Question by blazerr75: What is the typical experience of these AA meetings?

Best answer:

Answer by jesaguy
The typical experience is to sit in a room with a number of ex alcoholics and listen to their life stories. They tell of what got them started, what they did while drinking and what led them to AA. often the court makes them attend so they are not there voluntarily. They discuss how they have been tempted to start drinking again and what they do to avoid relapse.

Then there’s a topic, and people are free to share. at the end everyone holds hands in a circle and says the serenity prayer.
if your thinking about going you should, its beneficial even to those who aren’t addicts. I wish everyone worked the 12 steps at least once.
