Adolph I is sharing based on the reading in the Big Book on page p28 about why we drink, he is a member of the  Chapter IX Group in Buffalo New York. This meeting was held at the Depth and Weight Speaker Group in Buffalo New York in August of 2023.

I just added an event that is happening very soon (9-11th) in Texas, The Texas Al-Anon Alateen Conference details here: https://scast.us/texalateen

Update on the discussion survey from the last week, I was surprised by how many people responded (thank you for doing that) the vast majority were in favor of it, so I am going to move forward with it. It will be a private forum, that was in the lead by quite a bit followed by discord then a facebook group and all the rest after that. It surprised me a bit I was thinking it would be discord but it was a distant second. It will take me a couple of weeks to get it set up, forums have a million settings to tweak and Ill make it as private as I can. I will let you know as soon as its ready, again thank you.

If you have any AA or Al-Anon event coming up let me know I am happy to help get the word out. https://scast.us/events
