HANDY REASONS NOT TO
GO MEETINGS

I won't know anybody there.
I might know somebody there.
I've had a great week -- who needs it?
I've had a rotten week -- who feels up to it?
I'm embarrassed; people will see I've gained weight.
I'm losing weight on my own; why would I need to go?
The weather's awful. It's too icky to go out.
The weather's beautiful. Who wants to stay indoors?
That meeting's too large. I feel lost.
That meeting's too small. I feel conspicuous.
I haven't been to a meeting in ages.
I've been going to meetings for ages.
I might see a reflection of myself in somebody I don't like.
