The fact that you are going to a meeting is crucial. When I went to my first meeting 3-1/2 months ago, I stunk, was in the middle of detox. My tongue
was white, I couldn't stop sweating or shaking. I stuck it out, and the fellowship of AA and working steps has enabled me to maintain sobriety and begin to make fundamental changes in my life. It's also been responsible for a real nice new job, some of the coolest friends I've had in years, and other bonuses.
