Need help in dealing with some men that have appeared to have taken rumshot over meetings.
One man sometimes smokes during meeting eventhough its city ord that he can't. Noone will confront him but some people will just leave. This group of about 4 individual men come and go as they choose and disrupt meetings. Totally disrepectfull of other, newcomers can't help but think that these meetings are nothing more than a kindergarden class. Case in point:
During a meeting 3 men were up and down, made paper airplanes during the meeting loudly, grt none were thrown. Also a huge deal is made about cross talk and some sort of cheerleading prior to someone sharing. These men obviouly have control over this group because nonone will confront and be firm with them, most of the members rationize about "principle before personality". People, agreed, we are sick people trying to get our lifes together but dealing with older gentlement acting out for attention, when is it time to confront and ask these guys to step out. Or should we allow 3 or 4 Peter Pans to passively ruin these group. Case in point, the night these guys were acting like cheerleaders and making paper planes, there was at least 3 newcomers. I've only seen 1 guy return. Sad, what does anyone suggest to make this group the recovery group that it shows it can be w/o all the histriontics.
