Have you ever . . . ?

Have you ever shared something in a meeting and had someone approach you and try to “correct” you? Or have you ever done something in a meeting and had someone point out a better way? If so, did this help or hurt you or your impression of NA?

Mmc December 15, Reading the positive comments on here is great I’m on my first day of the tablet and have only had three ciggies all day I left my packet at home today so I couldn’t reach for one while I was out and it was quiet funny cause I said to my friend I’m just gunna have a smoke went to get it out of my handbag and realised oh I left the packet at home now normally I would have been so devostated that I couldn’t have a smoke and it would of been the end of the world to me but it was kind of strange I just shrugged my shoulders and oh we’ll when normally I would have fought tooth and nail just to have that drag so it seems to be having a good affect on me after day 1. viagra 100mg Hi everyone, It’s very interestin reading everyones comments about Champix and also the fact that a lot of people are blaming the Champix for their side affects.

  1. Yes I’ve had this happen to me before. Sometimes it hurt and sometimes it didn’t depending upon my spiritual condition. I’m learning that the program is in the literature so when a member corrects me, if it lines up with the literature, I’m good. If not, I still listen and put it on the shelf until it’s needed.


  3. I wasn’t at the Avon group of NA Monday night last week. I guess a newcomer wanted to read something that wasn’t NA approved literature, they were shut down by an old timer. Ok so what! is that loving and caring? I guess there was a huge argument that newcomer went ballistic. The meeting was disrupted, they used and are dead now. Do we really have to be so rigid as to not let a newcomer share something that isn’t NA approved literature? Who knows if that would’ve kept them from using? I’ve heard a lot shared in meetings isn’t that what we’re here for to help someone that’s suffering? Being so rigid and not allowing someone to share something that isn’t approved literature? I remember when I was new and gung ho about NA. I attempted to act like this a couple of times and there never was a good outcome. My sponsor said, it was me not the loving and caring environment of NA that it was my self centeredness that tried to take charge. I agree and never acted like that again. I think before we shut someone down especially someone new maybe we should look at ourselves first.
