Half in the rain

I'm not in OA, but my sponsor is.

I consider myself clean and sober in the 12-Step programs for over 20 years, although I don't really go to meetings or interact with the program anymore. (I can't deal with newcomers and I can't stand old-timers.) I was first taken to teen meetings of OA by my father shortly after he discovered it and had that first flush of success and decided THIS WAS THE ANSWER! Which it was, right up until he wasn't and OA became one of the many failures and retries on the weight-loss roller coaster than ended up killing him.
