My first aa meeting!

WOW! That was amazing! Not what I was expecting at all. What lovely, lovely people. I was shaking like a leaf when I walked through that door and they all welcomed me with open arms. I have never walked into a room before and be greated with such love, understanding, respect and complete exceptence. It put me at ease almost instantly.

I am so glad I went, thank you all for pushing me in the right direction. I actually feel like I now have a fighting chance of beating this is once and for all. I feel so positive. I can do this.

Thank you

Thanks for sharing your experience. You may have helped someone reading here to overcome THEIR fears, and that's a large part of what it's all about.

Believe or not it gets better. Those wonderful people will become friends like you have never had before.

AA is the only place I feel truly safe
