A Breath of Fresh Air

I would like to address the subject of a particular kind of special interest group in Alcoholics Anonymous. Over a year ago in our city, a nonsmoking group was started. I have not made this my home group, but I have wanted to do so several times. The main drawbacks preventing my changing groups are the nonsmoking group's distance from my home and the loyalty that has been established at my present home group. However, I make meetings at the nonsmoking group as frequently as I can and find my attendance there to be a real "breath of fresh air."

I managed to quit smoking before I came...
