Decided to go to a meeting

There's one tonight at 8pm that's fairly close to me anyway, so I may as well check it out. I'll let you know how it goes...

Good to know you are open to exploring all possible
resources because there is so much to enjoy in sobriety.

I'll just say it was interesting... of course it was in french, and though I can speak french, I don't really feel comfortable talking about emotional and personal issues in any other than my native tongue. I did meet another english person there though and got his number... first sober friend. So I guess some good came out of it.

I like what CarolD said, "there's so much to enjoy in sobriety".

Meetings are a great way to stay sober and help other alcoholics to stay sober too. I don't go to very many meetings these days but try to always go to my home group. THey are a fine bunch of people and good hearted and honest. I also get my chips there. I have six now. When I have twelve I'm going to get a clock making kit and make them into a nice clock. I'd love to have an electric/battery version of the old fashioned wall clocks you wound every day. What you all think? Wouldn't that be too cool!

I too want to hear about your meeting experience. Remember also, try several meetings to find where you feel comfortable. If this meeting wasn't to your liking, try others.

Sobriety rocks!
