March 2011: Fix me or else
From the March 2011 Grapevine Magazine
Has a notion of a “problem-free” sobriety warped our expectations?
I’ve heard the rumblings that AA has stopped growing, has reached a plateau. Looking around in meetings, from a strictly numerical standpoint, I’m not convinced, as I still see new faces popping up from time to time. And looking outside of meetings, I see no apparent decrease in the number of potential candidates for AA.
Yet, there does seem to be something resonant about the question. Ultimately, it’s not so much about numbers as it is about the kind of growth we do as individuals and as groups.
