W.A. Member to Member Networking

Do you want to start a new meeting? Are you looking for people to start a mailing list (chat group) on line? Send your posting to webupdates AT workaholics-anonymous.org and if appropriate and W.A.-related, it may be included here. No commercial links please. Please put "W.A. Networking Page" on the subject line, and indicate which information you want listed and how, otherwise we cannot tell which messages are sent in private and which are from people who want their information published here. Also, please let us know when the information is out-of-date and needs to be changed or removed.

In addition to these listings, there is on the right of this page a list of cities where individuals have registered their interest in starting a meeting. You can contact us if you live nearby and want to help start a meeting with one of these Meeting Catalysts.

I am a workaholic, recovering Alanon and a recovering Compulsive Overeater in OA. I have recently been working on these WA steps with my OA sponsor, but I would be interested in having an on line female WA sponsor who has completed 4-9 with another sponsor. I am from Indiana.

The spouse of a workaholic writes:

I lost my husband of 8 years to workaholism. For most of those 8-years I tried to figure out what was wrong with me! The lifestyle choices (what life) of a workaholic impacts everyone around them and leaves invisible little cuts that fester. While we are apart now - the pain lingers and the questions remain. I had no idea what I was dealing with until it was too late. It is an invisible addiction that is socially supported and often rewarded.

I would be interested in a group in North Vancouver. BC. I could host or join and existing group for spouses.

Webmaster's Note: This spouse has moved on with her life but others may wish to seek help at For Friends and Family

Meetings Catalysts

Meeting Catalysts

(A catalyst is something that promotes an action but is not used up in the process.) Other people may call or have called from your area seeking a meeting. Since no meeting is listed near you, you may wish to be listed in the "MEETING CATALYST" category. With your permission, your first name and telephone number will be listed on our website and will be given to other callers from your area. You and they may wish to form a new W.A. meeting in the future. In that event we can supply Meeting Starter Kits at a small charge (let us know if you want one). Please fill out the Meeting Catalyst Form and return it to W.A. World Service if you want to become a Meeting Catalyst.




Cities with Meeting Catalysts

These are cities in which individuals have registered with us and indicated an interest in starting a meeting. Detailed contact information can generally be found on the meetings page. It can also be obtained from the W. A. World Service Organization through phone contact, US Mail, or email.
