The Most Important Job in AA
WHEN I WAS new in AA, I went to the meetings and sat in the chairs and drank the coffee and tried to make sense out of what I heard. After a while, I picked up the pamphlets and read them. Later, I bought a Big Book and began to read that. I stayed sober, and my family life and my business affairs improved, and I continued to sit in the chairs and drink the coffee. But, like a small, protected child, never once did I wonder why the chairs were always in place and why the coffee was always ready when I came into the meeting hall.
