Hi, my name is _______ and I am an alcoholic. Are there any other alcoholics present?
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
Are there any alcoholics in their first 30 days? If so, please send a chat to the host with your name and number of days sober.
It is a custom of this meeting to read a portion of Chapter 5 from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and tonight I would like to ask _________ to read it for us.
[CHAPTER 5 READING WILL BE SCREEN-SHARED BY THE HOST]
In the format of our meeting, the leader is asked to share for 5-10 minutes, after which I will call on, and unmute, people to share.. We ask all who are called on to limit their shares to 3-5 minutes. When you have used up your time you will hear an alarm go off.
LEADER SHARES AND THEN PICKS PEOPLE TO SHARE UNTIL 7:55
That is all the time we have for sharing. At this time we would like to recognize those celebrating milestones of sobriety that sent their information to the host.
