    There was this woman in AA who had the hots for a new comer who only had a couple months of sobriety. She told her sponsor she wanted to see this new guy romantically. Knowing that newcomers are discouraged from starting new relationships in their first year of sobriety the sponsor told her sponsee to go home and read what Bill W. had written about sex on page 69 of the Big Book.

    So the sponsee went home and being blond, got confused and turned her Big Book to page 96 by mistake. This is what she found...

He often says that if he had continued to work on them, he might have deprived many others, who have since recovered, of their chance.
