Thank you Diggerin for the feedback. I am greatful for ppl like my mother who stick around the rooms for the newcommers as well as for themself. If it wasn't for them the program of Alcoholics Anonymous wouldn't be here today. I try to seperate our mother-daughter relationship when we walk into a meeting and try to replace it with an alcoholic trying to help another alcoholic relationship but that just doesn't work either. One thing that does help me, is when she shares I close my eyes and open my ears. Amazing what happend when I become a little open minded.
Maybe I just answered my own question right there. LOL
God bless you all,
