I don't think i ever would have walked into a.f2f meeting as my first meeting. Yet, years in, i needed more human interaction than i was getting over a screen.

Being that there were no face to face meetings, i announced that there was a meeting at a local starbucks and i attended the online meeting while i waited for someone to show up.

That's cool, hirsh, great idea.

We DO need more ftf CGAA meetings. I think we haven't found the formula for creating truly viable, growing ones as yet. There are A LOT of gaming addicts out there (some estimates say that between 2% and 6% of gamers are severely addicted; my guess is there are a lot more that would benefit from our fellowship).

I have always hoped that the online meetings would grow to the point that there would be enough people to have 2 or 3 in some large cities, which I think is helpful (though not required) for starting a meeting. It's been slow. There are several hundred people who have signed up for the forum. If we could just get most of them to share where they live, I'll bet there would be some connections made.

In any case, I'm incredibly glad our fellowship exists, in whatever form. I can call just about anyone, and what I've gotten from that (friendship, fellowship, sponsors and the program) has saved me from the day-by-day death of gaming addiction. Hugs and thanks to all of you.
