I saw a therapist yesterday, since the hospital and my husband insisted after my attempt, and among other things she thinks I might be an alcoholic and wants me to try AA. Apparently my score on the MMPI indicated I'm likely to have a substance abuse problem. Admittedly, I've stepped up drinking quite a bit in the last couple of months, but I'm not that bad and it's not like I feel compelled to drink. I also have social anxiety, so sitting in a room full of people who are getting all emotional about the evils of drinking sounds horrifying to me. But, to get them off my back, I agreed to go to one. So, I have some questions for anyone who's been or is currently in AA. What is an average AA meeting like? Do I have to get up and talk or can I just sit there? Are people going to want to talk to me a lot or can I just hide in a corner and try to be inconspicuous?
