I found an AA group I felt comfortable in yesterday! It meets at 6:30 a.m. just like my old one. It is close to the house, a little bit farther away from work, but still very manageable. I was at their first meeting back in the mid-nineties, and even named the group. Yesterday, I came in, sat down, most of the folks were strangers to me, but I did know one or two people. They sit around a table in a room in the back of a church. There is only enough room for maybe 12 people there, so everyone gets to share. I looked at their phone list and saw plenty of names with sobriety dates in the 1970s and 80s. They have nightwatch once a month. And they say the 3rd Step Prayer before the meeting. I am very happy about feeling once again like I have a home in AA.
So I better kick it in gear so I can do all the things I want to do this morning.
Oh, and the brat in me wants to go to a meeting downtown at noon today - just to see who I would see (and then NOT tell you about). Other folks might want to go to Hollywood and see movie stars.... but for a political junkie like me, many of the luminaries I would want to meet are just a few miles down the road. I would love to see who is at the meetings down there this week. But it is none of my business, and I will just stay in my own neck of the woods.
Have a great sober day everyone, OK?
