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"?
