Houston, TX Meetings

Hi there, my name is Mae, and I'm looking for other OLGA members to meet with in Houston, TX. I attend ACA, Al-Anon, CoDA, OA, and open AA meetings, but my primary addiction is gaming. Even though I get alot out of going to the above listed meetings, I feel alienated since so few people know about gaming addiction. I've only met one other gaming addict since I started the program 3 months ago. Does anyone in or around Houston want to meet?

Sablerain, it is great that

Sablerain, it is great that you are starting up a face-to-face meeting in your area! I live in the Vancouver, B.C. area so I obviously would not be able to attend (at least not regularly). Posting a notice here is a great start. However, some people don't read very many of the posts. If you would like to find out which members here have indicated that they live in your area and contact them yourself, you can use the Member Lookup By Location service (obtained from the upper-right link when you click on the Meetings tab). Just select only the state of Texas from the list on the left and then click on the Submit button. When I tried that, I saw that there are quite a few members, with just one of them being in Houston but quite a few of them not listing their city so they may be in the Houston area.

Good luck with your meetings, and remember to have patience if the turnout is slow and unsteady, especially initially.

I am in Houston and would be interested in this. After losing all my fantasy online friends it would be nice to find a new real life friend(s).

Excellent!

I suggest your first meeting be somewhere over coffee or the equivalent, you need neither meeting halls nor regular schedules at first.

Good luck to you both.

@ J. Doe Thanks for the suggestions. I'll PM the Texas people and see if I can find more people in Houston.

@ Xandtar Yeah, I was planning on something like a coffee shop for starters.
