A Different Swinging Door


When a drunk shows up among us and says that he doesn't like the A.A. principles, people, or service management, when he declares that he can do better elsewhere -- we are not worried. We simply say, "Maybe your case really is different. Why don't you try something else?"
 
If an A.A. member says he doesn't like his own group, we are not disturbed. We simply say, "Why don't you try another one? Or start one of your own."
 
To those who wish to secede from A.A. altogether, we extent a cheerful invitation to do just that. If they can do better by other means, we are glad. If after a trial they cannot do better, we know they face a choice: They can go mad or die or they return to A.A. The decision is wholly theirs. (As a matter of fact, most of them do come back.)

Anger - Personal & Group Enemy
As Bill Sees It - (p. 98)


"As the book `Alcoholics Anonymous' puts it, `Resentment is the Number One offender'. It is a primary cause of relapses into drinking. How well we of A.A. know that for us `to drink is eventually to go mad or die".

"Much the same penalty overhangs every A.A. group". Given enough anger, both unity and purpose are lost. Given still more `righteous' indignation, the group can disintegrate; it can actually die. This is why we avoid controversy. This is why we prescribe no punishments for any misbehavior, no matter how grievous. Indeed, no alcoholic can be deprived of his membership for any reason whatever.

"Punishment never heals. Only love can heal."

What is District?

District 10 is simply a part of the service structure for A.A. groups in the several counties that make up the Dothan, AL area. This structure allows for individual groups to bring their conscience (or direction) to the city-wide, state-wide and national level. The information flow in this structure is bi-directional.

 

Group questions or opinions are carried to the District level by Group Service Representatives (GSR) from each group. The questions or opinions of the District are carried to the Area Assembly at the state level by the District Committee Members (DCM).

 

The Area questions and opinions are carried to the General Service Conference (includes GSO) by the Area Delegate. Information, proposals, and findings are then disseminated back to the Group members in reverse order. This structure neither makes rules nor enforces controls on any A.A. group. Each A.A. group remains autonomous, except in matters that could affect other groups or A.A. as an entity.

Troublemakers Can Be Teachers


Few of us are any longer afraid of what any newcomer can do to our A.A. reputation or effectiveness. Those who slip, those with mental twists, those who rebel at the program, those who trade on the A.A. reputation - all such persons seldom harm an A.A. group for long.
 
Some of these have become our most respected and best loved. Some have remained to try our patience, sober nevertheless. Others have drifted away. We have begun to regard the troublesome ones not as menaces, but rather as our teachers. They oblige us to cultivate patience, tolerance, and humility. We finally see that they are only people sicker than the rest of us, that we who condemn them are the Pharisees whose false righteousness does our group the deeper spiritual damage.
