Heard at a meeting - 090628

After staying quiet through the "keep coming back" chant at the end of the meeting, say "or, better, just don't leave..."

Sponsor to sponsee: "I agree, your situation is completely as you describe - if I were you I would just go home and and pray for death..."

i've heard any number of variations on the end of meeting chat. personally, i wish were could just end with the prayer. that seems more complete than all the chatting and cutesy phrases.

I agree with the above statement. Yesterday, at a meeting, I heard attributed to Wayne Dyer that if you have trouble with the God word, just add another o to it. It's the same thing.

Whenever I am asked to "Take us out", I always begin with, "Our Father who art in Heaven...."

We chant crap at the end of every meeting - And we wonder why people think we are a cult!

I don't like the chants at all. I heard that some of it came from the rehab groups. We do a closing chant in Al-Anon after we do the Lord's prayer. It is okay but seems too long.
