I have attended discussion meetings wanting to help myself and others grow in sobriety, but left these meetings feeling that there wasn't much AA recovery in those rooms. When I spoke about it with my sponsor and other discussion group regulars, they said that there are no bad Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Examine what I had taken to the meeting, they said, and think about what I had done to make it better.

Imagine my despair at the thought that I didn't fit in at the only place I fit in. Did this mean I wanted to drink? I was told it did.
