ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS CEDAR PARK HOPE GROUP
October 3, 2011

I wish I was providing a more positive experience. Question? What is important to AA members who have multiple years of sobriety? I recently had my 6th year of sobriety. I only celebrated my 2nd and wanted to celebrate my 6th birthday. My 6th year birthday was very special to me to me, the most important one for some reason. Two days before B-day night I had a death in the family. I was informed by a fellow member not to worry just pick up my 6th year chip when I returned. When I returned 2 days later Tim another AA member said sorry you will have to wait until next month, I asked Tim about the chip that should already be here for me. I was basically on my knees at this point. What a slap in the face since my name had been on the white board for the month of September. I guess if you have 20 something of sobriety like Tim does we small folks mean nothing. I am an alcoholic not a drug addict. I have never taken a drug in my life. The night of my 6th Birthday I found a NA meeting in South East Austin at 11:30am, not smart but they got me a chip and a link so I could order a 6 yr AA chip. I enjoyed the nice folks I met at Hope. Good luck to you. I will be attending another group moving forward.
