Narcotics Anonymous has been around for a long time helping drug addicts stay clean no matter what their drug of choice is. Adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous in the late 40's NA has been helping men and women stay clean from drugs since the early 50's when the first NA meeting emerged.
Members of Narcotics Anonymous all have 2 things in common; this fellowship of men and women all realize that drugs have become a problem in their lives, and they have the desire to stop using.
They don't care what you've done in the past, how much you used or who your drug connections were. All they're interested in is to stop using, stay clean and to help others do the same thing. Narcotics Anonymous focuses on the 'disease of addiction', not any particular drug.
Thousands of men and women have successfully changed their lives around staying free from drug use because of what they've learned through Narcotics Anonymous and their members. NA offers hope, wisdom and strength to those in need and freedom from their active addiction.
There is really only one way to stay 'drug free' and that means you can't take that first drug. This is hard to do on your own. The Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous offers their members a way to change, and coming to the meetings, working the program, listening, sharing and supporting each other makes a drug free life possible. It's been proven over and over again because thousands of people have done it and continue to do so.
If you're looking for a way to live life drug free come to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, you're under no obligation, it doesn't cost anything and you can just sit and listen. Rest assured the members know what you're going through because they've all been there. They know what addiction does to your life and they know what it takes to stay clean. The most important thing is that they know what freedom from using drugs feels like now and they want to share that with anyone seeking recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous has a questionnaire you can review which will help you decide if you're an addict. A lot of addicted drug users realize they have a problem with drugs but don't think their addicted. It's important that you answer the questions honestly. These questions are for your own personal evaluation not for others to see. The Narcotics Anonymous Questionnaire was written by recovering addicts in NA so trust the fact that they know what addiction is and the behaviors associated with it.
Don't give up on yourself and don't give up on the meetings. At first most people are uncomfortable and may not get as much out of their first meeting because of that. Maybe you're still not sure if you're an addict. Do yourself a favor and give the meetings a chance before you completely make up your mind.
Remember addicts live to use and use to live, there is light at the end of this dark tunnel and members of NA will support you the whole way.
