Many regulars here saw my drunken post couple weeks ago. My sponsor called me, just when I needed her most. Today I called an AA friend, he's been sober almost 25 years. We were talking about my favorite meeting, he told me how it's changed and grown..then out of the blue he said this, "By the Way, Your chair is still waiting for you in the back row where you always sat, I made sure nobody claimed it" Wow, I am so glad to be sober, and I'm just starting over, one day at a time. I'm amazed at the warm welcome AA gave me, they did not make fun of me, they said welcome home. Just want to share that with everybody. And...AA is the only thing that does work for me, it truly works. Thank you to those in this community that did support me even when I was in a very bad way. -Melinda
