action of alcohol on these chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy; Do you believe this statement? What is your experience?
These allergic types can never safely use alcohol in any form at all; Do you believe this statement? What is your experience?
Welcome to the Thursday 8 p.m. (EST) All Addictions Big Book Step Study Workshop.
My name is Stephanie and I will be your facilitator/sponsor.
I will be going through the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous line by line, paragraph by paragraph. I will give you my take on what is being said and also share my own experience, strength and hope with the step being studied.
We are welcoming to all persons in any twelve step recovery fellowship. There is no sobriety or abstinence requirement to belong to the group, and no attendance requirement either. My hope is that you will find this workshop so helpful to your recovery, that you will not want to miss it. There will be weekly written assignments that are not mandatory, but they will be helpful for a fuller experience of the step being studied. You’ll get out of the workshop what you put into it. I will be asking for you to read your assignments if you so chose to. We all learn so much for each other’s sharing.
I will be taped each week, so if you miss the workshop you can listen to it at your convenience, though it is not a substitute for the actual workshop. You will not be taped, so if you don’t come to actual workshop, you’ll miss your group members sharing.
I will be posting a short note about any further thoughts our workshop each Friday on our Website. You’ll have a place to write a comment, question or a sharing about what you learned or got out of the workshop the night before. This will be open to everyone to write and respond to, along with myself. If you want to write a note, comment or question to me personally, send it to ks.bkl [at] verizon.net
I look forward to this recovery journey through the steps as they are laid out in the Big Book with all of you. I was a changed person when I completed the steps as they are laid out in the Big Book, and I pray that you too can experience the psychic change I experienced.
