Do you keep falling asleep in meetings?
What about all those long and boring drunkalogs & endless war stories?
Get tired of the same old sloganeering, psychobabble and never ending Treatment Center ideas having NOTHING to do with the AA Program detailed in the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous”? Or how about members who are continuously bring up up the same personal problems over and over and over – the same defects – the same painful relationships – some for months and years on end?
Here is a way to change all that...
1. Before (or during) your next meeting, prepare yourself by drawing a square. I find that a 5" x5" is a good size. Divide the card into columns - five across and five down. That will give you 25 one-inch blocks.
2. Write one of the following word/phrases in each block... Such as:
I'm Stuck On Step ___
I Couldn't Find A Meeting
My Sponsor Has Been Out Of Town
10,000 lb. phone
They told me
I want what they've got
Get your self a sponsor
I sponsor myself
Carry the message
But....don't you think
Who told you you could think
Where's the toilet paper
Sorry, I ain't signing your card
Who wants to clean up the trash in my yard this Tuesday
We need a volunteer
3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words or phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"
