A Guide For Newcomers

Welcome to ITAA! We’re glad you found our fellowship and are learning the good news that there’s hope for internet and technology addicts. If you’re brand new, here are a few suggestions on how to get started.

  1. We recommend that you try joining one of our meetings online or by phone. There is no need to receive permission before joining. We’re very friendly and welcoming of newcomers, and you will have the opportunity to share what you’re going through or ask any questions. It’s also okay to just listen in. There’s no pressure or commitment to come back for a second meeting, so it’s alright if you end up deciding that this isn’t the right fit for you.
  2. We have a whatsapp support group for staying connected outside the meetings. This is also a great place to meet other members and to ask questions. Feel free to contact us with your whatsapp phone number and we can add you to the group.
  3. We have a list of tools and practices that many of our members have found very useful as we’ve gotten sober from our addiction. In particular, many newcomers start by writing top, middle, and bottom lines. You can find information about this tool and others on our Tools of Recovery page.

Again, welcome. We hope some of what you find here may be of help to you. If you have any other questions, feel free to write us through the website.
