Depending upon the meeting I'm at, it's pretty common for anywhere from 25% to 75% of what's discussed at a table to be totally contradictory to the AA program. I suppose it's helpful to some ppl though - especially the non-alcoholics who are there.

The "meetings" I've been to before and/or after the formal AA meeting though..... it's almost never that I hear these same contradictions. Probably because those who understand it's imperative to share the program with others, the same ppl who are actually trying to work all the principles in all their affairs..... they're usually the ones who show up early or stay late to talk to the ppl who new or just searching for a solution.
