If you have an issue with abusing alcohol,you should get connected to some support system. In early sobriety I found it essential to give into the process completely and surrender to the outline of the program,that said I have been around for a very long time and if you have too, you know what I mean the problem is the self righteous attitude of some people who have some time, the sit down and shut up shit is wrong and counter productive, it sets the wrong example for the newcomer and frustrates those of us who have spirituality and can see through those attitudes and recognize that those that behave that way,show how spiritually unfit they really are.Spirituality does not include judging others rather it is building people up and encouraging the fellowship to grow and inspire a sense of rebuilding lives and personal enrichment,so consider how you feel when your there and take what works and surround yourself with the people who are in line with where you want to go,yes meetings are a plenty so find one that works for you and your comfortable at,again for me it just doesn't go far enough to the good,this is my experience and yours may be different and thats good for you,but if you aspire more depth it's not in the rooms of AA. I don't appreciate the predators preying on newcomers either,May your day be blessed,Take care Jonezy I'm ready...
