I really needed a meeting last night so I got my ass to one.

One of the most spiritual and inspirational moments that I have ever had in an AA meeting happened a few years back at my home groups 7AM meeting during the week. A stranger to our home group came in dressed in a suit..during the meeting (in a round robin style format) he was asked to share. He stood up and said that he was attending a funeral later that morning for his 8 yr. old son that had just died of Leukemia.He said he was at the meeting because he didn't want to drink and he knew he needed to go to a meeting even though he had been sober for several years.....I don't think there was a dry eye in the room.

I never saw him again but I will always remember that morning. We can get through anything that life has to throw at us without a drink....period.

It's been a while since anyone has posted here, so I'll throw out this quote from an old friend of mine who died with 40 plus years of sobriety.
"Spirituality is the thing that I need the most of, but I know the least about."


Pretty self explanatory and very true for me.

Here's another gem from my old friend referring to the old phrase "One drink will get you drunk" This refers to the Alcoholic symptom of never only having A single drink...... It ain't the caboose that kills ya!
I wish everyone some peace of mind and little cravings for a drink.:sunny::peace:

I’ve heard that at meetings

After I hear those analogies or little inside jokes or whatever more than once they start to feel so cringey

But I’m a goddamn broken record too

I love when someone strange and new comes in and starts up with random unexpected shit

It’s always like let the old timers speak - shit I like the crazy shit newbies say

"I didn’t dive on one fumble because the way my leg was (positioned)," Newton told reporters in Charlotte on Tuesday. "It could have been contorted in a way. You say my effort? I didn’t dive down. I fumbled - that’s fine. That’s fine. We didn’t lose the game because of that fumble.”

It’s strange when I think about it and how long I wasn’t me.  Life is backwards, figure it out just in time to get ejected and the new dumb crew stumble through.  Oddly similar to an industrial assembly line..:sherlock:

I really think I’m good this time.  I had a real good excuse to have a beer a month or so ago and about half way through (it wasn’t a thought, it was a muscle memory urge, in my chest.  Like an instinct) I countered with a ‘fuck all that trouble’..  it doesn’t even get through now, it’s spell isn’t there.  In hindsight it’s odd I rolled over so easily through that whole thing but man, I wanted every ounce..  there’s something going on in there :tinfoil:

Anyways still rocking my 1 day chip..:thumbup:

Last meeting I was at was a few months ago, I only went because it was Friday night and I was bored and I didn't feel that was a good combination. It was a small meeting, only about 10 of us, and usual thing, the old boy at the front rambled on for 10 minutes about how he used to be a postman on the speakers mums street etc etc.

Everyone had shared and the last guy is sharing, talking about boxing and some other shit and says "what time are we finishing tonight? Half 10?" Yeah "I've 10 more minutes then? Good I can talk more about my favourite subject. Fucking me!!" :laugh2:

Funniest thing I've heard in a meeting lol.
