I recently started a new meeting on Wednesday nights. So far, itâ€™s usually Me and Nobody, waiting for Somebody to straggle in. Itâ€™s in the perfect type location that Iâ€™ve come to love... which is where many of my dumpster diving future friends hang out. And, when the weather warms up it gets pretty active. They have honestly been some of the best meetings that Iâ€™ve ever attended!
The format of the meeting currently, is: to read out loud, the full chapter on each of the Steps and Traditions, out of the 12 & 12, and then open the meeting up for discussion after the reading. (Yes. Only one Step at a time... each week).
Tonight, it was Step 5.
I often get targeted for criticism, about my â€œold-fashioned flavor of AA ideasâ€
