Does anyone know if there are any live meetings?A,A I'm in the Orlando area.A,A
There are some members that live in your area, but as of yet, OLGA has very very few face to face meetings. What we have now are online meetings five days a week. Stick around maybe we'll grow enough to have a live meeting in Orlando area. I live in St Petersburg. Another thing to consider is another 12 step group who will gladly accept you as a member desiring to get clean, and thats N.A. There are a lot of NA meetings in your neighborhood.

I am down in the West Palm area and get together with some others locally just to chat (I wouldn't call it a "meeting") It is nice to sit across from somebody over dinner and be able to talk with somebody who "understands" what you are talking about. Like Gamelessly said, there are a number of on-line meetings to choose from right now, and even if they are not face to face they are still very helpful. [/size]

I am in the planning stage of creating the Florida State Chapter of OLGA. I would like to have our first annual meeting later this summer, in the Fort Lauderdale / West Palm area. We could all meet around a dinner out somewhere and have a brief sharing session and plan out starting meetings. I want to have meetings in school systems and colleges and universities throughout the state. That is where I see the biggest opportunity for establishment of groups within the Floida Chapter. The Florida chapter will most certainly eventually have to become incorporated, but maybe not this year. After all we dont even know when to meet or where to meet yet.
I think you got some really good ideas. At least your targeting the right places.
Hey Kayber, . I missed your msg where you said you were in WPB as well. 8) . If you ever feel you want to sit down face to face to chew the proverbial fat over a coffee or something let me know. . When I first quit I got together with Solei and her husband. We would meet for dinner every so often. I remember those first few meetings, when I was feeling lost and had nobody to talk to about quiting who understood what I was talking about. Solei was quitting at the same time so I think it was good for both of us.
I actually live in orlando and have just started quitting
yep, im a quitter
Did the Florida Chapter ever get started? I am really looking for some support as my spouse is a gamer.
