AA History Workshop in Plymouth

Plymouth Members Enjoy AA History Workshop

Plymouth AA Intergroup held a special “History of AA in Plymouth” Workshop on Sunday 12th August 2018, which was well attended by intergroup officers and other, observing, AA members. As with all intergroup meetings all AA members are welcome to come along and observe.

The meeting started at 10 o’clock with preliminaries, introductions and matters arising from the minutes of the last meeting. This was followed by the History of AA in Plymouth Workshop, in which speakers Brian FS and Ian M shared some fascinating stories from AA’s beginnings in Ohio, USA, to the present day in Plymouth, describing key turning points and well-known local characters from the past. The speakers then offered a Q and A session which made for an informal and sometimes amusing discussion.

Various AA Articles

STEP FIVE CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER
I have been sober in Alcoholics Anonymous for 22 years and step five has changed my life forever. The reason why is that I was never right from an early age. I felt like a square peg in a round hole. It seemed like everyone else had the script to life and I didn’t. I was uncomfortable around people and felt like they were trying to have one over on me. I became a victim blaming people places and things for how I felt. Alcohol made me feel comfortable. It smoothed the edges off. Made me feel like I was a part of again, where things did not bother me. I would not listen or take advice. An extreme version self-will run riot.

In my early twenties I was broken. I was crushed by this self-imposed crisis. I could not go on. I was never cut out for a crazy life even though I had some great times I wished for the end. When I arrived in AA I was beaten. My life was in the balance because I had not realised what I was suffering from.
