Tri-County Central Office News"In order to keep it, you must give it away,"A Monthly Newsletter of the Tri-County Central Office, Inc.8019 North Himes Avenue Ste. 104 , Tampa, Florida 33614-2763Phone: 813- 933-9123 E-Mail: Web Site: www.aatampa-area.orgA GOOD FIGHT TO LOSEIn July, 1947, I borrowed a dollar to buy several slugs to quite mynerves to give me the voice to make a long distance call collect toask for help from Alcoholics Anonymous. And I quote Lefty H.; itwas the kids last fight. It wasn’t much of an appeal, that call fromChicago to a little town in the short grass country of Oklahoma. Imerely said, “Sam, I need help.” Sam knew what I meant, and helpwas on it’s way. I quote the first thing he told me. “Don’t worryabout how or why AA works. Just be happy in your new way of life,and pass it on to some poor devil who wants it and needs itdesperately, and doesn’t know where to find it.” No great thinkeram I. My philosophy of life today is borrowed, a series of quotesfrom others. Sure, back in the growing days I tried to change theTwelve Steps, to make my own rules. But these efforts were, I hope,merely the stirring of a dormant spirit that had suddenly found that itis good to be alive. I accept the Twelve Steps, I believe in the bigBook.” I have returned from my perch in the heavens to theteachings of basic AA, the keeping it simple type. At my firstmeeting a little guy named John said, “Just get it through your headthat you can’t take that first drink.” I quote John, because from him Ilearned. These then, are not my thoughts as of tonight, but they arethoughts of others, gleamed from many a meeting, many a sessionover the coffee cup. But these thoughts I believe. There is a vastamount of fun about it all. I laugh even today at the man whose wifegave him a $20 for the initiation fee in AA, about the man whoburied a case of whiskey in his dirt-floor garage only to have hiswife surprise him by putting in a concrete floor, of the man whoenjoyed drinking so much he threw away his false choppers so hewould never eat again. I envy the new member, and I quote from aman named Al; the new member is the most important member. Theold timers have to lean on and depend on the new members, withtheir enthusiasm and spirit. It is the new members “eager-beaver”attitude that makes the program work. An alcoholic isn’t a bad guy.He’s simply a man or woman whose drinking has become a problemto his family and friends. Oh you can talk all you want to aboutcompulsions and neuroses and complexes, but let’s give the newman the facts in simplified form. It’s hard for a new man tounderstand a discussion on character defects...which comes first, thechicken or the egg. You’ll get him so confused he won’t knowwhether this is AA or a poultryFrom the Central OfficeSERVICE DESKA total of 597 phone callswere made to theCentral Office inJune285 for info on AA,2 for info on Al-Anon,3 messages for otherinquiries,5 requesting a Twelfth Step call,302 after Office Hours calls.There were 205 walk-ins visits as What we can do is givehim hope, and show him theway. The new man doesn’tknow whether the TwelveSteps is a new dance or a brandof whiskey. But we can breakthem down for him. First, ofcourse is the admission: I aman alcoholic. I not only admit,but accept the fact that I am analcoholic. I’m simply hookedGo to page 3August 2011NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS IN TAMPA AREAIt has come to my attention that a rumor has startedcirculating around that I am resigning from the CentralOffice. Let me clear the air. I AM NOT RESIGNING! Irepeat…..I AM NOT RESIGNING! As usual, people onlyhear sometimes what they want to hear. A few monthsago, I resigned from doing District 2 General Servicework. I gave up my position as ACM for Sub-District Mand I gave up my position as Central Office Liaison forDistrict 2. I did not resign from the Central Office. Irepeat...I did not resign from the Central Office. If youhear announcements being made that I have resigned,please inform the group that I AM NOT RESIGNING!Thanks and Keep Coming Back! tws:) Central Office ManagerON CULTIVATING TOLERANCEDuring