    Default AA Meeting

    Yo - I'm trying to start an AA meeting somewhere at the festival this year.
    I know there are meetings in the area, but all it takes are two or more people who have a desire to quit drinking or stay quit.
    I've been sober 3.5 years and have been to Coachella both high and sober. I prefer sober, but I would love it even more if I could touch base with some other AA's. NA's welcome, too. I'm going to make it an open meeting, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to just try to get some friends together on the grass sometime early in the day so we can share for a half hour or more and then go party.
    Send me a private message if yr interested or just reply to this thread.
    1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:

    Ha ha! Epic. Yeah, I'd be down, but I want to keep it all ages. And, you know, not completely ironic and ridiculous. Some people take these things too seriously...

    You've never known someone with a very serious alcohol problem, have you? It's never too anything to drink.

    Id be down, ive been clean of booze for 2 1/2 years but i took the risk of smoking erb again a little while back. Luckily it worked out and i didnt resort back to drinking...

    But like i said im down to help out. I just had to stop going to AA cause they frown on my decision to bask in the wonders of Mary Jane.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Word.

    I'm glad people are weighing in on this, even if half of ya'll are just fucking around and posting goofy shit.
    It's all good. We're starting to get bigger as a group. It will definitely be good to meet some other sober heads and touch base. I know for sure that, personally, if I didn't get sober I wouldn't be able to do cool shit like drop a few hundred bucks on Coachella tickets / be pleasant to be around once I'm there.

    All are welcome to the meeting. It's going to be an open meeting, meaning everyone is welcome, however we ask that you have at least 24 hours clean and sober in order to share. Not that we can like...kick you out or anything...but for the respect of everyone involved, just saying.

    To my man above posting about marijuana maintenance, I would say that I personally find weed to be incongruous with my own personal sobriety, but you are more than welcome to kick it and come by the meeting.

    I'm going to have a AAA meeting next to yours. Everyone bring your maps and we'll see if we can have a tow truck come or maybe jump start a car.

    Looking forward to meeting up with others in recovery during the fest. We'll be getting Thursday, staying in onsite camping. Any thoughts on having a meeting in the morning when the music's over? NA or AA is fine with us. We qualify.

    In the morning when the music's over? Like, around 1am? Or did I misunderstand?

    Right on, We are staying in the campgroud, figure the line to the showers will be unreasonable. It would be a great time to rehydrate, sit down and have a great meeting to close out the night and grab a little fellowship.

    I will not attend, but right on for you guys staying strong whilst in the lion's den. My parents were both alcoholics, and I almost lost them. I'm personally down to drinking 1 or 2 beers/glasses of wine every couple of weeks. Food is a much higher priority on my budget these days.

    To the scoffers: you will never understand the reasons not to drink till you find yourself rationaliszing every reason to drink everyday

    and non campers are left out? exclusion is a trigger.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."
