I went for over a year and I do not fit ,, I have not tried not to,, it is not allowed for women to be strong I know that a place been there for years and years before the ice age , ie the lunch bunch when I meet any of them out of the meeting they don't talk much,, and I feel a lot more warm fuzzies here that would keep me from medicating on the drink I do not crave it but I went because I was living alone and would self medicate,,, one doesn't dare mess with pardon me the good ole boy hierarchy I believe I have read where many 12 steps don't do the deal for trauma survivors,, so many triggers when the meeting is over it is a clich as with all human nature same people lead same people call on their buddies if you are outspoken you wont get called on unless yo are the almighty oldtimer ,, then you get to stand and pontificate ,, time for a new meeting,, I have talked about it before I was going for the coffee and blowing my diet on the woman who brings the sweets every day AA has helped a lot of folks maybe I am not an alchoholic just a lonely gay love addict LOL well I am lonely except for the dog and you all but I find ways as muj says to meet my own heeds ,, God why am I whining about this again I took lady to the park one of them were there she seemed stoned I might as well join another cult not good for eating disorders and self esteem unless you conform ,, OMG again around we go,,