nine years in AA I have observed that those who followthe AA program with the greatest earnestness and zeal not onlymaintain sobriety, but often acquire finer characteristics andattitudes as well. One of these is tolerance. Tolerance expressesitself in a variety of ways: in kindness and consideration towardthe man or woman who is just beginning the march along thespiritual path; in the understanding of those who perhaps havebeen less fortunate in educational advantages; and in sympathytoward those whose religious ideas may seem to be at greatvariance with our own. I am reminded in this connection of thepicture of a hub with it’s radiating spokes. We all start at theouter circumference and approach our destination by one ofmany routes. To say that one spoke is much better than all theother spokes is true only in the sense of it’s being best suited toyou as an individual. Human nature is such that without somedegree of tolerance each one of us might be inclined to believethat we have found the best or perhaps the shortest spoke.Without some tolerance we might tend to become a bit smug orsuperior—which of course is not helpful to the person we aretrying to help, and may be quite painful or obnoxious to others.No one of us wishes to do anything which might act as adeterrent to the advancement of another, and a patronizingattitude can slow up this process. Tolerance furnishes, as aby-product, a greater freedom from the tendency to cling topreconceived ideas and stubbornly adhered to opinions. In otherwords it often promotes an open-mindedness which is vastlyimportant in fact a prerequisite to the successful termination ofany line of search, whether it be scientific or spiritual. These,then, are a few of the reasons why an attempt to acquiretolerance should be made by each one of us.Dr. Bob of Akron/ Reprint Permission/AA Grapevine July 1944

Monthly Newsletter of theTri-County Central Office, Inc. Tampa, Florida 33614-2763August, 2011 page 3A GOOD FIGHT TO LOSE..continued from page Onewith a disease, so I make the most of it, and rebuild my lifearound the fact. There is the spiritual phase to AlcoholicsAnonymous. Most people have a preconceived idea that weAA’s are a bunch of hymn singers, bible thumpers, and pleasurehaters. To quote from a speaker at Albuquerque: AA doesn’tcare whether you were sprinkled, baptized, or dry-cleaned. AProtestant, a Catholic, and a Jew can go on a two-weeks binge,and they will look alike, act alike, and smell alike. You simplyhave to have some kind of faith in AA. When the tornado usedto strike down there in the short grass country, mother wouldgrab us and head for the storm cellar. We didn’t ask the othersinside that storm cellar if they were Rotarians or Kiwanians.Faith is like a radio: I frankly don’t understand how it works, butI can accept it and enjoy it. Neither do I understand all about aHigher Power, but I can accept Him and enjoy Him. And AAhas given me an entirelt different notion about Him: I believewith all my heart that God is a happy God, and He likes to see ushappy, too. All of us have tried to stop drinking. We tried love,law, medicine—all man-made powers. The only power that putan end to our drinking was a Power greater than any of us. Andwhen we accept that Higher Power, a change will come over us,and we’ll be the last person in the world to know about it. Thethird part of AA is the inventory and restitution. AA itself is away of life. You can’t sit down and say, well, I’m sober, and letit go at that. AA is a program of personal growth, emotionalgrowth, spiritual growth, mental growth. It’s a program in whichyou learn to be part of life and to give to life. In taking ourinventory and getting our lives in order, we just straighten upsome of the mess we were in. And I quote another speaker fromTexas: the more I worried, the more I drank. The more I drank,the more I worried. That wasn’t entirely normal, was it? Anormal person will either stop worrying or stop drinking.Finally, the fourth phase of AA: the active work. You can’t forcesobriety; it has to be of your own free choice. And you have tosafeguard it. In active work in