Expert Insights

Did you know “happy hour” is illegal in Indiana? Restaurants throughout the Hoosier State are prohibited from offering happy hours. However, policy makers are pushing to make a change that will remove these restrictions. The concern? Along with discounted drink specials, the proposed law would allow carry-out drinks. Is this really a good idea? More than 8,500 Indianans were arrested for DUI in 2019, and the state saw 210 fatalities from alcohol-impaired driving. Cocktails to-go could lead to more alcohol consumption behind the wheel and an increase in these numbers. And there’s nothing “happy” about that.

In contrast, closed meetings are limited to AA members only. They are solely for those who desire to stop drinking.

Big Book Meeting

During a Big Book meeting, attendees discuss material from the Big Book. These materials include the 12 Steps and the 12 Traditions, the history of AA, and information on recovery support. 

Speaker Meeting

During a speaker meeting, an AA member shares their story with the group. Often, this story follows a format of “what I was like, what happened, and what I am like now.” The goal is to offer insight and encouragement based on the speaker’s first-hand experience with addiction. These meetings are usually open.
