    I went to my first AA meeting yesterday evening, in a small British town not far from home, but far enough away to reduce the likelihood of bumping into someone I know. (Chosen strategy at this early stage – I hope to be braver over time).

    You realize, of course, if everyone adopted this approach then you’d be driving 20 miles only to be in a meeting full of drunks from your home town, while meetings in your home town would be full of drunks from surrounding towns.

    Relax. If you see someone you know, you are both there for the same reason. I used these chance encounters to get to know people better.
