Last night was my weekly newcomer meeting filled with in-patients who don't really want to be "in" or "patients". They would rather be "out" and "getting high". A room full of adults with their feet propped in the chair in front of them, whispering, reading magazines during the meeting, and generally just getting on my nerves. I have been going to this aggravating meeting for almost 20 years because there is ALWAYS that handful of people desperate for the solution. I picked up my newcomer chip in that meeting and I never stopped going. I truly love right off the street dope fiends.....aggravation and all.
