I just subscribed to Lifeline magazine for 3 years. I've been reading a lot of OA lit lately and seem to get more and more out of it. When I saw that they offer 1, 2, or 3 year subscriptions, my first reaction was that 3 years is a long time. But I'm in this for life right? And if I should relapse (knock wood) I'll get monthly reminders.
Plus, I've been going to meetings for over a year now and it just doesn't seem possible. Someone brought in a bunch of old copies a to a meeting a while ago. That was pretty cool. So if I ever overcome my pack-rat tendencies I can give my copies away.
I read a really cool pamphlet on Anonymity last night. I'm running into this topic a lot lately. I can see that I've broken anonymity traditions, especially in the early days. But also to some friends. I've heard, "When in doubt, leave it out." I'll try to be much better about it. Tradition three feels really important to me. I'm trying to remember some specifics of what struck me last night but I can't. Guess I'll have to read it again.
