How to Get The Most From a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous in Joy, Illinois

The best way to get the most out of your first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting you should keep an open minded. We all had an idea of what these meeting were and generally it is the same misconception. The most beneficial thing I was told was to sit down, stop talking, pay attention to the message, and graciously ask for help. Regardless of the meeting, that one thing that will always be present is the message of recovering from a hopeless state of mind. The process of recovering from that hopeless state is in asking for help from another person suffering from alcoholism which you will find in any AA meeting you choose to start with.
