I'm about 8.5 years sober and lately when I go to a meeting it seems like an eternity to sit there for an hour or an hour and a half. For the first 6 years my home group was very important to me and was very active in service. Since then something has changed and I have started to wonder if meetings are really necessary for sobriety at this point. Don't get me wrong, I'm very grateful that I don't have to live the way I used to, but it seems like every meeting it's different people saying the same things and it bores me to the point where I don't even want to be there anymore. Sorry if this sounds negative, delete if you want.
