“Why” Not?

Here’s what i learned today in my meeting.

“Why?” is not a spiritual question.

Meditate on that, MFs. (Uhm, My Fellows).

i’ve said it before, i have never been to a meeting where i left thinking it was a waste of time and i would’ve been better off at home watching TV.


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.

  1. I love the Warrior Higher Power! Good reminder

    I NEVER leave here thinking it was a waste of time.

    No I do not.

    Thanks for doing this. I hope it reaches out and out and out….

    Peace, Jen

    • Thanks for popping in, Jen!

      Thanks for the sweet thought and for the hopes for the blog.

      All i know, though, is i’m doing it for me first because sobriety/AA is an inspiring muse and writing some of these things down is therapeutic. If others can get something from this, so much the better.

      Keep coming back,

      Al K Hall
