You've got to give to get
I DON'T know what I expected, coming into Alcoholics Anonymous for the first time. I can vividly remember pondering the Steps on the wall during my first meeting. I certainly did not expect to find God or even the more acceptable "Higher Power" there either, but there he (or she) was. The good news was that I had some belief in God before I got to AA, so it did not scare me that much.
