Is anyone interested in doing a 12 step study around limerence?

I know David has recommended on the website that it may be helpful to attend SLAA meetings, but I have in the past and haven't had great results. I feel that it might be helpful to work the 12 steps with other limerents, if there are any who are willing to give it a go.

If not I'll just do my work in my corner, but I thought it was worth a shot.

I was dragged to some SLAA meetings by a friend but sadly I didn't have a good experience there at all :(

I feel you! Who decided that it was a good idea to place addicts with an addictions to other people in rooms with addicts who are addicted to other people?! I felt that my local SLAA groups were full of well-meaning people without a lot of recovery, and I was getting 'high' there.

I am interested. I have wanted to go to more SLAA meetings, but the town I live in now, there are none. About 30 miles away though, there are some. I only went to like 2 mtgs but just to be able to verbalize these issues helped. I could see how a SA could encounter problems in these mtgs, though!

I’m interested as long as I can stay in the loop keeping the discussions on the forum.

Just a thought.... Maybe the topic can be part of the Members Only section so we have more anonymity and can keep the general chat section less congested. IDK sometimes I’m hesitant to post thinking I’m a hog or something. I’ll be free to post as often as I want in this thread without feeling like an attention hog. I know that’s my problem but it’s there. I’m a weirdo.

**** Daaaaaavid!?! Can we have our own 12 Step section?? If not, maybe just move it to Addictions?!?! ;;)

LOL! I was debating about putting it in a member's only thread, but I was also wondering if some lurkers who don't necessarily want to join the forum might get some use out of it if it were more publicly available. I really like your idea about a 12 step subforum! Might have to pester David.

But if people are more comfortable having it in a private forum, I can ask the thread(s) be moved. I'm flying by the seat of my pants and open to whatever makes people most comfortable.