AA, attending meetings, going onTwelfth Step calls, just smiling at people and giving them ahearty handshake, we safeguard our own happiness by sharingour sobriety with others. There is the gratitude of remembrance.Sometimes we forget how grateful we actually are for what AAhas given us. We didn’t know the meaning of the wordfriendship before. I’ve heard a person is a success if he can counthis friends on five fingers. We have 150,000 or so. And when weforget what AA has done for us, when we stop coming tomeetings or helping others, we are letting somebody down. Toquote Macon F.: AA is not a rocking chair program. We can’tjust sit back and rock and rock. We’ve all ridden bicycles. Wekeep going as long as we keep pedaling. But when we stoppedaling, and still go along, we are going downhill. My innateego still surges when I heard someone say of me “that guy sureknows his AA.” Actually, all of this knowledge is borrowed, butborrowed for keeps. If I had not attended meetings, I would havemissed these precious gems which have become a part of mydaily thinking. So I keep on attending meetings, picking upborrowed treasures from Walt and Ray and John. I have been inAA seven years, now. I don’t have to attend meetings. I canalways go back to drinking. I can always go Next columnJUDGE NOT...At times we run into disappointments. Someone who wethought was an ideal member of AA suddenly takes on adifferent roll. We fail to realize or remember that we are only agroup of individuals and that we all have different ways ofstaying sober and working the program. So when we hearsomething about a guy who has been a leader in ourorganization and a guy whom we have for many years lookedup to and respected, it makes it hard for us to accept some ofthe things that we think of in regard to our Twelve Steps. Thenwe suddenly realize that it doesn’t make any difference to us,that the way some one else stays sober is none of our business.The only thing that should concern us is how we stay sober andpractice the principles of the Twelve Steps in our dailyprogram. When we look in the glass that is the guy we have tosatisfy and not the other guys who maybe we can’t quiteunderstand how they can do the things that they have done. Soafter all, why should we even so much as let the thought enterour heads that that guy isn’t doing right. If he isn’t, he is theguy that will know; he’s the guy that he has to satisfy. If we letwhat he does bother us, then we are in danger of taking a drinkbecause the old resentments must be coming back again; andthey are something that all of us have been bothered with foryears. Let’s just be thankful that we are sober and that we haveour Twelve Steps to turn to and show us the way to go on livinga good life regardless of the things that we hear and see goingon around us. After all, who are we to judge? Maybe to somethis is hard to do, but I think it is the hard things we have to dothat denote our growth on the AA program which is oursalvation. Let’s all try to do a better job of living this programand practicing these principles in all our affairs all the time.Cedar Rapids Newsletter, Cedar Rapids, IowaReprint Permission/AA Grapevine/ August 1954Q - If an alcoholic comes to an A.A. meeting under theinfluence of alcohol, how do you treat him or handle himduring the meeting? A - Groups will usually rum amuck on thatsort of question. At first we are likely to say that we are going tobe supermen and save every drunk in town. The fact is that a greatmany of them just don't want to stop. They come, but theyinterfere very greatly with the meeting. Then, being still ratherintolerant, the group will swing way over in the other directionand say, "No drunks around these meetings." We get forcible andput them out of the meeting, saying, "You're welcome here if yoursober." But the general rule in most places is that if a personcomes for the first or second time and can sit quietly in themeeting, without creating an uproar, nobody bothers him. On theother hand, if he's a chronic "slipper" and interferes with themeetings, we lead him out gently, or maybe not so gently, on thetheory that one man cannot be permitted to hold up the recoveryof others. The theory is "the greatest good for the greatestnumber." Bill W. (Yale Summer School of Alcohol Studies, June 1945)A GOOD FIGHT TO LOSE..continued from previous columnback to being a drunken bum, a hopeless, frightened derelict,living the miserable, lonely life of an alcoholic. But somehow,I’d rather be happy. I quote Bill: I don’t ever want to sober upagain. K.J., Pikes Peak Group, Colorado Springs, Colo.Reprint Permission/AA Grapevine/ August 1954

