stupid question

Postby MichalF » Tue Jan 19, 2010 10:32 am

I would like to ask you for your opinion in this subject?

Which is more important in our process of recovery, a first meeting or second one? :wink:

For me, my first meeting was more important at the time than my second one. The reason is: without the first one, there couldn't have been a second one! :wink:

My second, third, fourth and hundredth meetings were as important as my first meeting. I had a tendency not to follow through. While the first meeting got me started, the next meeting and the next and the next helped to keep me on track.

I don't like change and have more often had change thrust on me than I have chosen to change. And after not wanting to do what it takes to stay sober, I've done what it takes to stay sober.

I never asked the question because hitting bottom opened my mind and I became willing go every length at once.
I opened the door took chair and I have not lifted a drink since that date, thanks God.
Thats way I find first meeting as great day in my life, turning point.
Second one had never been considered by me, it was a simple consequence of first and so on.
Until we started founding new group just two guys Every newcomers been welcomed...like an oxygen
:D
Eventually third guy arrived :)
We trayed our best to pass on the message and welcome so warm as We could. It seemed He got it.
next meeting third cup of coffee was unnecessary :(
I cant count how many times I,ve felt this little stab in heart.
Maybe We were not enough warm or said samethnig wrong,or we didnt say what we should, or...etc
I have been faced such cases hundreds. I cant say I got used to.
however it doesnt let me down and make me sad any more.
I lerned that gap between first and second meeting can be 1..2...3...10years
I appreciate new face on meeting but I am very HAPPY if I can see the fellow next meeting. then - WOW! he/she got it!!! got SOMETHING!!!

First Meeting

Postby crazylion » Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:24 pm

For me the first meeting was the most important. Because I realized I had a problem and I knew I needed help. And I also was there for me and not for anyone else.

As I went to more and more meetings I started to understand what it was all about. But the first step meeting was the most important for me. :D

We are very lucky here to have meetings starting as early as 6am.

I guess they are for people who can't sleep, get up early or work makes it handy.
