I am an alcoholic. Unfortunately, I am not even in the recovery stage. I attended several Alcoholic Anonymous meetings some years ago, and I found it to be anything but a healing process. First of all, I am a non-smoker and those meetings were a smoking festival. If that wasn't bad enough, the people in those meetings argued continuosly about trivial subjects. I found it to be a most unpleasnt environment, so I stopped going. I realize that A.A. has a remarkable record for assisting people who struggle with alcohol, but under the latter circumstances, I tend to stay away.

Has anyone had this experience with such a heralded association as A.A.? I want to stop drinking in the worst way. I am fortunate to have a loving and supportive wife and I know she is aware I suffer from alcoholism, but she never complains. If anyone has any input on this subject, I will be very grateful.

Charles
