first NA meeting this wkend
hi, im v.v.much against writing about drugs (esp in forums with younger people around) because drugs are bad and addiction really isn't cool, however im typing about RECOVERY (so there!).
i'd like to hear other peoples stories in dealing with addiction and if they personally found support groups like AA or NA any use.
i wont dignify with a name, but i've been using this thing on/off since around summer 2003, with breaks and relapses in between (never touched it in 2006), and began dabbling again at the start of this year which has gradually increased .
i have a v.gud friend who has struggled with alcoholism and has been attending AA for nearly a year now, something which i was really cynical about (when does support itself become an addiction?), but to be honest i have v.little dignity or care to be cynical. she's coming with me either on sat or sun to this NA meeting as i have no ****ing clue what to expect or what kind of people will be there.
i'm 24 next week, about to become a truely irretrievable "grown-up", its time i left behind my comfort blanket and moved on because i keep getting in **** situations and i dont feel young
