that AA is not a correspondence course
for the 12:15pm weekday AA meeting at Lambda Center -- it must be one of the finest recovery gatherings in these here parts --- yesterday, the gentleman chairing the Tuesday meeting for the month of May told us he had relapsed last weekend; he had 7 years and 8 months clean and sober at the time. The topic of discussion was relapse and relapse prevention (of course). It's all about solutions. There were others present who had less than 1 week sober, so the meeting became rather intense. There was one man (whom I had not seen in 6-8 months) who walked in late, sat down and later tried to share with the group. He could not put enough words together to make a comprehensible sentence. He asked for help. He was in the right place.
for a new topic on SOBRIETY SOCIETY -- please drop in and give us your nickel's worth (inflation)

UPDATE: in case any one wants an answer to exactly who the guys are in the picture, they are Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte. That makes them baseball players. Veteran players of The Yankees and more recently the Houston Astros. They seem to follow each other; when Andy signed with Houston, Roger followed. For 3 years. Then last winter Andy re-signed with New York and now Roger has followed. Again.
