The lessening of the stigma of being an alcoholic?

Bullshit. . . For any alcoholic, drinking booze is unacceptable behavior.
.
Period. End of story.

What's wrong with war stories?

Seems like some folks in A.A. can't reconcile a qualification with what the book is telling us to do. If we're not talking about how we drank booze, what the fuck are we supposed to talk about? .
.
The weather? Our fiscal strategy? The solution and how you ought to do steps like us winners? .
.
Now, embellishment is quite another matter. Who are you to say another is embellishing their drinking? So what if they are? The next guy is lying by omission. When the truth is spoken, it is known by all. But to label all talks about booze as war stories is unproductive.

... what WE were like, what happened, and what WE are like now

Why do people always say, "... what IT was like, what happened, and what IT is like now"?

The Lord's Prayer in A.A.meetings

I think the Lord's Prayer is a fantastic way to end an A.A. meeting and the Serenity Prayer don't have shit-all to do with A.A.

I think if you're offended that there's some alcoholics in an A.A. meeting who also happen to be Christian,  who also like to express their religious expression to God, you ought to leave A.A. and go find some secular or other-religion based meeting.

Back in Bill W and Dr Bob days, they used to used the Holy Christian Bible.  In my A.A. book it says, "Be quick to see where religious people are right.  Make use of what they offer."

That's exactly what's being done with the Lord's Prayer.

Quit trying to take God out of A.A. meetings or just get the fuck out and take your "It irks me when"s with you.
