This morning, we are going to talk about Women in AA. We have people representing AA as well as Al-Anon. AA is for people who have a desire to quit, and Al-Anon are for people who have been affected by someone else’s drinking.

But this morning, we want to explore the unique challenges for Women in AA, whether you are an alcoholic or if you love one. What are the barriers, what are the difference, and probably we will discuss some similarities.

Hopefully, there will be surprises.

Just before program, what were your relationships like with other women?
What about after program, has your attitude changed? How?

What was it like as a women in early recovery and is it different for you now?
What is it like to be at a meeting with all women?
What are some discussion topics that are easier to talk about with all women?
What are some discussion topics that are difficult with all women?

Did you have any fears as a woman entering recovery?

What is it like to be at a meeting where you are the only women?
What are some discussion topics that are easier to talk about with men?
What are some discussion topics that are difficult with all men?

Do you attend women only meetings or sit at women only tables?
Do you think this is helpful and why?
What are your opinions of single gender meetings?

Why is Al Anon predominantly women?
Why is AA predominantly men?

What are the barriers to women coming into program?
What steps, prayers, slogans are challenging to women?

What kind of expectations do women feel (from society, from family, etc) and how do we use the 12 steps and the program to navigate those expectations?
How is recovery from alcoholism and addiction different for men and women?
How do women in Al-Anon and women in AA relate to each other? (There's a juicy topic!)

Are you mindful of how you dress to meetings (HOT TOPIC)?

What about sponsorship? Do you have a women sponsor and what about a women having a man sponsor or vice versa?

Are you a mother, or a partner? How do you balance, work, sobriety?

Talk to the woman who is new to the program, what words of encouragement would you give?
What would you tell a woman who has never been to a meeting or is early in recovery.

We have calls

The Recovered Podcast Community is not a glum lot.  They contribute to the show and what they share is exactly what someone else needs to hear.  The new guy needs to hear your story.  So honor your 12th step obligation by calling in and help the guy who has not yet gone to his first meeting, you may make the difference in his life.  There are two ways to add to the show:

  1. Speakpipe Use your mobile or computer and leave a message.  This is the preferred method because the sound quality is excellent.
  2. 1-734-288-7510 is our voice message line.

Now that tri county is over and all the boxes are put away, now that the digital files have been organized, we now have time to reflect on what happened during the Tri County conference of AA. When I am in the moment, I’m not all that aware of what is going on around me.

We are going to talk about our experience strength and hope on the AA conference that the Recovered Podcast participated in. The conference is called Tri-county.

What were your expectations of the conference?
What were your first impressions, what did you see?
What was your experience during the podcasts?
What was your experience listening?
What was your experience participating?
What was most memorable?
What was most forgettable?

What surprised you?
Was anything missing?
Did you see anyone you knew?
Did you meet anyone new?
Did you meet any listeners?

What were some lessons learned?
What would you change?
What would you leave alone?

Do you want to do March Roundup?
If we go out of state to do a conference, would you go?
What about International in 2020?

WE HAVE CALLS

Modern communication in A.A. is flowing from one alcoholic to another
in ways that are high-tech, relatively open-ended and evolving quickly.
Protecting anonymity is a major concern for members, who are accessing
the Internet in ever-growing numbers.

When we use digital media, we are responsible for our own anonymity
and for protecting that of others. When we post, text, or blog, we should
consider whether we are publishing at the public level. When we break
our anonymity in these forums, we may inadvertently break the anonymity
of others.

Conference approved literature clearly defines how to protect anonymity. Conference approved literature states:

A.A.s do not publicly identify themselves as A.A. members using their full names and/or full-face photos.

What technology tools do you use in recovery?
How does it help?
Google groups
Texting
Facebook
Online recovery support podcast

Is there anything special you use with sponsees
What do you recommend to new people?

How does technology hinder your recovery program?

How do you protect your anonymity?

When is texting most appropriate?
When is a phone call most appropriate?
When is face to face most appropriate?

Does anybody use us mail?

What are online meetings?


We have calls
