first time online

I just signed up to this forum. I am a recovering addict looking to talk with other recovering addicts. I am unable at the present time to attend meetings so I read the NA book to keep clean. It has been doing wonders reading, but I would like to reach out to others here.

I hope you continue to stay clean but the literature is only one part of the recovery process. Meetings are a big part along with sponsorship. Do you have a sponsor or a home group? All of these components help so much to stay clean.

I have a meeting almost every night with my girlfriend. We read out of the NA book and I just bought another book called Living Clean, the Journey Continues. I look forward to making meetings, I have a sponsor though. He understands that I have social anxiety so he is giving me time to get into the rooms. Another problem I have is when people at the meetings (I've attended in the past) pushed me out because of my God-dependence. I trust that GOD will work out these issues. I look forward to getting to meetings with other recovering addicts. Thank you for responding.

I am new at this. I am unable to go to meetings due to being on home confinement. It seems crazy that somebody out of prison would be kept from seeking a health support system. I hope to find support this way until I am able to go to meetings myself. I look forward to your feedback.

The first tip for WOW Gold Alchemy is [url=http://www.rsgoldfast.com/]Cheap Runescape Gold[/url] that you should not cost your gold to buy items at the Community public auction House. If you always buy items there, it will spend a lot of [url=http://www.royalwowgold.com/]Cheap WOW Gold[/url] your WOW gold and you will also absence of gold.
