I just got back from my first naanon meeting

Are all you smart guys on here a chairperson for naranon?!LOL I just got back from my first meeting. (thought I'd better get there after all the people here told me I would benefit from it) Well I was very nervous because I know that I would have expectations that would not be fulfilled.(answers for solutions) so that's why I put it off so long. It was like being on SR in person. I will be going back.

Thanks for everything you guys do for me.

It works if your work it...more than just a corny phrase. The 12 steps can give you a whole new way to live your life. I like your input too. We are in this together.

way to go rasue!! The more you go, the more you get out of it. There are folks there who are in all stages of their recovery. That's the beauty of it.

Live meetings and learning to work the 12 steps saved my life, literally, and continues to ensure that I live life well today.

I am one of those who speak of meetings often, but the thing is that it is the only way I know to get well. Many here get well without meetings, maybe because they cannot attend for various reasons, and I don't pretend that meetings are the only way to do this. But I have never known anyone who attended meetings regularly that did not find a better path for themselves and learn to live a happier life....regardless of how their addict was doing.

Good for you for going, it is a wonderful gift to give yourself.

I hope to attend my first al-anon meeting on Friday night. I went to two different naranon meetings and I felt uncomfortable. I'll let you know. I am balancing two things on Friday so not sure if I am going to make it or not. If not this Friday then the next.

I'm glad you got out of it what you needed.
