Please read this first!

If you live near another WA meeting, it is best to reach out for support there. Make the trip and pick up a phone support list.

Well, it looks like you're close enough to Olympia and can reach out for support there; in fact, there might be a few people who are willing to help start the new meeting with you. If you haven't attended that meeting yet, you can go an ask for a phone support list and 5 min. at the end of the meeting to discuss your new endeavor: it's so much easier to start a meeting with a partner or two or three!

Woohoo! I could drive to Shelton as a day trip. Let us know when it it up. I'm going to try to make Witchiepoos new Tacoma meeting too.

I go to one in Vancouver now.

Hugs,

I use to live in Aberdeen and wanted to start a group. So I went to Olympia's meeting several times, they are so nice and were interested in helping. I ended up moving to OKC, OK. And I am currently looking for a meeting here. I am surprised that that there are not many for a bigger city. And they do have drug problems here, like everywhere else. :) My AS and AD are still in WA.

Good Luck! :)
