5. how do you know my story?

welcome. somehow you and i have been sharing the same story. i have been attending AA meetings since late august last year. I am wiccian, so the christian stuff really doesn't work for me. i'm learning, in the meetings and life, to take what i need/want and leave the rest. my friend group isn't big drinkers, so i can't speak to that friend issue exactly but some of the women and men i've met at the rooms and in parties that are AA in nature, have been some of the most interesting ones ever. the last party i went to, work christmas party, i noticed that some had alcohol, some may not have had it. the ones who began to get lit, looked really silly, and slightly pathetic to my eyes. since i get more quiet, usually, i'm hoping that i didn't ever make that type of impression, at work parties and in real life with friends. i'll still keep going to the work parties, a valuable networking tool and i still love my friends and being with them. hope to see you in a room, or a cyber room as you need. i can offer my full hearted support.
