Recovery Working the Program Let’s Ask Permission By admin Posted on February 1, 2020 1 min read 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr I have been in OA for nineteen years. Recently, after a Big Book study meeting, another member of the group told me I never share on the portion of the Big Book that is being read and that I always just share on whatever I want. Well, I was shocked and felt attacked. What I want to ask of everyone is to first ask for permission to speak with someone about their share if you want to say something to them after the meeting. I usually feel safe at meetings, but I haven’t been back to that meeting since. I will go back. I just wanted to share my experience, strength, and hope. — Trisha R.
