Our Meeting in Print, for publication
those of you who don't know him, Mel B. is an A.A. old-timer,
a recovering alcoholic who got sober in Alcoholics Anonymous
in 1950 during the early days of the fellowship, when
he was a patient in the state hospital in his hometown,
Norfolk, Nebraska. He writes anonymously on subjects
related to alcoholism and was the principal author of
Pass It On, AA's authorized biography of co-founder
Bill Wilson. He has also contributed more than fifty
articles to The Grapevine, the international journal
of Alcoholics Anonymous. He has been an active member
of A.A. for more than fifty years. He is regarded as
one of the top historians writing about Alcoholics Anonymous;
in addition to this present volume, 101 Meeting
Starters: A Guide to Better Twelve Step Discussions,
February 2007, he has published six other widely
read books on the Alcoholics Anonymous program. The
following are all of Mel's books for viewing, after
which I encourage you to read all of Mel's many articles
that he submitted to our meeting in print - The AA Grapevine
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.
