NEW OPEN BUDDY GROUP
Stephanie is encouraging anyone who would like to start another Open Buddy Group. It can be at any time or day of the week. You are not in charge of it and you do not facilitate it.
Stephanie is asking for a buddy for M, who already has done the big book workshop. M has no access to the internet. Somebody is sending her the questions. Most of the time she cannot come live because she has health issues and has to go to the doctor. If you are able to help please text Stephanie 617 774 7918 and she will pass on your contact number.
Christmas Day: Next week we will vote on whether or not we want a workshop on Dec 25th.
Group business meeting on January 1st
Bring your suggestions such as how to improve the workshop.
Debbie is responsible for the upkeep of the website, distributing the questions, etc. And we pay for the mailbox. Please remember at this time if you are able to donate.

Stephanie’s suggestion is to make recovery intimacy a priority.
Q1.What does recovery intimacy mean to you? Are you afraid of it and how do you work it?
What sacrifice for recovery intimacy is God asking of you which are not doing?
Q2 Describe in your own words the phenomena of craving.
[It is especially challenging to describe the phenomena to someone who does not have it]
Q2. Write about a particularly memorial occasion such as an appointment, a party, interview, date etc. that you missed due to the phenomena of craving which caused you to pick up.
Q3. a) Are you making a supreme sacrifice (putting other things ahead of your program) rather than to continue to fight for your sobriety, intimacy with the group, your sponsor and sponsees?
b) Have you lost the balance between God, recovery and life? How are you doing?
Q4. Write your own definition of the moderate drinker.
Are you a moderate drinker? Do you remember when you were one?
Reflect on those you know in your step one fellowship , your sponsee, someone in your family.
[It is not for us to say whether someone is a moderate drinker which would be playing God].
