I sure identify with that! Sat at many a meetings by myself waiting for an alcoholic prospect to drop in! They were some of the best meetings that I've ever been to!
While I made the meeting available... I didn't forget that my
primary purpose was to carry the message to
the alcoholic that was still suffering... and not just wait for them to show up at the meeting!.
AA'ers used to accuse me of chasing drunks... and I was! Heck, I'm alcoholic. Real alcoholic. I must
be trying to find an alcoholic to help. I wish I had the luxury of waiting for them to find me... it would be easier. But, maybe not as fun and exciting! I've got lots of wonderful stories to remember... of this alcoholic trying to reach another alcoholic. And, guess what??? It kept me sober!
I'm glad that other AA'ers don't have to do what I do and have done to stay sober. Or else... it would be too danged crowded out there and the competition would be too much for me!
