Any meeting can be the one that saves a persons life.
I forget -- sometimes -- how much pain I was in, how scared I was in the beginning.
It might be any alcoholics very last AA meeting, maybe they'll say "Fuck it -- I just can't make this" and go drinking.
Happens every day.
It's actually a huge responsibility. Remain awake, maintain sincerity, honesty, hospitality. Keep cognizant the fact that at least two people in the room are in deep pain, keep my cruel comments to myself; alcoholics are so goddamn sensitive, one smart-ass comment and someone might be drinking tonight.
