Re: giving it another try
Hey, just one more quick thing.... if you're not yet ready for meetings, you might look at coming here as "medicine" too. If you have someone in your life you trust, a best friend, or sibling, drag them to a meeting with you for moral support. Be it AA , or NA. Most likely a "regular" at that meeting will extend his hand and introduce himself. Remember this persons name, (even if you have to go to the Men's room and write it down.)
Next time you go, re-introduce yourself to this same person, and you will very likely be introduced to other "regulars". And theres your start! I'm betting you will be very pleasantly surprised at how welcome you will feel.
Good Luck! Sherbear
