Went to my first AA meeting

Reports on my first AA meeting...

I was a sceptic, I thought it would be weird...

It was great, really really great. Everyone was so nice to me, so welcoming. It's not formal at all, and the vast majority there were atheists. I've already got countless phone numbers. There were people from all walks of life there, literally from a lawyer to a recently homeless guy, nobody judged anyone. It's the first time I've actually met other alcoholics face to face, and it really helped. I'm so pleased I finally put the stereotypes aside and tried it.

Although we were dealing with serious issues we all had a laugh. I will definitely be going back tomorrow. So proud of myself for walking through that door
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
