The above readings are suggestions only and are selected at the discretion of the chairperson. Very often there is not sufficient time to cover all of the pages suggested. Other sections of the Big Book, for example, parts of'Bill's Story' and 'A Vision for You' are also used.

Because of the amount of information on Steps 4 and 12 they are each split over 2 weeks. Step 4 is often split to look at resentments in the first week and fear and harms done in the second week. An alternative to this is to look at Why we need to take the 4th Step in the first week and How to take the 4th Step in the second week. Step 12 is often split up into a Spiritial Awakening ... and ... practicing the principle in the first week and carrying the message in the second week.
