43. LOL, I Love As Bill Sees It. Pages are falling out!

My old ragged copy is sitting here at my desk and has many thousands of miles on it. When I traveled, I would carry it into restaurants in the evenings for my daily "reset". I found I could open it to any page and get something good for the day.

At a glance, a couple of my favorites are pp10 (getting it out in the sunshine) and pp111 (damaging emotional conflicts persist below the level of consciousness), which were "lightbulb moments" for me. You might also want to review pp153 as to how it relates to posts below in this thread (glad I caught that one 'cause I was ready to fire away). Humility strikes again....

Also got a chuckle about what you said on carrying tokens. I carried at least two or three in my pants pocket while traveling and could always hear them jingle when running through airports, LOL. As you said, a great reminder against temptation.

Agree that Living Sober is perfect for beginners to accompany the Big Book. My next choice that I always had with me is the Twelve and Twelve book, from which I probably learned more than the BB itself.....

Thank goodness for the wealth of AA literature available! You probably get a laugh out of the fact that I paid $3.50 for hard-bound Big Books in 1990. Those days are long-gone.

KY...... ........
