Hi First time posting

Hi First time posting here... been an addict since I was a child over two decades ago.

Are there really no face to face meetings in Brooklyn or Manhattan? I assumed there would be at least a few. Taking a train to Tarrytown or leaving the boroughs puts a huge hole in my day. Is OLGA mostly a chatroom/phone meeting thing? Thanks for your responses...

Welcome AllisterHolland!

Welcome AllisterHolland! Although we don't have alot of face-to-face meetings yet, they are growing. We have 4 meetings online a day some in this chatroom, stepchat, or by voice in mumble. The times are listed here http://olganon.org/?q=node/46551. I'm in Cleveland where we have a face-to-face meeting of us gaming addicts, but I also attend the online meetings which have helped tremendously. Hope to see you in one!

Hugs, Lisa Video game free since 4/17/2014

Dear AllisterHollard, Gaming

Dear AllisterHollard,

Gaming will put a nice hole in your day too. There was a Brooklyn meeting. You are welcome to start a meeting there if you like.

We are a fairly new addiction, and fairly new in recovery as well.

I'm in upstate NY, but wouldn't mind going down to the city for a meeting :). Would be nice to get out and meet others while also touring the city a bit!

Hi dillydally, welcome. Please send me a private message if you'd like the details of the meeting in Tarrytown. Also, looking back in the thread there are a number of people who want a meeting in NYC. You could contact them and set somethig up. Good luck!

Would also be interested in meeting in New York City, and willing to coordinate it too! Those who are interested can toss me a PM if there isn't a group going already, and if there is, I'd love to receive details on the next meeting. I live in Manhattan.

Interested in Establishing Manhattan Meeting

Hey everyone,

I am establishing a Manhattan based meeting for recovering video game addicts and those who are abusing technology. Please PM me if you are interested, so we can connect. I have not yet established a definite time/location, and will probably only do so when I either (A) find another person who wants to recover and can establish a convenient time to meet with or (B) find that there is no opinion or person who's schedule I have to work around and will therefore just set up shop at the easiest/best time for me.

Thanks!
