I don't think I've heard it put that way before - think I'll remember that! (That is, the "raw honesty" part.)
I've heard it said, and seen it "implied" that honesty can sometimes chase some people back out there to drinking. Maybe - maybe not? Last time I checked, I didn't have enough power to make someone else drink again. I swear, I never held a gun to nobody's head and tell them "go back out drinking, OR ELSE!" I believe that Honesty, Open-mindedness, and Willingness (the H.O.W. to of sobriety) are "essentials" like the book says. For me if any one of those is missing or compromised, I will drink again. From what I've seen with other alcoholics, it works the same.
I'm glad you could join us. Don't be afeared now!
