I wonder if the title change for his story was run past Dr. Paul. Do you know? I was blessed to hear him speak at the Hayworth meeting of AA when I still lived in LA. I'm just curious. I've seen many a still suffering (dry) alcoholic, grit their teeth whenever anyone points out how MANY references to drug addiction there was in that 3rd edition (the one I got sober on as well). "Some of us have tried to hold on to our old ideas...." It still astonishes me the way the ego (edging god out) can stand in the way of serenity. In this old timer's opinion, most of the people who rush to get formats changed (etc) to deter even the mention of drugs in meetings just need so very badly to still be able to feel superior in some way... if only to say "at least I wasn't a drug addict." Thanks for the insightful blog!

"Acceptance" is mentioned once in the first 164. And, it is a reference to how readily we accept science, not any spiritual matter. Is acceptance the answer to all my problems? No. Spiritual principles will solve all my problems as promised on p42. Good, necessary essay, Mr SP!
