Emotions Anonymous

The meeting consisted of one other person, a woman about my age?, and me.  We prayed, shared stories, read the 12 steps and chatted for an hour. (and i drank way to much coffee for after 7pm -but the new wisdom  says that doesn't matter).  But the place was surprisingly easy to find and the drive was pleasant except for a (minor, i suspect) accident a short distiance in front of me as i approached the  offramp.  She will be out  of town next week so i will skip it rather than chance going to an empty room.  There are supposed to be six regular attenders, and the group "normally" has between 4 and 10 in attendance.  I'm glad i went and i will go back.

There seems to have been a dramatic decrease in the number of EA groups.  The Wikipedia article says there were 1,100 groups in the U.S. in 2004.  EA's current website says there 600 groups in the World and i was able to count about 280 in the United States.  A comparison of different 12 step programs  from a demographic or organization theory perspective might make a good Masters Thesis for some interested grad student..

Just think what a mitzvah you made in going and being another, for that faithful woman!

Wow.

As I said, I'd never heard of EA before but it sounds like a worthy support group sort of thing even though there are few participants.
