Someone has to be different -- so let it be me. I'll make a public judgement.
We've had many new threads started here in the forum recently that deal w/ the behaviors and the profanity in meetings. Evidently it must be now getting to others as much as it's gotten to me in the past.
I prefer structure and discipline in meetings. Since I rarely find it in the local groups where I live -- I soak up as much of it as I can get when visiting my home groups 1500 miles away from home.
For me, I now hang out in the back -- with the newcomer's & court card signers. They are much more respectable in their behaviors -- than the AA's who've been around a while and sit up front doing stuff to get attention and letting everyone know that they are there. (In case we might miss the fact that they are there).
I realize this sounds brutal. I'm not complaining -- just honestly accepting and appraising it as it is.
Is there a solution? The only solution that I can see for it is -- to get a book, a coffee pot and a few bleeding deacons to start a new meeting with structure and discipline. And, let the whiners & complainers talk about "how horrible it is over there in those new meetings w/ structure & discipline!"
If we bring up a discussion of the problem in the meeting -- they seem to soon want to run us out.
