online meeting times? How do I get a sponsor?
« on: February 05, 2017, 08:11:41 PM »
To all:
When are the online meeting times? Do I need skype (or a certain program) to be part of that meeting?
Also, what can I do to get a sponsor (I feel that's the key to my recovery?)
Regarding who I am, I'm completely new to NA. I've been taking prescription painkillers every other day for about 3 years; and daily the 10 years prior to that (I had undiagnosed sinus problems that triggered a then-legitimate need for painkillers.) I'm 49 years old.
I have a respected doctor prescribing me my pain medicine--but I have no business being on them 3 years after a successful sinus surgery.
Any help is greatly appreciated--and please excuse if I've asked any dumb questions!

online meeting times are at 10pm est every night although we do strongly encourage local meetings you don't need Skype or anything just come in the chat room everything is typed we also tell folks to get a sponsor at local meetings if you need help finding local meetings let us know
recovery offers us the promise of freedom from active addiction but to get that promise takes effort on our part