Thiswas followed by the Serenity Prayer. Jim read the June minutes.There were no questions or corrections and the minutes wereaccepted as is. Stan presented the June Treasurer’s report. He notedthat the month wasn’t very good, about $900.00 less than lastmonth which wasn’t very good either. At least we are doing about$2100.00 better for the year to date than last year. Stan stated thatTim had cashed in one of the CD’s. Old business was all about theCD that had been transferred into operational cash. Tim read hisarticle from the July newsletter showing how a typical month goesas far as cash flow goes. Discussion followed about using half ofthe CD for the purchase of books and leaving half in a savingsaccount to be used if needed. The Council meeting was a mirror ofthe Board meeting with most of the discussions centered aroundthe use of the CD and how to inform the groups of why it’simportant to support Central Office. Some members talked aboutputting two dollars in the basket, one group now had a yellow canput out for donations to the pie-chart, another group had a greencan for Central Office and one member noted that every othermonth their extra money had been allocated for Central Office.One member asked if Central Office donated to New York andTim replied that we had in the past but haven’t had the extra cashto do for quite some time. There was no new business. Severalannouncements were made. Patti asked for some guidelines ondoing an All Groups meeting. Al noted he and Tim werecelebrating 23 years this month. Earle W. was celebrating 18 years,Steve J. was celebrating 24 years and Jennifer U. was celebrating 1year. Martin suggested that we start having cake to celebrate ouranniversaries with. The meeting ended fairly early and everyonehad plenty of time to purchase their literature.A man sat in front of his home, contemplating his future. He hadjust gotten a divorce, lost his children, been fired from his job, andnow faced eviction. He noticed a case of beer bottles in his trashand walked up to it. He took out an empty bottle and smashed it,swearing, “You are why I don’t have a wife!” He threw a secondbottle: “You are why I don’t have my children!” And a third: “Youare why I lost my job!” But then he discovered a fourth bottle, stillsealed and full of beer. He took it, tucked it into his pocket, andsaid, “Stand aside my friend—I know you were not involved.”Reprint Permission AA Grapevine/ From: A Rabbit Walks into a BarJuly 12th, 2011 the Central Office Representatives met:COUNCIL MEMBERS REPRESENTING GROUPVIVIAN J.BRIAN L.STEVE J.GENE M.JAMIE H.PATTI L.SUE Z.CHRISTA C.DALE H.JULIET SBDAVE H.JOHN G.JOHN DPBERNIE H.EARLE W.MARTIN S.ANNA M.WES M.JOHN F.MICHELLE C.JOHN R.BILL S.TERRY F.JIM VKMARIA G.ARLENE S.CHRISTOPHER T.WINSTON L.BILL J.CHRIS B.JENNIFER U.JASON O’SFREEDOM IN SOBRIETY GROUPTURNING POINT GROUPODESSA GROUPLIVE & LET LIVE GROUPTAMPA BAY SPEAKERS GROUPMID DAY MATINEE GROUPCLEAN AIR GROUPEXPECT A MIRACLE GROUPSATURDAY SERENITY STUDY GROUPSUNSHINE GROUPNOON BIG BOOK GROUPTAMPA PALMS BIG BOOK GROUPCARDINAL GROUPFRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS GROUPRIVERSIDE GROUPWARRIOR GROUPCAME TO BELIEVE GROUPSOLUTIONS GROUPSOBRENITY GROUPWELLSPRING GROUPAS BILL SEES IT GROUPOLD SCHOOL GROUPPRIMARY PURPOSE GROUPCARROLLWOOD NS GROUPKEEP IT SIMPLE/PASS IT ON GROUPLIVING IN THE SOLUTION GROUPMONDAY NITE MADNESS GROUPPOCO A POCO GROUPEARLY RISERS GROUPNIGHTLY NEWCOMERS GROUPTGIS GROUPKEEP IT SIMPLE MEN’S GROUPCentral Office Softball Tournament(For AA members & their family members only)OCTOBER 29th,2011(Saturday)At Gadsden ParkLocated at: 6901 S.
