I went to the local all women’s AA meeting Thursday evening. It was not well attended, three women and me. It was good on an informational level though.
One of the ladies gave me a printed list of all the area AA meetings and made a suggestion about one to attend that could be a better fit. She said it is well attended and has more people in my age range.
She has 26 years of sobriety and still attends three or more meetings each week, and has had good experiences at the suggested meeting.
I was discussing the new possibility with my husband this morning and gave him a few details about the woman’s background.
My husband, the DOCTOR, looked at me and said,”Wow, after all these years she still goes to so many meetings? IS IT REALLY THAT HARD?”
Before I found a blunt object to beat him with, I began to cry, and said, YES, it really IS that hard.
Where is the disconnect?
