Hi Roman

I got sober in southern California too! Went to meetings at the Valley Alano, Triangle Club, Canyon Club, TLC, and "the sobriety capitol of the world"--the old 502 Club in Covina. If any of those are in your area, I hope you're finding the same kind of warm, wonderful, fun. crazy fellowship I found there.

Keep coming back....

Hi aquest and welcome back!

I was a chronic relapser for almost two years after my first AA meeting. I just couldn't "get it" at first. I finally got sober using AA's one day at a time plan. It will work for you too. Glad you found this forum.

Thank you. I never heard of these meetings, but then again, I'm new to AA (39 days). Covina isn't too far from me. I'll have to check out the 502 Club.

Each of the Alano Clubs I mentioned have one or more meeting rooms which are rented to various AA, NA, Alanon, ACA. etc meeting groups throughout the day, but the clubs themselves are separate entities with boards of directors and are not affiliated with AA. Typically, each club has a coffee/snack bar, a lounge area with couches,, tables & chairs for chat, card, chess, checkers, etc games and (my fav) a pool table. The clubs are a fun & safe place for AA members to hang out and meet other people in recovery. The "502 Club" is really easy to get to as it's a few blocks north on Citrus, right off the 10 freeway in Covina. They have noon AA discussion meetings every day and their Friday night speakers meeting is very popular.

Hi aquest. I'm new here too with only 42 days sobriety, yeah, I'm still counting the days :)
Hang in there, and if you want/need to talk, I'm a good listener.
