I just left an AA meeting. It never ceases to amaze me how good I feel after attending one. My friends in 12 step fellowships are the most genuine, loving, accepting, and spiritual of people. I have never been more welcomed by any group or organization.
Which is especially cool considering that I don’t happen to be an alcoholic.
Only by the grace of God am I not. I have a highly addictive personality but am blessed with a body that cannot tolerate alcohol. I am further blessed to have become a father at a very young age. In addition to the miracles that brought to my life, it ended any further experimentation with drugs. I am confident that I’d have become addicted to every substance I might have tried.
