Hello, today is my first day on this site. I love it! Can anyone tell me what these meetings are like?

I don't have a ton of time to write here, but I go to them.

Up in the search box, type coda meeting and there will be several posts about them - read thru them and you will find a few of my posts and what I experience.

Otherwise, I am sure others will chime in when they can.

I think they are Okay! I have gone to three. It is recommended that you try a few groups before you settle on one. The main problem I have is the reference to God/higher power. I'm a little conflicted because God/religion was a way for my mother to use/manipulate me. However being with a group of people who understoood my behaviors and feelings does help. They also help provide supportive materials to help you on your journey of recovery.

I admit, I still have not found my way to a CODA meeting. I know I need to go.
