There are many people out there who have not heard of AA. There are many, too, such as sea-goers, homers, loners, those in remote areas of the planet, who are staying sober because they are willing to go to any length. It's "easier" today, to stay in contact with other alcoholics because of this lovely little contraption in front of us, there are many, too though, who do not have a computer. There is another angle some of you may not be aware of, that is besides the Grapevine and Box 4-5-9, it is a little yellow newsletter type of bulletin titled: AA Loners-Internationalists Meeting. This gives us an avenue to help those via snail mail. The bulletin is sent out every couple of months, and you do not have to be a homer, loner or sea-goer in order to be a part of this 'group'. We are welcome to "pen-pal" with other members who are not able to get to a meeting. This was started by a fella by the name of Captain Jack many moons ago, and is still going strong today. For those of us who are able to get to live meetings, and have access to internet meetings, we are most welcome to become a part of the Loners-Internationalist Meeting, so that we can share what we've heard and learned with others. To become a part of this, for anyone who might be interested, simply write to head office: Box 459, Grand Central Station, New York, NY; 10163. This bulletin is a confidential bulletin. The names and addresses listed in the bulletins are to be used only by LIM
(Loners-Internationalists Meeting) members.
Another thing that is happening is, meetings over the phone ### the "telephone therapy" that we are to all use ####, what this is, is, lets say your group in Little Rock, connects by phone to a group in, lets say, Norman Wells, Northwest Territories, and together, you have a meeting over the phone.
There are so many ways to use AA., we just have to be willing to go to any length to carry the message
. And, head office...well...they've thought of all of us out here
In the Spirit of the fellowship,
