Hello my friend,
I'm so glad to hear you're doing well
I know all about the excitement and scared feelings (all at once). Its natural to feel this way. I'm "still" feeling excited/scared every day - because every day is a new day.
About the NA meetings...
When I went to my first meeting, I was SO scared. I was actually shaking as I entered the room. I walked in, saw ALL eyes staring at me, but when I looked at each individual (I did a quick scan of the room), their eyes were so inviting. They all welcomed me, one man even got up to give me his seat, and went to get another for himself. It was the best day of my life. I felt SO included, everyone wanted to know my story, there were hugs and love throughout the entire meeting. I've always been very close with my family, yet pretty shy whenever I socialized with new people. That night, I felt so confortable - like I was with my OWN family.
I heard different stories about where people were from, what drugs they used, how important NA was - and I can honestly tell you that I look forward to every meeting I go to.
I'm getting ready now, for a meeting tonight. I am excited to go and see whats new with everyone. I hope you enjoy your experience with NA...
Let us know what happens, and always remember how you feel today. There will be bad days, for sure, but you should always reflect on today
Love and hugs,
