This is my 1st day to accept I have a problem. I want to go to a meeting and have printed off a meeting schedule. the meeting IO want to attend states that it is a closed discussion. Does this mean I can go or I can not. I am soo confused!!
Please advice....

You can attend that meeting if you are an alcoholic, you have a desire to stop drinking, and you introduce yourself with "Hi! My name is (yourname), and I'm an alcoholic."

My suggestion would be: If they allow you or ask you to introduce yourself, to introduce yourself and then say nothing more than

"I'm new and I need help. Would someone please see me after the meeting."

Closed meetings are only for those that already identify as an alcoholic. If you're not sure -- then, try going to an open meeting first and ask someone there to explain it to you.

Best wishes,
