In many areas, especially at times when newer members might find themselves tempted to drink, like Christmas and New Years, some groups have meetings which last for a long time, often 24 hrs. People come and go, and it’s mainly just to have other alcoholics around at that time, this is called an alchothon, like marathon for alcoholics, thanks for the question.
