I started this community because I'm a single mom, meetings in city are scarce~ at least during the times I'm free, and I really need to connect with others who are working the steps, as well as for those who are new to the steps and just cant take it any more~know there has to be something better~ and have found this page.
I'm posting every day or so to keep it alive until we get more folks in here. I know I'm not the only one with the need for this community.
Is this my  Field of Dreams?

Great Sheryl! I'm glad your here.
Guess what, you've already taken step one (by being here) so you're in! Hooray!
And actually you're in your step two (by reaching out, coming out of hiding, so to speak) Awesome!
I would continue your search, and read literature on Step 2. If OA literature doesn't answer enough of your questions about the steps you can always refer to the AA Twelve and Twelve. It is, however, geared toward alcoholics, keep that in mind.
If you have any specific questions for me I'd be glad to help if I can. Thank you so much for posting!
Your kids are adorable, btw!

Hey! Thanks for inviting me to join! I am 37 days abstinent this time around and doing my best to really work my program.

I know it's hard to get out of the house for meetings with kids, I have 2 under 5. So most of my meetings are online - www.therecoverygroup.org and the email lists/loops - lists.therecoverygroup.org

that site realy helps me and I receive readigs daily and attend meetongs daily. I am on step 3 right now and more than 2 thirds thru the first 30 questions. Have given away 17.5 pounds already, but more important feel much better than I have in a loooong time :)

My must have books are "The Big Book" Alcoholics Anonymous, I replace alcohol with sugar or food, drinking with COE or binging, etc. The OA 12x12. and For Today, full of daily meditations, one for every day :)

I call my sponsor 5 days a week. wEigh and measure most of my food and stay with my food plan for today.

HAppy to meet you and good to see Sheryl here! :)
