Good morning. This is the Friday online meeting of the Step 2 Men’s Group of Alcoholics Anonymous. My name is Brad and I am an alcoholic and your meeting secretary. Let us take a moment of silence, to do with as you wish, followed by the Serenity Prayer:
Please mute your microphones. You can mute/unmute your telephone using *6
The following is a definition of AA:
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
If there are any new members, persons in their first 30 days of sobriety, please introduce yourselves now by your first names only, so that we may welcome you. (pause). If there are any visitors to this meeting from other meetings or outside the Sacramento area, please introduce yourselves by your first name so that we may get to know you.
Are there any announcements?
We meet here online 7 weekdays at 11:30am
This is a one hour meeting. The Chairperson has a 10 minute limit; all others have a 5 minute limit. Please respect the person speaking, avoiding cross-talk, confrontations, or intimidation. Please preserve each person’s anonymity and the confidentiality of what is shared here, so that no one will be discouraged from attending the meeting out of personal fear or embarrassment.
