When recovering from an addiction, it is important to remember that it is an on-going process and it can be difficult. Your chances of success are much greater if you are not going through the process alone. Attending meetings can enable you to share your experiences with those who have been through something similar. Alternatively, you can listen to the stories of others to help you feel less alone. There are many organisations who provide meetings for those who are recovering from addiction, some of them are listed below:
