A Small, Sober Fish in a Big Freakin’ Pond…

Advertisements

I was at a meeting yesterday. Collectively, we had 198 years of sobriety in that room. I counted.

Alone, those two items don’t equate to a very big deal – that happens all of the time in the program.

A little context makes that meeting rare, though…

There were only six people in the room, and I was almost the noob in the group with just 25 years. There were four with more than 36 years, myself and another with 25.

It’s a rare day I walk into a meeting feeling like the noob, and that Monday meeting was as good as it gets. I didn’t even share much for fear of getting in the way. I just sat back and watched it happen, simply grateful to be in the room to watch it.

Good times and noodle salad. It was as good as it gets.

    I feel like a newcomer last week listening to a guy sober just 2 days. Brought it all back. Absolutely no way I’d stop going to meetings for any length of time. Did it a few years back for a couple of months. Not a great idea. Obviously didn’t drink but also probably a joy to be around 🙂

    Wow! I’ve watched the show Elementary and it amazes me the stages, triggers and obstacles down the sober trail and how important meetings are long term.
