44. Nor has this been my experience

I'm not in the least religious and AA has worked for me. I "take what I want and leave the rest." I'm celebrating four years sober at the end of this month.

As for AA members being "nice," it's odd that I would read this post today. When my mother was dying in the hospital in 2011, my fellow AAs supported me and my sponsor refused to leave me alone even though I encouraged her to go home. I didn't drink. And today I accompanied her to the vet, where she had to have her dog, whom I love as much as my own, put down. Another AA friend drove us. It's been a horrible day, but we're still sober.
