Okay so I just went to my first meeting in 3 weeks. During that time I was away with work and also relapsed. So I decided to try out this young people's meeting cause my counselor had been encouraging me to for a while. So it had to be the worst meeting every. There were people sitting in the back talking between themselves, laughing at whoever was sharing, getting up and walking around, throwing shit at each other etc. Then there was the dude next to me wearing a freaky skirt and playing with his pocket knife while looking at me. Then there was the guys who just talked about their drug problems, their felonies etc...basically glorified all their problems. There was the person who made a joke about the basket paying for prostitutes for the guys. So eventually I got up and walked out. I left feeling more shitty then when I got in there. I needed a meeting, I needed to hear something that gave me hope and instead I just left feeling crappy. My question is whether or not it is okay to get up and leave a meeting in the middle or not? What would you have done?
