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
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!!!
