updating

Yes, I'll pay attention if any meetings are stopping or starting and do my best to update the list. Can you put the link to the updated meeting list in your signature?

I've been thinking about leading a meeting on Zoom on Saturdays, maybe 8:30 PM Eastern US time, once I have my child care schedule worked out. Also I need to check with the other OLGA meeting leaders about the format.

Hello All, My name is Lena my tag has always been Psy, call me which ever. I'm an addict. I'm an addict of so many things. Anything that fills the void and for a long time is was WoW or Facebook games, then PlayStation and Xbox games and finally apps. Didn't matter the game didn't matter the type as long as I could be apart of that community. I gamed so much I almost lost my husband, neglected my kids, lost jobs, lost touch with reality. I know there are many Out in the world with this affliction and few in these rooms but I pray they as well as myself can find comfort and self control through the 12 step programs available. Thank you all for keeping this program available. Thank you for letting me share here. Perhaps we can offer a text board on what's app?

Starting a meeting

I need to find somebody in Orange County, California that would be willing to start an in-person OLGA meeting with me. I've stopped playing video games, but I am beginning to feel the impulse to relapse. I know that the best way to fix unhealthy behaviours is by being of service to people with similar issues, though it isn't really a fix; it's a temporary reprieve. I have somebody in mind, but I haven't yet been able to get a hold of him. If there is anybody in Orange County, here in California that would be willing to start an in-person meeting with me, please let me know. I have been thinking of holding the meeting in a park or something like that, the idea of "touching grass" came to mind, and I thought that'd be pleasant  = ). Thank you in advance! I also have been considering printing out fliers (the outreach brochure) to hand out at a local gaming convention, but perhaps that is something better left until I have a more solid foundation in my recovery.

Sincerely,

--Kory-Mac
