Service work


I am retired.
My entire social life revolves around gay, recovering alcoholics. It's all about ...
SERVICE WORK.

It keeps me happy.
It keeps me busy.
It keeps me sober.

Service work / helping others / it's all good dAAve. Now that I will be returning to work next week it will be hard for me to stick to my meeting schedule but you can be damn sure I will be continuing with my service work and helping others. Nice picture.
I see you,
JJ

Good for you and good for all those drunks you come in contact with every day. I think working at an AA club was one of the toughest jobs I have ever had.

I volunterr a lot of time at a sober house for men, it's where my hme group is. When I first started going there 2 years ago, there were very few women going to meetings there, but now the ratio is pretty equal. Summers are hard for me because the kids are home, I dont do as much as Id like, but they go back to school on Wednesday and I can resume my service schedule :) Great post, can I have some coffe please!

Thanks for the welcome, Dave. I am currently reading Doughgirl's entire blog from start to finish, I make it my business to know all I can about those people who respond to me and are kind enough to show an interest in me. When I finish reading hers I will start yours. I think it is great that you spend your time helping others, it is something I am considering doing when I get my life together. After all, people who recover and help others are making changes to people's lives instead of mouldering in the gutter or worse, dying, which is something I have contemplated sadly. Keep up the good work, man.

Taking a page from your book, guess who just signed on for three months of service as Co-Literature Chair at a nondisclosed Manhattan location??
