PO Box 1980
Sometimes when I attend a meeting I've never attended before, I make an effort to look at it through the eyes of a newcomer. That's what I was doing the other day at a meeting when I heard a speaker who'd been sober twenty-seven years. I thought that the first forty-five minutes of the talk were excellent; they would have made a favorable impression on me, had I been a newcomer. But the other five minutes were a real turn-off.
