I have just moved to Baltimore from Atlanta, where I got sober. I loved my meetings there and am having trouble finding good ones in Baltimore. I live in the city/downtown area. I realize AA teaches us to not see differences, but I am having trouble finding meetings I feel comfortable in. Because I live in the city most of the meetings I've gone to are more low-bottom-drunk oriented. When I lived in the city of Atlanta, I had an array of more high-bottom, professional, and young people's meetings to choose from without having to drive too far. I fear the low-bottom drunk meetings combined with their location in areas I do not feel safe in are starting to threaten my sobriety. I am having trouble relating to their stories, which can dangerously threaten my sobriety (esp. this early on) because I feel it gives me more ammunution to deny that I am an alcoholic. I am only 8 months sober, and haven't been to a meeting since my second month up here back in April. Dry and looking for good direction...ODAT11
