for first step meetings in A.A. It's a tradition at the clubhouse of which I'm a member that whenever there's a first-time newcomer, we have a first step meeting. I mostly love these. But it sometimes amazes me how self-centered some folks can get when they share about their drinking experience(s) instead of saying something that a person with a big hangover might actually understand. Well, I suppose I shouldn't be so judgemental. I have a lot of work to do on me and it needs to be done before I can fix everybody else. LOL
that my Higher Power allows me to screw up as much and as often as I wish. Occasionally I even learn from my mistakes.
that I get to stick around, stay sober and see changes in so many people
