I have observed through my membership with AA, that it's a wonderful program if you work it to the best of your ability. However, I sadly say that it seems to be getting more watered down each time I go. I don't know if it's because the court system has flooded AA with mandates for people on probation. If there are too many people there for the wrong reasons such as finding a handout, a job, a place to stay or just a free cup of coffee. Or is it because through the generations of sponsor/sponsee relationships, personal interpretations of the program and the "Big Book" have drifted away from it's original direction? I don't know. If you are involved with this fellowship, how do you feel?
