One Million Friends?
After my second AA meeting ever, I was told by a longtimer that I had a million friends who I hadn’t met yet. I thought he was kidding. I was going to meetings but I certainly didn’t see a million people. I was hoping I might see a hundred new faces, and even that number was going to take a while. The Preamble says that AA is a fellowship. Where was this fellowship? Even after many months and meetings, I still had only met a hundred or so new people. Where were these million new friends that this longtimer told me about?
