The key principles of Alcoholics Anonymous are widely familiar as seven popular slogans: First things first. Live and let live. Easy does it. Let go and let God. One day at a time. Pass it on. Keep it simple. This inspiring book explores the deep wisdom behind these simple sayings and shows how the underlying principles relate not only to recovery but also to living happily and well in a confusing world. Mel B. and Bill P. offer a unique look at the historical, spiritual, and Twelve Step roots of the main principles of recovery. Full of practical help and support, this book gives readers a clear and useful sense of how these principles apply to the main goals of recovery: staying clean and sober, building emotional stability and maturity for successful living in sobriety, and finding the will and the way to get along with others and fulfill our full human potential

"A friendly, first-ever guide to making the most of Twelve Step meetings. For millions of people around the world, attending Twelve Step meetings is essential to their recovery from addiction. Twelve Step meetings are confidential forums for people to share the experience, strength, and hope that sustain sobriety. Sometimes, however, meetings get sidetracked by irrelevant topics, dominant speakers, or other distractions, leaving attendees feeling frustrated and unfulfilled. Here, for the first time, is a collection of dynamic Twelve Step "meeting starters" designed to generate spirited, meaningful, and gratifying group discussions. Each meeting starter includes a brief script for the moderator to use in introducing the selected topic. Mel B., who has been in recovery for more than fifty years, drew from his participation in more than 10,000 Twelve Step meetings to develop 101 thought-provoking topics, including: "Dealing with Rejection," "Attracting Trouble," "Happy Coincidences," and "Live and Let Live."--Global Books in Print

Living The Twelve Traditions In Today's World : Principles Over Personality by Mel B.( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A gripping exploration of the history of the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and their relevance and applicability today. Today, almost everywhere you turn, celebrity misadventures with alcohol and drug use, overdoses, and relapses are splashed across the headlines. Popular starlets are "doing time" in rehab for theft and misconduct. Yesterday's herus congregate before the camera for a Twelve-Step meeting or a therapy session. Although this state of media attention has made the public increasingly aware of the dangers of drinking and drugging, what dus this mean for Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and similar 12-Step programs that were founded on such Traditions as anonymity and not drawing the AA name into public controversy' In Living AA's 12 Traditions in Today's World, seasoned writer and AA historian Mel B. uses transcripts of speeches by Bill W. and original documents chronicling the development of the 12 Traditions to examine their importance to the survival, integrity, and success of AA and other 12-Step organizations. Popular speaker and archivist Mike F. then looks at the relevance of each of the Traditions in the twenty-first century--their importance for recovering people's ongoing sobriety and for the future of the Fellowship. Together, Mel B. and Mike F. explore what aspects of the Traditions hold strong and what have been overlooked or have even evolved since they were formally adopted at the First International AA Convention in 1950. In the end, they find strength and hope in a radical organizational model and culture born from a lasting concept: principles over personalities. Mel B. is a long-time AA member and the author of many classic recovery titles, including My Search for Bill W., Walk in Dry Places, New Wine: The Spiritual Roots of the Twelve Step Miracle, and Ebby: The Man Who Sponsored Bill W. Mike Fitzpatrick is one of the leading archivists and historians specializing in the development of the Twelve Step movement. He has worked with authors and movie producers, providing material for their work, and is the co-author of 1,000 Years of Sobriety
