It’s about not drinking.
In a meeting today the discussion was about reservations: Do you have any reservations about not drinking? The examples are plenty and the plus of being around a while is that you know that people have gone thru some horrendous stuff and did not drink.
The speaker asked, “Do you know that you will not drink even if your spouse leaves; you are diagnosed with cancer; you lose your job or your home; all your money; even if your child dies?
He told this story: After his son died he was crying in an AA meeting. After the meeting a woman came up to him and said, “You have the perfect excuse to drink but you don’t have a good reason.
We can have any number of good excuses to drink but we have no reason.
