Finally a topic that brought me out of hiding! LOL! I have to admit that I felt a little put-out by some comments on other threads about the people who hated meetings and didn't want or need AA, etc.,etc.,etc.! I'm more than willing to say I know my own lousy attitude of late took such comments more along the line of somebody saying my baby is ugly, instead of the live & let live viewpoint I usually try to cultivate.
And I DO have a crummy attitude lately, so I haven't felt I had much worthwhile to share. I'm not making any progress on the weight loss I wanted to make before July (trip to Ireland), and still facing employment and financial uncertainties. Add to this intense busy-ness during my daughter's last 2 weeks of school, and mostly I'm a basket case.
But I'm glad to see people saying they are FRIENDS of Bill W.! I don't know what I'd do or be today if I hadn't found the Program and Fellowship! And only people who have been IN AA (vs. attending meetings they hate) understand what I mean. In a more tolerant view, if others find what they need someplace else, well and good. This is where I found what I needed to face what life brings my way.
Funny, it was this week 23 years ago that I walked into my first meeting. Although I just have the 7 1/2 years sober now, it's been one heckofa ride!
That's all I have tonight, I just wanted to share on this one!
If not now, When?
