New to NA


NA is a non-profit, non-professional fellowship of addicts helping addicts. It costs nothing to belong.  Someone new to our fellowship may call us on our helplines (listed below), or simply attend a meeting. “Open” meetings welcome non-addicts who may attend and observe. “Closed” meetings are only for those looking at their own drug problem. Call us, e-mail anyone listed under “Contact Information” below, or just walk into a meeting.  As our literature says, “We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.”

For Professionals

Professionals who wish to discuss a relationship of cooperation between themselves and NA in more detail can click the e-mail link under “Contact Us” above and send us an e-mail to the choice that says “Please forward to the appropriate person.” Provide contact information, and you will be contacted by our Public Relations committee, an all-volunteer group of local members whose purpose is to forge just such relationships. More information can be found on na.org

Surrendering self-will
Page 213
"We want and demand that things always go our way. We should know from our past experience that our way of doing things did not work."
Basic Text, p. 93

All of us have ideas, plans, goals for our lives. There's nothing in the NA program that says we shouldn't think for ourselves, take initiative, and put responsible plans into action. It's when our lives are driven by self-will that we run into problems.

When we are living willfully, we go beyond thinking for ourselves-we think only of ourselves. We forget that we are but a part of the world and that whatever personal strength we have is drawn from a Higher Power. We might even go so far as to imagine that other people exist solely to do our bidding. Quickly, we find ourselves at odds with everyone and everything around us.

At this point, we have two choices. We can continue in our slavery to self-will, making unreasonable demands and becoming frustrated because the planet doesn't spin our way. Or we can surrender, relax, seek knowledge of God's will and the power to carry that out, and find our way back to a condition of peace with the world. Thinking, taking initiative, making responsible plans-there's nothing wrong with these things, so long as they serve God's will, not merely our own.

Just for Today: I will plan to do God's will, not mine. If I find myself at odds with everything around me, I will surrender self-will.
