To shy to go to a meeting

I'm desperate to get help but the thought of going to a meeting is so scary. I live in Belfast. Is anyone else scared to go alone??

Hi Ash - sorry for the delay

Hi Ash - sorry for the delay in answering. This forum is no longer monitored. 

Don't be scared. I was nervous my first time, but once I was in the room, I realized I had come home.

wishing you a clean day,

me too!!

hey, i definitely relate, i want help and i think talking in person with others would really benefit me and my recovery but there’s this little voice in my head that keeps telling me i’m not bad enough and i don’t deserve it?? and the anxiety of going somewhere new is real aha. you aren’t alone!!

that voice postponed my first

that voice postponed my first meeting too, but when I did finally come along, I realized I was amongst friends.

That voice still talks to me. It says I don't need to come anymore. But I don't listen to it

wishing you a clean day,

hiya

hiya Ash, I felt the same and spent along time talking myself out of it. Even when i got to face to face meetings, i was still scared and the fear of the unknown and thinking it was a cult. I just kept going back it got alot easyier. many feel this way, just have some faith. Another way to start is the on-line meeting. its on voice and no camera. there four meetings a week and be a great place to build some confidence. this is the link ILS hugzx Ade. https://online.ukna.org/
