"For me, fill-in-the-blank Anonymous was the first step, and a worthy one.  There (at least in CoDA, ACA, and the like -- I'd think AA, NA, &c., are more focused on the substance), you can talk about anything, get it out there, w/o…"

"Don't worry Steven. Just because you live on the street does not necessarily mean you are broke or a virgin. Barry Badrinath lived on the street and he wasn't either of those. You could follow in his footsteps. "
