90 Days--or Just for Today?
The other day, at a social event, I bumped into a newcomer from my home group. "Guess what!" he exclaimed. "I did my 90 days!" When he realized that the party I was with were non-AAs, he changed the subject. Later, one of my non-AA friends asked me, "Did that young man just get out of prison?"
I sometimes wonder about the very heavy emphasis we place on that 90-day suggestion. In my area, group after group, meeting after meeting, the questions are put to us: "Is there anyone here working on 90 days?"; "Is there anyone here celebrating 90 days?"
