Welcome to the NA forum. Nice to have you here.
Well made points re: Episode One.
If you're going to get into NA for the first time, I suggest you listen to Masterscast Podcast Episode #25 in which I'm interviewed about NA. It will give you some good background information about the series and will answer a lot of questions that will no doubt come up during your viewing of the DVDs. Click on the link, scroll down to Episode #25 and listen in:
I hope you enjoy the rest of NA and, btw, everyone here -- including myself -- is always open to thoughtful, constructive, civil criticism...as well as a bit of praise once in a while.
