New York City, let's meet up

15 posts in this topic

Anyone in NYC? I attend NA/AA meetings, but have always known something was amiss -- could really use identification and community. If anyone is down, please let me know!

Hey, I'm in New Jersey but I lived in NYC for 10 years (5 on Adderall) I still like visiting the city from time to time. Where do you attend the NA meetings? I am looking for one to go to.

Hey! The majority of the meetings I go to are in Manhattan (usually somewhere downtown, or the east village) but I have a few I attend regularly in Brooklyn. If you're looking for a good one to go to, let me know which day you're intending to go!

New Yorkers, is this page still active? I could really use the company of someone who really gets what this is like. If so, please don't hesitate to reach out. I just opened an account on this forum so this is all still fairly new to me.

Hey gang, I’m having a really hard time with meetings. Can’t seem to find my place in AA/NA/MA/CMA etc. 

 

What is your experience with finding meetings that are helpful to you?

@Sleepyandsober You would be surprised how many Adderall addicts you will find in AA. I go to AA regularly, but unfortunately... most of them have other addictions such as cocaine/heroin abuse. Cocaine seems to be the closest thing to Adderall as far as comparison... so it should be easier to relate with them. Personally, Adderall helped me counteract the hangover and depressant effect of alcohol... though thats not the primary reason I took Adderall. I'm sure many people in AA can relate. I cant speak for NA since I havent been there in forever :P.

@tuneum, I go to AA regularly and per my sponsor's suggestion, have been attending NA 2x/week. No fellowship feels quite "right". Would love others sharing their experiences!
