Not So Open Minded

I have to say, that I am an open-minded person, but looking back now, when I attended my first few AA meetings, after a 30 day rehab stay almost eight years ago, I think that I wasn’t as open-minded as I have always been. I guess that I was looking for, was something to fit my needs rather than a program that was going to help me stay sober. In my mind and to my shrink, I complained about what I didn’t like about AA, but I didn’t talk much about how it could have helped me. I think that in a way, I was setting myself up to fail and fail I did my friends.

I know that I have just attended one meeting in the last few days, but I have a good feeling about this time around. Today will be my second meeting this week and I have to say, that I am really looking forward to it. I’m willing to give the program a chance. In other words, I believe that this is the only way that I can stay sober… by hanging around people who have been able to do it for years, through the help of the AA program. Plus I have been going with a good friend of mine, which really does help a lot.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
