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 see 🧐 you put it in the Addiction section, Pandora! :-bd

I’m an airhead... shocker! ;))
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.
