Other drugs at meetings...

Is the concept of a Home Group dying? What is a Home Group anyway? Talk about it here.

This assumes that I have a grudge.

If someone walks into a f2f meeting and starts punching holes in the wall, I will tell them to either stop or leave. That's not a grudge list, it's a statement of reasonable expectation of behaviour and clear consequence of not following the protocol.

Ai jai jai. ... is it possible that we were 'made aware ' of 'punching holes into the wall ' and chose not to see it? Have anyone 'bothered ' to GO BACK and READ with an open mind ALL their OWN responses on ALL the threads since around 29 April? I surely have.
My personal experience in life is to 'try' one way but if 'that way ' fails to produce positive forward movement it will be silly to persue different results following the same formula? Then I try 'the other way ' and see what happens and so I proceed until the positive change /result is visible.
I have found that there are many ways. It's just the pain level that's different. ...
Anyways. .. I'm going off topic here. ...
Have an awesome evening! Our 'long weekend ' is finished so it's back to the grinder tomorrow :lol:
Mwah xxxxxxx

I have Noels. I have also tried to read other's posts with an open mind.

A Very wise member once shared with me. "We tend to judge people by our Own Actions" It happen quite naturally. We have no other bench mark.

I have gained much enlightenment just being open minded. I have also been somewhat cured, not needing any outside help enough that I have went back out.

Today, I look at Everyone that is reaching out for the Hand of AA, I am responsible. Even those that may just have the wrong address. Even listened to a fellows talk for about 10 minutes before helping escort him outside the meeting for 5 minutes. But he was speaking half English, half French, half Ojibway, and half Martian.

When things will only deteriorate further even with a respectful and compliant response, I am making it a habit to say: May God bless you with a long and sober life.

May God bless you with a long and sober life.

Yesterday I was clever and wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

Good Rumi quote!
