"We do not relate intimate experiences of another member unless we are are sure he would approve. we find it better, when possible, to stick to our own stories. A man may criticize or laugh at himself and it will affect others favorably, but criticism or ridicule aimed at someone else often produces the contrary effect."
Alcoholics Anonymous, pg. 125
