While many of us are spending today baking pies and making cranberry relish, looking forward to tomorrow’s food bacchanal, I know there are some of you out there who are dreading the holiday. Perhaps you’ve alienated your family or friends and don’t feel like there’s any room at the table for you, or maybe you’ve got things a little more under control but you know from past experience that even the dope man seems to take Thanksgiving off and that thought worries you.
In short, I know that out of the bajillion readers b.la has, some of you are going to end up strung out on Thanksgiving. If that person turns out to be you, know that there are a couple of “marathon meetings” of Narcotics Anonymous in the SFV starting tonight and running through Thanksgiving. Details follow after the jump.
The meeting on Saticoy and Lindley runs from tonight at 10pm until tomorrow at 10pm. The meeting at Reseda and Superior begins at 7:30 tonight and runs until 11:30am Friday. Both events have a potluck dinner. If you’re lonely or hungry and you think you might have a drug problem, why not stop by? Worst case scenario, you get to hug some tattooed bikers and you’ll have a good story to tell. For more information on Narcotics Anonymous, check out some of their recovery literature online or look for a meeting near you. This weekend is also the annual regional convention of NA in Anaheim, so if you love what you find at those marathon meetings, you can spend all weekend celebrating. Because if a little is good, a lot is even better, right? (Photo by Lenny Montana used through Creative Commons)
