proposal for directing people who need help not provided by CGAA

I'm not sure that the redirection is the best solution, but I think some sort of link is necessary.  Listing ITAA would be in support of tradition 5 - primary purpose being to support recovery from gaming addiction, not internet addiction There are several problems I am seeing happening at the momen...

May 26th group conscience meeting agenda and minutes

I don’t know that I will be at the business meeting on the 26th. There’s an AA/Al-anon conference going on nearby and I might be there instead. One thing to think about in the meeting format would be to have a section describing what an outside issue is, but also saying that there is a risk of apply...

Are you coming to the meetup?

I am coming and am flexible as lo vegetarian or non-vegetarian diet - my main dietary request is that there be some form of protein at breakfast. Eggs is fine.

Fifth PA CGAA Meetup info, May 17-20

I booked a flight landing in Philadelphia and just sent money to Scott. I will either try to catch a ride with Linda or rent a car and try to see the Barnes museum on Monday during the day before my evening flight. I'm hoping beds aren't already filled up...

Literature and the word "god" questions

I'm reading old posts, perhaps in an attempt to get my internet fix when most of the rest of the internet is blocked. <img class="smilies" src="https://groups.tapatalk-cdn.com/smilies/3648/1534602038.411-smiley.gif" width="15" height="17" alt=":-)" title="Smile"> I spoke with someone locally who has...
