Secular face-to-face meetings

Are there secular oriented support group meetings/network? Which approach has the most active network?

I guess not this one, lol... Slowing down around here because of the holidays, I suppose.

I'd suggest you look into SMART. I'm not in it myself, but I know they have face to face meetings. From what I've heard, seems like a great program. We have some SMART folks here; hopefully they chime in!

I have been to a few SMART meetings, a few LifeRing meetings, and several Women for Sobriety (WFS) meetings. I liked things about them all. They all have websites that explain their philosophies and list meetings (although I think people have to email or call to find out about WFS meetings).

I hope you find a meeting that you like close to you.

Currently SMART has the most f2f meetings available. There are close to 300 US weekly meetings that you could attend (others are limited to members of the institutions where they are held). LifeRing has close to 200 weekly meetings in the US. SOS has about 70.

Each organization maintains active meeting lists on their websites, so you could check your state for locations.
