Vaidella: Hi and welcome back . Definitely try to find some meetings that are close enough to you that they are do able. I think meetings are really important. It's probably good that you don't live in west hell. Anyway, definitely try to find some meetings that are close enough for you to get to. There are none where I live, but I attend at least 3 a week and I know of some people who are clean years and years and still go to meetings everyday. If transportation is an issue, after you have made it to a few meetings and you find some people you are comfortable with, you may find someone who lives near you that can pick you up and get you there. You have admitted that you have a problem, now you need to do something about it. You can do this, just take it one day at a time. Definitely come back here and continue to post, there are people here who care that you make it.
