During my 18 years as a member of AA, I have routinely watched court ordered men and women of all ages attend meetings to get their proof of attendance slip signed. In most cases, these first time offenders pass on the opportunity to share. The few who do share amost always fail to see alcohol as a problem in their lives. Instead, for them, the problem was getting caught.
AA meetings are filled with members who drove drunk countless times during their drinking careers, Some were caught (sometimes multiple times). Some were not. It is the lucky and rare person who realizes they have a problem with alcohol before they have caused great damage to themselves and others as a result of their drinking.
