Hi shannel glad you found us I suggest getting to some NA meetings even if you have to go to another town it is important to have the eye to eye contact with another addict if you need help finding meetings just ask hugs

Hi :)

I am sorry it took awhile for me to get back to you on this.  The best way to get current information about meetings in that area would be to call the help line.  The Narcotics Anonymous Help Line Number in United Arab Emirates is
+971 50 131 0055

Good luck, and please feel free to join us in the chat room for an online meeting anytime as well.  Our meetings are each night at 10 pm EST.  Hope to talk to you soon!

Hey Quinn:


My name is Steven from California.


I hope you can recognize that you're well on your way to getting through this merely by the fact that you were willing to reach out on this website for support and guidance on how to deal with your loss!


I can't imagine the pain you are feeling right now!  Let me first say that nothing anyone can say can ever truly heal the pain from the loss of a loved one, especially a parent! But hopefully, just knowing that there are many many others out here who have gone through this exact thing can be some level of comfort to you!


I am truly sorry for your loss!


I hope you will come to the point soon to always remember that you can celebrate her life and be so thankful to her for giving you your life!
Without her you would not be here!


I say that since this is a very critical moment in your life, if it were me, I would seek out and surround myself with a few true friends who can at least for awhile, keep in close contact with me as I work my way through my emotions around this loss to the point where I can feel better about being on my own.


Meetings, Meetings, Meetings, Meetings! Try as best as you can to go to as many as you can!  Don't be afraid to share your pain with others at the meetings you go to because you just might be not only helping yourself, but several others in the room who are going through something very similar and who are just not sharing it with others! When you go to meetings you are helping yourself by helping others.


I know that for me, the friends I have made in meetings are the best friends I have ever had.


Stay strong! Seek out guidance from your Higher Power. And most of all, do whatever you need to do for yourself to not allow yourself to relapse. Always think back on how you got to where you are in your recovery now and always know that there are many other ways to cope with the pain you're feeling from that loss other than picking up again and using.


In my experience with others I know who have gone through this and chose to use again to mask that pain, when they came down off their "High", that pain was 10 times worse!


Finally, alway remember this: "Every moment of your life, always do what is in your best interest!"  ........


My heart goes out to you!

Batts welcome sorry it took so long for a response I just saw it  if your not yet attend some local meetings and talk about it I suspect that you will find a lot of support if you don't know where local meetings are go to www.na.org  I have been through a brake up that hurt very much and had to talk about it and pray about it and finally came to a point where I could accept that it was over hope this helps

Hey all, my name is Quinn, and I'm new here. I am a trans man and an opiate addict, and trying desperately to recover. I lost my mother last week to cancer, so this has kind of set me back a bit. Hope to make some friends here and get support.

Ask It Basket / NA for English Speakers in United Arab Emirates??
« Last post by librarian11111 on August 06, 2017, 06:24:04 PM »
Good afternoon all.
I am an addict and I'm considering moving to the United Arab Emirates to teach English as a Foreign Language.
Since I can't speak Arabic, I'm wondering if any of you know if there are any NA groups for English Speakers in the United Arab Emirates? I couldn't move there unless there were such groups
I sent an email to an NA group in UAE asking this question and never got a response.
Thanks to all who read and/or respond to this message!
