Why Are You Here?

I came for the pie!

You’re here because someone made you come.

You’re here because you want to stop drinking.

You’re here because you don’t want to go to jail.

You’re here because you want to save your marriage.

You’re here because the court made you come.

You’re here because your way (your many ways) aren’t working.

You’re here because it’s your last hope.

You’re here because you have nothing else to do.

You’re here because you think you might have a problem.

You’re here because someone asked you to check it out.

You’re here because you love it here.

You’re here because it’s your home.

You’re here because you lost a bet.

You’re here because your therapist made you come.

You’re here to make your wife/husband/kids/parents shut up.

You’re here to remember what it was like.

You’re here so you don’t slip.

You’re here to give it back, pay it forward and pass it on.

You’re here because it works.

I was told, when I first showed up at meetings and found myself to be very, very different from most of the people there (in some ways, exactly alike in others) that no one ends up there by accident or mistake.  I believe it.
