Like the fact that there are no leaders in AA. It is the same principle of the Gospel Hall that I grew up in. There was no minister, just a group of elders and a committee for different events like the yearly picnic and other community events. I remember the watermelon fights in a community hall with wooden benches and tables, very simple, no pomp and ceremoney.

The only difference was that AA has suggestions and the church had a lot of "thou shall nots." Well there are a few thou shall nots in AA too, don't pick up a drink or a drug (it will take you back to your drug of choice, I know, it is what happened to me). Don't stop going to meetings, don't stop calling your sponsor, if you don't have one, get one. This is a we program, me alone with me is bad company. My best thinking got me to the doors of recovery. That is why it is good to not have one person running the show. We often need to do a reality check.
