Something old! That’s me!! On May 1 I marked 31 years sober in AA.
There are people, I know them, who want to go out most nights to meetings the way they wanted to go out to the bar. There are people who need the endless repetition of the 12 steps and first 164 pages over and over and over again lest they lapse into alcoholic thinking. I’m glad they are there and I suspect they form the backbone of AA.
That’s not me. I drank at home and I prefer to be sober at home. I get bored with the same material interpreted in the same way over and over and over again. I need intellectual stimulation to keep my interested and yes, entertained.
I find all that in AA. I always have, and I have hope and faith that I always will.
