Day Eleven

Charlie, COE.

::Hi, Charlie!::

No time to talk today, just glad to be here and glad to be abstinent. Good face-to-face meeting this morning. Need more of them. No more till Christmas though.

Your primary/home group is holding no more meetings until Christmas? Or are you going on holiday until after Christmas? Considering how hard the holidays are for any addict, I would have thought intergroups would push to schedule more OA events.

Wow . . . I ought to find out if my home group is doing meetings through Christmas and New Year's weeks. On Thanksgiving Day, the regional intergroup hosted a drop-in thankfulness sharing session that lasted much of the day; I hope they will do something like that for Christmas week.

Oh, and there's always online meetings, right?

I hope you can find and get to a few meetings between now and then. At worst, come drop a line on my journal, and I'll get back to you.

No, I didn't mean that. I've been going to a Saturday morning meeting, about the only one I can do in my busy schedule. And I'm a music minister, so Christmas is especially busy. In fact, next week when I would normally be in the OA meeting, I'll be in a rehearsal. That's what I meant. And I know it's a busy time of year and a hard time for addicts. But my life gets BIGGER and BUSIER now until after the first of the year.
